InfoWorld says, that Magento is the best open source enterprise application in cathegory E-Commerce!

InfoWorld’s annual BOSSIES recognize the best free and open source software the world has to offer to businesses, IT professionals, and productive individuals who rely on computers to get work done. The 2008 BOSSIE winners include 60 products in eight categories covering business and productivity applications, development tools, middleware, networking, security, and storage. Credit goes to Mario Apicella, James R. Borck, Victor R. Garza, Rick Grehan, Mike Heck, Martin Heller, and the rest of the InfoWorld Test Center for these selections. The breadth and quality of free software offerings is in fact overwhelming, and many of our choices were difficult.

E-commerce

Don’t be fooled by the version 1 label on Magento’s eCommerce platform. This PHP-based package brings power and flexibility to catalog and customer management, providing unified administration over multiple storefronts and support for multiple currencies and languages. Hierarchical navigation allows shoppers to sift goods, while rules-based promotion tools and proactive alerts rival the real-time order management capabilities of many commercial products. Magento lacks the performance and breadth of the Apache Open for Business project, which builds in Java-based ERP and CRM features, but is far easier to install and manage.
