Sun Counters Rising Middleware Prices with Special SOA Offer
By ericapereira on Aug 20, 2008
Today, Sun is announcing a new special offer for businesses considering to extend or buy new licenses for their middleware environment. The special offer will help new customers easily adopt Sun's Java CAPS service oriented architecture platform.
1) More and more companies are reevaluating their SOA platforms as they face big price increases by vendors like Oracle as reported by The Register and ChannelWeb, uncertainty over product lifecycles from former vendors like BEA, and tighter IT budgets.
2) Sun's Java CAPS offers organizations a lower cost, open source platform for developing and deploying middleware software.
The new offer includes:
- Complimentary WebLogic adapters that allow customers to continue running their existing infrastructure while migrating away from vendor lock-in
- Guaranteed price lock-in for the suite for the next 12 months
- Free 5-day workshop with Sun's SOA architects to help select ideal SOA projects for the first 20 qualified customers who sign up
With over 2,000 customers, such as Carrefour, Medavie Blue Cross and Travelers, Sun recently launched Java CAPS 6, the next-generation of its SOA and business integration suite, providing IT managers with ESB, event processing, business process management, and master data management capabilities, as well as support for GlassFish and NetBeans (IDE) software.
