In a Nutshell, openQRM is ...
openQRM is an open source systems management platform that automates both the virtual and physical assets with enterprise data centers. openQRM significantly minimizes downtime for IT infrastructure and business applications, reduces annual management costs for complex data centers, and increases server utilization. In other words, it helps system administrators sleep better. - http://www.ohloh.net/p/3440

We would like to welcome our new Sales Director Candide Bekono

We would like to welcome our new Sales Director Candide Bekono
Candide has been working in Sales-, Marketing- and Project Management for over the past 10 years. He has lead various international projects in agency environments planning and developing sales strategies for renewable energy, advertising, finance as well as hard and software products and services. Candide: I am very much looking forward to my start at openQRM Enterprise. Having worked closely with IT experts for many years, one of their main issues has always been providing comprehensive services and platforms as well as managing increasingly complex business processes and applications with fewer people. Following the simple philosophy that all sides should be happy at the end of the day, I see that openQRM Enterprise gives Admins an incredible and affordable community backed solution at hand to effectively streamline and automate large chunks of their daily work - making them happy at the end of the day. - http://www.openqrm-enterprise.com/company/news/article/we-would-like-to-welcome-our-new-sales-director-candide-bekono/archiv/2014/03/05.html
