Mark Levitt, vice president for Collaborative Computing at IDC, told LinuxInsider that IT departments are looking for ways to reduce both solution acquisition and management costs without forcing users to change the way they collaborate. Open-Xchange 5 is one alternative.
Netline Internet Service today released Open-Xchange Server 5, a platform-agnostic open-source collaboration system.
The software is designed to allow IT administrators to create applications without changing existing infrastructure components. In other words, administrators don’t have to switch databases, directory services, message transfer agents, e-mail or Web servers.
