Some History of Open Source ERP edit

This is a lesson part of the module ERP Application Setup out of the Open Source ERP/Executive Masters course conducted by a private university.

Topics edit

  • Though Open Source has been around for some time, an ERP Application of high quality that is Open Source is a recent phenomena.
  • Compiere is the first such application to hit SourceForge in 2000. In 2006 it got funded and introduced a commercial approach that resulted in the community forking a new project called ADempiere.
  • Though these projects began to grow along their own paths, Compiere[1] has established a firm base of what ERP can be in Open Source.

Discussion edit
