Liferay

Liferay is an Enterprise Content Management System focused on corporations. It is a direct competitor for SharePoint (by Microsoft). I believe that Liferay is best suited for a corporate portal building.

SugarCRM

SugarCRM is a leader Open Source CRM solution.

Being one of the most successful pioneers in Commercial Open Source, SugarCRM is still very fast developing OSS with plenty of features, provided by a vast army of extensions. One can built a full ERP solution based on SugarCRM, using proper extensions. Though it would be a quite strange approach to implement an ERP system.

Kettle Pentaho data integration

Kettle is a data integration module from the Pentaho BI commercial Open Source product. It has an pretty good Eclipse-based intuitive interface. I think it's a very good choice for your ETL tasks unless you need third party system integration. Kettle has just a few plugins for this. The community version documentation is not as good as with competitors, but it's a common policy of Pentaho. The definite plus of the product is a tight integration with the other Pentaho packages.

Jitterbit

This is an excellent peace of software with plenty of useful features. Jitterbit is a relatively easy-to-start tool and has a "no-code" development intuitive interface.

Apatar

This product the most easy to start ETL Open Source product. It has a good intuitive interface. One should also mention its advanced automated business software connectors. Apatar is written in Java by a young company from Belarus. At the time of product evaluation (a year ago) I found Apatar to be really slow on relatively big data volumes (>100 000 records) when then SugarCRM connector was involved.

Talend

In my opinion, it is the best Open Source ETL package available. Based on Eclipse, it generates both Java and Perl ETL scripts, which can be used as Web services as well as run from a command line. The product has a really comprehensive set of components including popular business software connectors. Unfortunately, a community version is missing some of very attractive features like business rules components and check points, which have been newly introduced in a last version of the commercial Talend Integration Suite. But as a whole this is a very solid and useful package even in a free version. However, the Talend is not as easy to start with due to non-intuitive interface. But a lot of examples and tutorials solves this problem.

Orchestra

Orchestra is another BPEL-based BPMS. It looks like a Bonita's less successive sister. This is the kind of product you have to make an effort to give a try.

Process Maker

This is a true Open Source LAMP-based very ease-to-start BPM package. Being targeted for small and medium business, the ProcessMaker is intuitive, simple and does not require many computer resources. It has several usefull connectors to other enterprise management software products such as OpenBravo and KnowledgeTree. The site has extensive documentation and YouTube video tutorials. But if you, for some reason, need to follow BPM standards such as BPMN, BPEL, xPDL, this is not your choice.

Bonita

"An intuitive and powerful solution to build process based applications for optimum cost." This is a truly neat BPMS with AJAX interface, XPDL-based (which is BPEL alternative). Being an already ready-to-use product, it is currently in a very active development phase. It does not include BAM or BRE at the moment, but has a lot of connectors to other software.

Intalio BPMS

This is an Open Source BPMS with almost all bells and whistles available. Intalio pretends to be a leader among the Open Source BPMS. The Community version is limited to a Designer and a BPEL server (no BAM, BRE). Intalio provides a true zero-code interface, but still requires advanced skills to use it effectively. Most problems can be solved, but to solve them fast you have to either buy commercial version or find Intalio GURU. Just ask. :)
