Group 1 Software to Integrate with WebSphere Application Server

Joanna Doyle

Marking its first software initiative with IBM , Group 1 Software (Lanham, Md.) has announced a new agreement to offer IBM’s WebSphere Application Server as a component of Group 1’s enterprise software.

Under the new agreement, future releases of Group 1 products will interface to customer Java servlets with Business Object Beans.

“As part of our continuing emphasis on the e-commerce market space, working with IBM enables us to address comprehensively the Java integration of our key products,” says Bob Bowen, CEO of Group 1. “We are excited about teaming up with one of the leading Java environment providers to take further advantage of the rapidly growing e-commerce opportunities for our core functionality.”

While the deal announced last week is the first software-related agreement for the two companies, Group 1 has an existing alliance with IBM as an AS/400 and Netfinitiy server reseller and as a member of PartnerWorld for Developers for AS/400, RS6000 and mainframes.
