We’re thrilled with the recent announcement that two of our partners, Red Hat and Oracle, were confirmed as “Leaders” by Gartner’s Magic Quadrant report for Enterprise Application Servers.
Widely referenced in the technology industry, Gartner’s Magic Quadrant “provides a graphical competitive positioning of four types of technology providers in fast-growing markets: Leaders, Visionaries, Niche Players and Challengers.” Ultimately, the report helps educate about technology providers and their ability to deliver to users today and in the future. Identified as a “Leader” means that RedHat and Oracle are currently executing on their current vision and are positioned well moving forward.
We firmly believe that open source is a fully viable alternative to traditional software products, and the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform in particular has been proven for use in enterprise environments. We’ve been hugely successful in developing and deploying applications for a range of mid-size and enterprise clients on the JBoss EAP platform, and we’re keenly anticipating the arrival of JBoss EAP 6 later this year.
For organizations that have adopted a closed-source strategy, Oracle’s WebLogic Suite is a mature product supporting most technology standards, third-party solutions, in-memory data grids, and mobile devices. We’ve implemented dozens of applications on the WebLogic stack, primarily for larger telecommunications clients.
