SourceForge is pleased to announce our new Enterprise Directory—a sub-section of our site focused specifically on Enterprise projects. These are the projects that are geared specifically for use within a company. This might include areas such as project management, office suites, or customer relationship management (CRM) software. Often, software in this category is backed by a company, but this isn’t always the case, nor is it a requirement for inclusion in the directory.

The SourceForge Enterprise Directory is the authoritative destination for researching and downloading Enterprise-Ready projects. It allows for rich community interaction on open source titles through the new reviews and ratings system, and it enables direct reach to the developers of these titles.

In this release, we have enriched our Project Summary Page with new compelling content, like a larger project description, a richer list of project features, a resource center, comparison charts, and more. We have also redesigned the Project Summary Page for these projects, making it intuitive and interactive. You’ll be able to find in-depth reviews, training partners, books, and events featuring these projects, to make it easier to choose the right products for your company.

The changes will appear only on select Enterprise-Ready projects such as Alfresco Content Management and Liferay Portal. However, this is a beta release and we are constantly focused on increasing the numbers of projects in this select list, based on your feedback. If you have a project that is Enterprise Ready, and it’s not listed in the Enterprise Vertical, please get in touch.

We always love your feedback. Check it out and let us know what you think!

Hi Rich! Thanks for the announcement. I had a user on a Reddit forum ask about "their criteria are for being classed as 'enterprise-ready.'" Are there any details about this that we can share?
