BEA Systems, Inc. has announced that the company remains the leader in the Linux-based Application Server Software Platform (ASSP) market for the third year in a row, according to the Worldwide and North American Application Server Software Platform 2003 Vendor Analysis. A significant component of the company's Liquid Computing vision, standards-based, operating systems like Linux are considered key to developing next-generation application infrastructure designed to fundamentally change the economics of enterprise computing. Linux-based infrastructure is being leveraged by the industry to develop service-oriented environments that can closely align information technology with business processes using a collection of shared services on a network. The Linux-based ASSP market is the fastest growing segment of the ASSP market as measured by software revenue according to IDC. Recognizing this, BEA has focused on helping to make Linux a reliable and low-cost solution for enterprise customers looking for a highly scalable, unified and extensible application infrastructure. As a result, BEA has led the Linux-based ASSP market since IDC began tracking it. The IDC report analyzing the North American and worldwide market for ASSP is based on the IDC 2004 Software Market Forecaster Database, which covers over 85 functional software markets worldwide by multiple operating environment and many geographic dimensions.
