Top 5 Open Source Projektmanagement-Software

Capterra is a Gartner company which offers a platform to support companies to find the right software and rates it depending on different criteria. Now, OpenProject has been awarded among the top 5 of open source project management software. Capterra writes: “only 4.3% of available project management tools made the cut. In other words, it’s more difficult to make our list as a top free PM tool than to gain acceptance into Harvard. Congratulations on this accomplishment!”

So, if you understand free not in the sense of “free beer” but in the sense of “freedom” - the decision for the right project management software is not hard anymore.

OpenProject Community vs Enterprise edition

The OpenProject Community edition is free and does not cost a penny. You can download and install it. The easiest way would be an installation via RPM/Deb Packages or with Docker installation. The Community version includes all project management features and high security standards. If you want to add more powerful Enterprise add-ons, such as the upload of an own logo and the configuration of colors, or add additional security features, such as two-factor authentication, you can upgrade to the Enterprise edition. You will also get maintenance and support based on a SLA. Also, the Enterprise edition is 100% open source. The money we make with the Enterprise edition will go back directly into the development of the software.
