IBM Is A Leader In Application Server Platforms — Except For Its High Costs

The Forrester Wave™ Vendor Summary, Q3 2007

    Why Read This Report

    IBM's current offering scores in our evaluation of application server platforms are strong, reflecting the big portfolio of products included in IBM's platform. But IBM's strategy scores were held down by its high costs, the modest revenue growth that IBM as a whole registered during the four quarters included in this evaluation, and a moderate score for focus. The result: IBM is on the borderline between Leader and Strong Performer in four of the scenarios included the Forrester Wave™ and a Leader in one scenario. The picture of IBM's current offering in our evaluation represents what many customers experience when they work with IBM. IBM has a broad platform portfolio, but its breadth and uneven integration between its products can drive up costs and complexity.
