Coming from a third party analyst firm this must mean something to the market.
For us in IBM, this vindicates and validates the stance and strategy taken by our leadership in evolving the IBM WebSphere Portal product in a direction that is truly helpful to a myriad of customers across industries and geographies.
We are about to release the latest version which takes the whole Portal product to a different level altogether.
Stay tuned for an important announcement.
