Solaris resurgent in European financial community
By user12611852 on Feb 05, 2008
For those who think Solaris is dead and "Linux" will take over the world, a recent survey by Forrester Research (NOT paid for by Sun) points out that Solaris is one of the top three "strategic" OS platforms. This shows the value of communities and openness in the software space. More about this at Jonathan Schwartz blog.
Some interesting quotes include:
Solaris is back on the winner's podium. Sun Solaris has regained its "historical significance" in European financial services.
Linux has lost traction.
Pure J2EE is still strategically very important.
Sun invites you to read the independent Forrester report titled "European Financial Services Architecture Shows Clear Strategic Direction"(January 2008) in which Forrester reports Solaris as one of the top 3 most strategically positioned operating systems in European Financial Services Firms.
