The Forrester Wave™: Information-As-A-Service, Q1 2008

BEA Systems Leads, With IBM, Oracle, And Red Hat Following Closely

    Why Read This Report

    Forrester evaluated leading enterprise information-as-a-service (IaaS) vendors across 94 criteria and found that BEA Systems, IBM, Oracle, and Red Hat have established leadership positions, thanks to their IaaS capabilities, breadth of focus, and strong product and corporate strategy. BEA Systems and Oracle were the only vendors that topped all IaaS use cases. Ipedo, Composite Software, Microsoft, and Endeca Technologies are Strong Performers because their features and functionality are not sufficiently comprehensive to excel at all IaaS use cases, but Microsoft is among the Leaders in two selective use cases. Xcalia still has work ahead to build stronger features and functionality, but for now, it lags behind the Leaders in some key IaaS capabilities.
