Open Source ERP: Compiere’s new CEO first post

Don Klaiss, who recently joined Compiere as its new CEO, just wrote his very first post “Will Compiere remain an open source product?“, and it starts this way:

Shortly after joining Compiere as the new CEO, people began asking me about my plans for Compiere and whether we would be evolving from an open source business model to become a proprietary product. The answer is absolutely not!

With more than 1.1 million downloads of our software, we have become by far the most popular open source ERP project. I look forward to working with our customers and partners to create an even more active, vibrant community around our technology.

As I already wrote I’m looking forward to see Compiere fostering its own community through its new partner program, and I really wish Don all the best.
