Nomura Research Institute, Ltd. (NRI: Tokyo, Japan; Akihisa Fujinuma, President, CEO & COO) has released the April 2007 edition of the “NRI Open Source Software Map*1” that rates open source software (OSS) to serve as the choosing criteria for enterprises in considering adoption of OSS in the future.
In addition to 11 OSS (application servers, SOA middleware(ESB,BPM) projects which were mapped in August last year, 17 new OSS projects such as development frameworks and systems management tools have been included. These OSS projects are mapped using the two axes of “maturity” and “presence” based on data available as of April 2007.
In addition to JBoss Application Server and Apache Tomcat that were highly rated last year, Struts, Spring Framework, Hibernate and Nagios, from among newly surveyed OSS products, have been found to be OSS products that are high-level enough to be used for enterprise information systems in terms of both “maturity” and “presence.”
Furthermore, the following three OSS products are expected to enjoy increased ratings in the future: Ruby On Rails, which is a web application framework featuring high productivity, GlassFish, which is an application server supporting Java EE5*2 and JBoss Seam, which is an application framework.
NRI plans to continue to update and publish the NRI Open Source Software Map in the future, and to expand the number of OSS products subject to rating.
