Proprietary middleware is expensive, and license costs only continue to rise. That's why progressive enterprises like Priceline.com and Citistreet traded high costs and vendor lock-in for open source and JBoss® Enterprise Application Platform. Learn how you can too.
How does your middleware score?
Ask yourself these questions:
- Do project backlogs still exist despite excessive middleware spending?
- Do high up-front licensing and support costs prevent you from starting new projects?
- Has proprietary middleware solved your problems within an advantageous cost structure?
If you're not happy with your answers, it's time for a change. There's a better way.
Why JBoss Enterprise Middleware is better
Why build your next-generation middleware architecture on the same expensive, proprietary products? Attack your IT project backlog. Switch to JBoss Enterprise Application Platform for:
- More capability, less cost: Delivered via subscription. So you pay for what's most important to you. Service. Software that works.
- No vendor lock-in: The development process is open. The technology is open. There are no secrets, no surprises, no lock-in.
- Award-winning support: Ranked highest in custom satisfaction over Oracle, IBM, and BEA in an independent study 2 years running.
- Performance: Just ask our customers why they trust JBoss Enterprise Application Platform with their mission-critical applications.
- Modular architecture: Robust enough to handle large, complex Java™ EE workloads, yet agile and flexible enough to run lighter ones.
