The FIPER Express package will include bundled IBM middleware that will eliminate the need for organizations to separately install and configure an application server and database. IBM's Express Runtime package includes IBM WebSphere(R) Application Server Express and IBM DB2(R) Universal Database(TM) Express Edition. Benefits of the integrated solution include lower cost and flexible pricing, automatic configuration and greatly simplified installation and maintenance.
"The FIPER Express package represents a new option for our existing customer base as well as a new mid-market opportunity for Engineous," said J.P. Evans, Vice President of Marketing and Product Development for Engineous. "We are proud to offer a fully functional enterprise product for our customers that is still incredibly easy to install, deploy and maintain."
"By integrating FIPER Express with IBM's Express Runtime product, Engineous will deliver a simplified, cost competitive product that will improve the customer experience for midmarket customers," said Chris Wicher, vice president of midmarket solutions, IBM.
Engineous will launch the Express package at their 2007 International Symposium, March 12th - 14th at the WALT DISNEY WORLD(R) Hilton in Orlando, FLA. The event, co-sponsored by IBM, is expected to draw over 200 industry experts, analysts, thought leaders and software vendors. FIPER Express is planned to be released for general availability in April 2007.
