Each year, InfoWorld's Bossies (Best of Open Source Software awards) recognize the best open source software for business. The InfoWorld Test Center's central mission has always been to identify the most promising and cost-effective products available to IT organizations. Increasingly, those products -- from application development tools to platforms and infrastructure software to CRM and ERP applications -- come from the open source camp.
The Bossies are selected by InfoWorld Test Center editors and reviewers. To nominate your favorite open source project for the 2013 awards, email Test Center Executive Editor Doug Dineley by July 31. In addition to the name of the specific software project you're nominating, please provide links to documentation, downloads, and source code. A brief note (read: a few sentences) on why the software is important and award worthy would be welcome but is not required. The winners will be announced September 9.
