Sun Middleware Success Stories

As we near the end of our Q4 our sales force in going full bore on closing deals to help continue the great momentum we've built up around our middleware this year (see the FY09 growth numbers in the "MySQL / Infrastructure" row of slide 5 of the Q3 financial slides).  But selling software to customers is not where it ends as each customer is buying the software to help solve a business problem and deliver an ROI and business value for their organization.  That is why it is rewarding to see the success stories our terrific reference team publishes on sun.com.

A sampling of some of the recent published stories includes:

  •  Medavie Blue Cross - Implemented an SOA built with Sun products and technologies including GlassFish ESB, OpenSSO, and NetBeans in order to simplify application development and integration increasing agility and flexibility.  Listen to the podcast to learn more.
  • TravelMuse - Innovative travel and vacation site saved $200K in licensing costs and cut hosting costs by 50% through their use of GlassFish Enterprise Server, MySQL Enterprise, and other Sun software and hardware.  They too generously created a podcast.
  • Pretium Telecom - Using GlassFish Enterprise Server and GlassFish ESB, Pretium replaced its existing SOA infrastructure with an open-source model that provides all of the required functionality in a less complex, more flexible framework accelerating development cycles 50% and cutting TCO 50%.
  • Equifax - Using the full spectrum of software from Sun under a Java Enterprise System subscription, from GlassFish Enterprise Server to the Portal Server to OpenSSO to Identity Manager, Equifax cut costs, increased revenue, and streamlined audits.
  • Bâloise Insurance - Using Identity Manager, Bâloise created an integrated platform for assigning and approving access based on employee business roles gaining transparency into business and IT roles and reducing provisioning time.
This is just a few of the success stories that we have.  Browse the site to see more.

Open Source News

There has been quite a bit of open-source news the past week or so.

First, OpenSSO Express was announced at OSCON last week. This provides support for milestone builds from the OpenSSO community to licensees of Access Manager giving even greater flexibility to organizations looking to take advantage of open-source development and innovation. We think this model can apply to Java CAPS and Open ESB as well so let us know what you think!

Second, we announced an Enterprise LAMP Stack for Solaris and Linux, including the open-sourcing of the core components of our Web Server and Web Proxy offerings under the BSD license.

Last, Jonathan blogged about open-source and LinkedIn's use of MySQL. I particularly liked this paragraph:
"I'm seeing this with nearly every customer I meet, the invisible hand of open source - communities of individuals equally devoted to their employers, and to personal and peer productivity. These communities, within companies as well as across industries, are solving problems without having to involve procurement (while religiously adhering to policies surrounding privacy, intellectual property protection and software licensing). They're delivering unquestionable value."
as well as:
"Most progressive CIO's are trying to embrace this trend rather than fight it, figuring out how they can mandate as little as possible, not as much as possible - selecting only the most critical policies and standards to drive efficiency or compliance."
We are in a new open-source world and it is time to embrace it. You can do so by joining any number of our communities whether it is GlassFish, Open ESB, Mural, OpenSSO, OpenDS, OpenSolaris, or others.
