INTENTIA has released a Java version of its collaborative enterprise solution, Movex, to run on Linux, which will create hardware independence and reduced the cost of IT ownership for companies.
Linux enabled Java provides a completely open solution.
Intentia will standardise its enterprise solution on new partner IBM's middleware and, initially, Linux will be developed to run on IBM's eServer pSeries servers.
Intentia expects demand for Linux to increase. According to the IT analyst, the mid-sized market is growing quickly and 45% of companies are already using or experimenting with Linux.
Linux gives companies a wide choice because it runs on many hardware platforms and is flexible, allowing companies to embrace new technologies without fear of obsolescence.
