Germany's Green Party Selects Open-Xchange for Advanced Open Source Collaboration

Germany's Green Party Selects Open-Xchange for Advanced Open Source Collaboration

TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Open-Xchange Inc., the maker of the world's leading open-source alternative to Microsoft Exchange, announced today that Germany's Green Party has selected Open-Xchange Server 5 for e-mail, contacts and calendaring for its Berlin headquarters.

Open-Xchange Inc. is the leading vendor of open source collaboration software. Its flagship product, Open-Xchange Server (OX), provides the features and functionality of asynchronous collaboration software: e-mail, calendar, contacts, projects, tasks, and document sharing and interoperates with popular 'rich' clients such as Microsoft Outlook and KDE Kontact and most web browsers.

The German Green Party was formed in the late 1970s. In 1980, the party was founded on a federal level as "Die Grunen" in West Germany. It is the oldest and thus far the most politically successful of the world's many green parties. In 1989 and 1990, numerous civil rights groups in East Germany combined to form "Bundnis 90," which merged with "Die Grunen" in 1993. Bundnis 90/Die Grunen were part of the national coalition government between 1998 and October 2005.

"With Open-Xchange Server we get exactly the functionality we need, without abandoning open standards -- and this for an attractive price," said Herbert Peters, CIO of the Green headquarters in Berlin.
