SugarCon 2010 Kicks-Off in San Francisco
The W-Systems team is on-site at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco for SugarCon, the SugarCRM Users, and Developers Conference. We'll be blogging about the event all week, but here are some big announcements from the first morning's sessions.
Larry Augustin, CEO of SugarCRM kicked things off with the announcement of SugarCRM 6. The new version offers big improvements to the SugarCRM user experience. Sugar 6 looks very "Web 2.0" and takes much greater advantage of web technologies like AJAX to minimize the steps needed to be complete a task. W-Systems has been working with Sugar under a non-disclosure agreement over the last six months to evaluate and offer suggestions for improving version 6. We are excited this new version is now public and ready for official beta release. Larry says version 6 will be generally available sometime this summer, probably in July.
Here are some pictures from the morning keynote sessions.
