Open-Source Alternatives to Proprietary Enterprise Software

I’ve said in the past, that open-source’s lack of adoption in the enterprise space is due, at least in part, to the lack of “focus-group tested ammunition“. Today, I hope the community can help even the odds with this collaboratively edited list of open-source alternatives to typical government and enterprise software needs

I was thrilled to come across this comprehensive list of open-source options for government last week, part of the UK’s Open Source Procurement Toolkit, but was disappointed to see, in addition to it being published in most government agencies favorite web publishing format (PDF), it hadn’t been updated in more than a year.

With a little find-and-replace magic, I converted the PDF into a stand-alone web page (based on Twitter’s open-source Bootstrap), cleaned up a few typos, and published it to GitHub in hopes that it can be collaboratively edited by the broader open-source community.

Please browse the list, and if you find any additions, corrections, or improvements, fork the page on GitHub and submit a pull request.
