ISELIN, N.J., Feb. 14, 2007 — EnterpriseDB, maker of the world’s most affordable enterprise-class database, announced today that it has joined other leading open source companies to establish a non-profit industry organization called the Open Solutions Alliance (OSA). The mission of the OSA is to promote enterprise adoption of open source-based business solutions. Together, the organization’s member companies will work to improve interoperability among open source-based software products, to align open source communities with the OSA’s goals of open source interoperability and innovation, and to conduct joint marketing programs to promote enterprise awareness of open source-based business solutions.

The following ten companies have joined the organization as founding members: Adaptive Planning, Centric CRM, CollabNet, EnterpriseDB, Hyperic, JasperSoft, Openbravo, SourceForge.net®, SpikeSource, and Talend.
