E.piphany Offers Integrated WebSphere, WebLogic
E.6 CRM software will be packaged with IBM's WebSphere and BEA's WebLogic Web server software at no additional cost.In a bid to make its software easier to integrate and buy, E.piphany Inc. will announce Tuesday a packaged integration of its E.6 customer relationship management software with IBMs WebSphere and BEA Systems Inc.s WebLogic Web server software. The Web server software will be added at no additional cost, E.piphany officials said. E.6 is a J2EE (Java 2 Enterprise Edition)-based suite of sales, customer service, marketing and analytics software. E.piphany provides integrated WebLogic or WebSphere in lieu of its own proprietary application server, which it has discontinued.
The goal, company officials in San Mateo, Calif., said, is to lower customers costs of ownership and integration headaches while continuing a strategy of being "aggressively open" to industry standards. E.piphany has no plans to support Microsoft Corp.s .Net platform beyond interoperability, officials said.
