IBM is looking to broaden the reach of its WebSphere Portal. A recent upgrade made the 4-year-old software available for the first time on IBM's zSeries mainframe and iSeries midmarket servers, a move IBM hopes will spur customer interest in deploying portal software on platforms for which it has previously not been widely available.
'Most sales, in terms of volume, have been on Windows,' said Ken Bisconti, IBM's vice president of Workplace, portal and collaboration products. 'This is notable in its expansion of our market coverage.'
IBM offers an Express version of WebSphere Portal aimed at smaller businesses, and that software was already available for iSeries servers. However, IBM's full-strength WebSphere Portal strongly outsells Express, according to Bisconti. 'We have a number of customers who are introduced to the Express offering, but end up purchasing the enterprise version because of the scalability limits,' he said.
