"In this economy, employees who can save their
employers money are highly regarded and will potentially be in line
for advancement. Using open source technology is one great way to
help your company cut down on costs across the board.
"In this article, I'll share twenty great open source
applications that can help save your employer some money.
"1) eZ Publish: Rather than paying a small fortune for a decent
Web Content Management System, why not look to eZ Publish instead?
Designed to work with businesses needing to push out multiple
channels of content easily, eZ Publish takes it one step further
with one of the best portal/front page management solutions
available in the open source space.
"2) Talend Open Studio: Managing data is more than mere content
management, CRM or working with databases. These days, there is
business modeling, graphical development and real-time deployment
issues that must be considered within the modern enterprise realm.
Even more importantly, there needs to be an effective software
suite that allows the end user to roll all of this up into one
usable tool. Talend Open Studio is one potential solution that,
based on its feature set, might be the perfect fit for a business
in need. Data integration, data migration and data synchronization
operations are all things addressed by this software suite."
