Salesforce is feeling the heat from open source CRM

By |2018-09-19T12:27:30+00:00September 19th, 2018|SuiteCRM|0 Comments

In medieval warfare, it was not uncommon for military campaigns against strategic strongholds to last for decades. Defenders built fortifications designed to endure long sieges and withstand heavy bombardment. Aggressor forces required fortitude, belief, patience, military knowledge and ammunition in sufficient quality and quantity to deliver relentless assault. Commanders of the protagonists wait for a particular moment. That moment when the first chink in the defender’s armour is exposed. A moment when it becomes apparent that the strategy is working and the probability of success increases dramatically. The moment when the defenders suddenly become very vulnerable. Salesforce is very good [...]

SugarCRM loses and open source wins

By |2018-08-20T09:34:19+00:00August 20th, 2018|News, SuiteCRM|0 Comments

Cupertino – August 15th 2018. Aged 14, quietly surrounded by venture capitalists, SugarCRM announced that their ambitions as a global brand had passed away. A press release announced that SugarCRM has been acquired by Accel-KKR. Accel-KKR’s own website gives the game away - “Accel-KKR focuses on middle market companies”. A cursory look at their portfolio tells you that this is not a company that builds global brands. It’s a company that acquires plodders. Their portfolio consists of companies like Kana and Kerridge. Both solid, unexciting performers that have been around for a long time but aren’t setting the heather on [...]

Open Source vs “Free” CRM’s

By |2018-09-21T11:19:41+00:00July 18th, 2018|SuiteCRM|0 Comments

“Fake news” is a rather unfortunate phrase that’s entered the common lexicon. Fake news is made possible by the unfettered publishing mechanisms afforded by the Internet. Anyone can write and publish anything. As long as it’s not criminal, it’ll get airtime somewhere. The more popular the site it’s published on, the more airtime it gets. Veracity is not an influencer in this model. If you search for “open source CRM”, many of the results returned are for “free and open source CRM” comparison articles. The authors of the articles rarely take time to explain the difference between open source [...]
