SugarCRM is now delivering on-demand support for Blackberry Smartphone users in the SMB space and new installers for Solaris/OpenSolaris.

As the open source CRM company's annual conference began today in San Jose, Calif., exec announced a partnership with iEnterprises that will give mobile Blackberry users real-time access their Sugar CRM data. The Mobile Edge Express turn-key software service, accessible from the iEnterprise web site and SugarCRM's SugarExchange marketplace, is a quick-and-easy download and offers a simple self service installation and provisioning capability, the company said.

Mobile Edge Express allows cost conscious SMB customers to buy the app without hardware costs, upgrades or licensing fees, the company said. Users can pay for the SaaS on a monthly or yearly basis. SugarCRM and iEnterprises announced thier plans for Mobile Edge for SugarCRM last April.

In addition to that on-demand aplication, the Cupertino, Calif. company announced the availability of new wizards-based stack installers designed to ease the installation of its open source Sugar Community Edition on Sun's Solaris Unix operating system and OpenSolaris open source OS. The easy-to-use interface installs Apache, MySQL, PHP and the Sugar Community Edition.

Sun's CEO Jonathan Schwartz shot over to SugarCon in nearby San Jose this week to offer support for the open source CRM company, especially since the two key announcements -- Solaris and OpenSolaris Support, and installers for the AMP stack -- fall under Sun's control. Sun announced its plans to buy MySQL last month.
