For enterprise IT organizations and ISVs, open source software eliminates high up-front license fees, provides transparent access to code, and delivers high-quality capabilities honed by many intelligent minds focusing on a problem. But wholehearted adoption of an open source approach also brings diverse challenges, including highly granular components with disparate versions that must be intergrated and tested, variable component stability, uncertain platform and database compatibility, unknown performance characteristics.

In this session, we will discuss how JBoss Enterprise Middleware helps companies overcome these and many other challenges, though the relationship with the open source community, and enterprise class testing, certification, documentation and support. Enterprise companies will learn how they can experience lower middleware TCO and risk, while allowing developers to devote more time to business application challenges.
