...IBM's Internet Infrastructure Software Tops Morgan Stanley Dean Witter

Morgan Stanley Dean Witter's Annual CIO Outlook Survey cited IBM WebSphere
as the most widely used Internet infrastructure software among

Of the 150 CIOs who participated in the survey, 47 percent said they used
WebSphere in their companies. The percentage of CIOs who use WebSphere
more than doubled that of IBM's nearest competitor in the survey, BEA,

This survey comes on the heels of a December Giga Group report that showed
IBM gaining market share in the application server market while BEA lost
ground. Additionally, a recent Forrester survey showed 54 percent of
those polled chose WebSphere and 14 percent chose BEA.

In the short time since its introduction, WebSphere has:

commercial banks, telecommunications, healthcare and Wall Street brokerage

infrastructure needs - including integrating their key business processes
and conducting high-volume Web transactions.

position, according to Giga Information Group.

· Shown significant revenue growth. WebSphere software revenue has
experienced triple-digit growth on the Unix and Windows NT platforms for
