TARRYTOWN, N.Y., July 13 /PRNewswire/ — Open-Xchange, the open source alternative to Microsoft Exchange, today said it was named one of CRN Magazine's top 10 emerging software vendors to watch. The list, compiled by the tech journal's editorial staff, recognizes rising companies that are reshaping the information technology industry.

"Inclusion in CRN's list is an example of the impact Open-Xchange is having on the market, especially with SMBs," said Gerald Labie, CEO, Open-Xchange. "Increasingly, SMBs are looking to open source as an alternative to the vendor-first, customer-second solutions offered by proprietary software makers."

The announcement comes on the heals of a significant update to Open-Xchange's open source collaboration software and its previously-announced landmark agreement with 1&1 Internet, the world's largest web hosting company, to provide hosted e-mail and collaboration services to small- and medium-sized businesses.

Open-Xchange was chosen for this top 10 list from a pool of 163 emerging vendors. According to CRN, these emerging tech vendors have far superior technology, more robust margins and uncompromising technical support than their predecessors. The publication claims these emerging vendors are reshaping the information technology industry by beating established vendors in head-to-head product, margin, technical support and field engagement comparisons.
