LinuxWorld – Boston 2006: SugarCRM Joins the Eclipse Foundation

Joins as an Add-In-Provider Member

"SugarCRM's strong community and knowledge of open source development will provide valuable support for the Eclipse platform," said Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation, as among the many announcements at LinuxWorld Conference & Expo yesterday in Boston was that SugarCRM Inc. has joined the Eclipse Foundation Inc. to support the continued development of Eclipse's development platform.

SugarCRM joins the Eclipse Foundation as an Add-In-Provider member.

"SugarCRM is delighted to be an Add-In Provider member of the Eclipse Foundation, as we will help collaboration efforts between both Eclipse and SugarCRM's open source communities," stated John Roberts (pictured), co-founder, chairman and CEO of SugarCRM, one of the four sponsors of SYS-CON Events' upcoming Enterprise Open Source Conference, to be held in New York City June 5-6, 2006.

The Eclipse IDE, which supports version control system (VCS) repository access, automatic expansion of method name, visual diff, debugger with graphical user interface and plug-ins, is the development platform of choice within the SugarCRM community.

SugarCRM's decision to join the Eclipse Foundation is in recognition of the breadth and depth the Eclipse development environment offers to improve open source collaboration worldwide. Its competitor SalesForce.com has also joined Eclipse.
