Open Source Invades the Enterprise

Matt Rand at Forbes.com - Open Source Invades the Enterprise:

“Pfizer recently embarked on a $25,000 pilot program, where it set up an open-source LAMP architecture next to BEA’s Weblogic J2EE software. It used each software framework to build an application that pulled data from an Oracle database. What surprised Pfizer’s Martin Brodbeck, the director of architecture for the company’s Global Pharmaceutical Group, was that the LAMP software cut development time dramatically over J2EE.”
