VALUE IS MORE THAN JUST LOW COST OF ENTRY
It's about how much you can accomplish—and how quickly—compared to what you've invested.
Over a three-year period, JBoss EAP would be 50.91% less expensive than WebSphere AS ND.Source: Virtuant Study: JBoss EAP vs. WebSphere: A TCO Study
...We conclude that WebSphere AS ND encourages "lock-in" to a greater extent than does JBoss EAP.
FACT: JBOSS PROVIDES BETTER VALUE THAN WEBSPHERE AND WEBLOGIC
The proprietary IT customer model is more about locking you in than delivering real value. The result? You're stuck paying for the same things over and over.
Not with JBoss® solutions. They quickly pay for themselves in fast return on investment (ROI) and higher productivity. JBoss customers enjoy millions of dollars in benefits every year by migrating from platforms like IBM WebSphere and Oracle WebLogic.
Greater returns. Faster time to market. More projects delivered on time. That's what you get when you switch to JBoss middleware.
JBOSS INCREASES THE VALUE OF YOUR MIDDLEWARE INFRASTRUCTURE
And we can prove it.
An IDC whitepaper sponsored by Red Hat®—"How Red Hat's JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 is Extending Business Value"—helps make the case. IDC studied the business value of adopting JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) for 6 JBoss customers. The results showed that, on average, companies using JBoss EAP save more than $6 million each year versus using traditional, proprietary application servers.
In addition to pure cost savings, the study showed that organizations switching to the open source JBoss enterprise platform from traditional proprietary application servers also realize:
- An average of $3.5 million in additional annual revenue.
- More efficient application development, resulting in the ability to develop 51% more applications per year.
- A 65% reduction in application development infrastructure costs.
- An 89% reduction in costs to manage applications post-deployment.
- 569% ROI generated over a 3-year period with an initial payback in fewer than 6 months after deployment.
