Autonomic Resources Announces Availability of SugarCRM and Jaspersoft in GSA's Apps.gov Store
Availability clears the way for federal agencies to quickly and easily implement leading open source solutions and provides a path to backend code
SugarCRM is the world's leading open source customer relationship management (CRM) software. More than half a million users have implemented SugarCRM to execute marketing programs, grow sales, retain customers and create custom business applications. Jaspersoft's open source business intelligence (BI) suite is the world's most widely used BI software and was recently named by Gartner as the highest growth vendor worldwide in the BI software market from 2008 to 2009.
SugarCRM and Jaspersoft have a proven track record in helping government and businesses solve relationship management and BI challenges. JasperReports for SugarCRM is one of the most popular independent projects on SugarForge, SugarCRM's Developer web site, with over 225,000 downloads.
John Keese, president of Autonomic Resources, said, "Both platforms will run either as Cloud applications or within the customer's existing IT environment. This flexibility provides government agencies more control over software deployment and performance compared to solutions that can only be deployed in a hosted environment or on site. Both SugarCRM and Jaspersoft understand that the federal market has the need for platforms to support both models. A customer can easily implement and become productive in the Cloud model knowing that their investment can be fully ported to the private environment."
"There is strong demand from federal agencies for flexible, integrated CRM and business intelligence solutions," said Jeff Campbell, SugarCRM's vice president of worldwide sales. "We look forward to working with Autonomic Resources as they accelerate the adoption of leading open source solutions such as SugarCRM and Jaspersoft in the public sector."
Open source technologies continue to gain wider acceptance under the current federal administration's initiative to modernize IT by encouraging government agencies to use commercially available technology. As more federal agencies strive to reduce IT costs and speed implementation, the availability of open source solutions such as SugarCRM and Jaspersoft under the GSA and Apps.gov formats provides agencies with simplified acquisition processes to implement technologies and meet mission objectives rapidly.
"Working with Autonomic has given us the opportunity to further extend the reach of Jaspersoft's endtoend open source business intelligence solution into the government sector," said Jose Morales VP of business development at Jaspersoft. "Together we are providing federal agencies the powerful technologies they desire, at a fraction of the cost of proprietary solutions."
Autonomic Resources, SugarCRM and Jaspersoft will host a summer series of webinars in June and July on Commercial Open Source Technologies geared toward the federal, state and local markets.
