SugarCRM Professional wins ‘best open source solution’ award. Huh?
The Software & Information Industry Association has given SugarCRM Professional an award for ‘Best Open Source Solution’ in their 2009 CODie Awards. Either the name of the award or the criteria for it are wrong.
I could see SugarCRM Professional getting ‘Best Commercial Open Source Solution’ or ‘Best Product Based on an Open Source Core’. I could also see their community edition getting an open source award. But the professional edition getting an open source award is off the mark. My guess is that the SIIA are a little new to the whole open source / commercial open source thing.
Nice to see Adaptive Planning get an award, I’ve met those guys a few times. They got an award for ‘Best Business Intelligence or Knowledge Management Solution’, which is odd for a budgeting and planning application, but well done anyway.
