NewsFactor Network writes: "All the press that Microsoft has garnered around its .NET initiative has companies like IBM and Novell shifting their own publicity campaigns into overdrive, trying to impress upon businesses that their competing products will serve companies' needs more effectively. IBM seems to have the best chance to convince its customers to go with its product, called WebSphere, analysts told NewsFactor, because its Global Services division has the capacity to offer nearly everything its customers need to work effectively."
