We discuss experiences in extending an open source CRM application to develop a new server-based mobile business application. Combining the application code reuse with incremental development process allowed successful development of a pilot application in a tight schedule. In particular, it enabled a quick start for customer-driven development, diminished risks related to the baseline application itself, and provided the flexibility needed in experimental pilot development.
