ERP5 and Collaborative Portal Server Teams Announce Alliance for Global Information System

The ERP5 and Collaborative Portal Server teams announced at the Libre Software Meeting (LSM) international conference on Open Source / Free Software that they would join forces to provide the world first global Information System exclusively based on Open Source / Free Software. The Alliance of ERP5 and CPS will provide corporations with seamless integration of collaborative and quantitative information systems based on the Zope Open Source / Free Application Server. ERP5 allows to track quantitative information and implement management workflows, while CPS allows a group of users to share documents in multiple versions, implement administrative and publication workflows and create a single point of access to corporate information and services. The expected outcome of the ERP5/CPS Alliance will allow to share basic technology building blocks, including common user authentication, distributed data synchronisation, uniform internationalisation and other innovative technologies. It will also provide a common access to ERP workflow tasks from CPS portal page and CPS administrative and publication tasks from ERP5.
