IDC Releases Market Share Information and Forecast for Application Deployment Software Market
When looking specifically at the Linux- and Unix-based application deployment software markets, the most competitive in the marketplace, BEA continued to hold leads in both, but Oracle grew strongly to become a real factor. BEA is especially strong on these platforms in North America. In aggregate, Oracle grew at a rate of three times the market average. IBM continued to hold a wide overall lead in North America and in the aggregate of all other regions primarily because of the pervasiveness of its popular transaction-server and message-oriented middleware.
