(Via Infoworld)A gartner report released last week shows,IBM continued to extend its lead in the overall AIM (application integration and middleware) market capturing a little more than 37 percent of the worldwide market in 2004.Finishing second was BEA Systems with 7.2 percent; Oracle was third with 4.4 percent, and Microsoft fourth with 4.3 percent. Gartner pegged the overall application integration and middleware market to be worth $6.7 billion last year, which is up 5.8 percent over 2003, predicting it will continue to grow at a "slow but positive pace for most segments." The widespread need to bundle this kind of software into other products including mobile and wireless applications, integration suites, and other applications where message-oriented technologies are well-suited will continue to propel the growth. IBM leads in the appserver and integration server marketapce. It is another indication that the market is maturing when midtier companies can start absorbing technologies like composite applications which would help volumes climb higher and prices go lower.
