Open Source does not mean Customization Heaven..

Unless you are doing it wrong.

And sadly I`m seeing more and more people doing it wrong.
To a lot of people Open Source means that they have a piece of software that does almost what they want and which they can modify to their best wishes and use internally.

So they fork locally,, they don't redistribute their code , but they aren't contributing their changes back upstream, chances are these changes wouldn't be accepted upstream anyhow as they are really customizing the code for their specific cases. At first sight this doesn't look so bad , at second sight ..

When weeks or months later the upstream project releases an urgent security fix, the local fork has deviated soo much that it can't upgrade anymore and stays with an insecure version.
Often it's worse.. a feature that could have been accepted upstream has been implemented slightly different in the local fork, the result being that newer features depending …

Analyzing Opportunities in SugarCRM

Since we released our first Beta, we have been working on various examples to demonstrate the capabilities and benefits of a resource oriented approach to data integration.

One of the examples we have been working on is a data mart for SugarCRM opportunity analysis. We have now published that example on our content download site, packages.snaplogic.org , where you can download it, and try it out. (You will also need a SnapLogic server installation, to run the pipelines.)

The general idea behind data marts is simple – they are subject specific alternatives to a full blown data warehouse. The primary benefits of using a separate database to analyze an operational system are the ability to look at a snapshot of the constantly changing data, and the offloading of the queries to a separate database which is optimized for analysis using a star schema instead of a normalized …
