Let the competition begin...

A small private solutions provider in Maryland emerges as the first challenger in the post Oracle/Peoplesoft merger ERP marketplace. InfoSecure Open Systems & Solutions recently announced the release of technology and related services that enable the use of the open-source Compiere(TM) enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) application on the SAP-certified open- source MaxDB(TM) by MySQL database, providing a unique fully open-source alternative to Oracle/PeopleSoft.

Compiere is the #1 Open Source ERP/integrated CRM software solution with 750,000+ downloads. MySQL is the world's most popular open source database, with more than 5 million active installations. The company also announced that support for Computer Associates' Ingres, MySQL 5.0 and other open-source databases will be available soon.

Don Samoil, VP of Global Sales for InfoSecure points out: "With Oracle acquiring PeopleSoft, business may face fewer choices and higher costs. Having a true open-source ERP and CRM solution has become even more critical."

InfoSecure Open Systems & Solutions offers miCompiere (TM), a rapid installation and deployment service package for customers to quickly install or migrate to Compiere on MySQL/MaxDB. For a fixed price, customers can have their standard Compiere-on-MySQL/MaxDB system installed and running in a very short time.
