When it comes to software selection, free software can be challenging to evaluate with the usual methodologies. The open source strategist and old time friend Roberto Galoppini has put together an easy to use methodology called SOSOpenSource and a tool to evaluate open source software based on strength (stable, mature and backed by a viable community), level of support (by a community or vendors) and potential for evolution (e.g. code quality).
Roberto run the method on Funambol and the results are really good. Of course, we knew that Funambol is a stable, mature, reliable free software project but it’s always good to see all confirmed by an objective analysis. Enjoy the presentation (slides about Funambol are at the end).
