Every year, SD Times compiles its list of the companies, organizations and individuals that most broadly "set the agenda" for software development managers, developers and the industry through leadership and innovation during the past calendar year in the highly-regarded SD Times 100. Companies, projects and individuals are initially nominated by BZ Media editors, and by a group of esteemed writers, conference faculty and analysts. Ultimately, the nominees are judged by SD Times’ editors, who then compile the final list of top innovators and leaders across multiple software industry areas.

We’re proud to announce that Red Hat was named to the 2008 SD Times 100 for Application Server leadership with our JBoss Enterprise Application Platform. As SD Times noted, "The application server is becoming more versatile every day…. But the air continued to be sucked out of the application server market by Red Hat’s trailblazing JBoss Middleware group."

In this month’s issue of SD Times, you can read our winner’s profile to find out more about why JBoss Enterprise Middleare is consistently ranked high in quality and value, due to the enterprise open source model that couples the thriving JBoss.org community with enterprise-class support.
