SugarCRM is the world's leading provider of commercial open source CRM software, available in both an On-Demand and On-Premise version and comes with a GPLv3 license. What most people don't realize is that SugarCRM is also a very extensible and easy to use open source business application platform, enabling you to automate and manage your organization's processes with ease, building upon a powerful application framework tailor made for business applications. In this talk we'll explore the platform and what all it provides, and show how easy it is to customize and build upon it from the GUI as well as through writing PHP code.
