According to the Gartner report, "All Software Markets, Worldwide, 2013"  report 1 names IBM as the leader in application infrastructure and middleware software with 30 percent market share, nearly double that of its closest competitor. The worldwide application infrastructure and middleware software market grew 5.6 percent to $21.5 billion, according to Gartner."We believe the latest Gartner report underscores IBM's ongoing commitment to delivering unmatched capabilities that help our clients transform their businesses for long term value," said Steve Mills, senior vice president and group executive, IBM Software & Systems. "We feel today's news further demonstrates the continued success of our strategy that serves as a catalyst to helping transform the industry's most pressing business and societal challenges."   Within the application infrastructure and middleware portfolio, IBM was once again named the number one vendor in Business Process Management Suite (BPMS) software with 29 percent share, more than triple that of its closest competitor. BPMS software helps improve business growth and agility, including enabling employees to work together using mobile technology. Gartner also reported that IBM remains number one in other noteworthy segments such as Message Oriented Middleware, a key enabler for mobile computing, with 67 percent share, almost 10 times its closest competitor. IBM leads Transaction Processing Middleware, which supports mobile and cloud-based commerce. IBM leads in eight out of the 11 application infrastructure and middleware markets.  Based on IBM client feedback, there is a demand for organizations to link together Big Data, mobile, cloud and social computing technologies into core enterprise software systems. IBM is also the leader in Business-to-Business (B2B) Middleware, which drives better collaboration among partners and clients, and Managed File Transfer Suites, a new segment tracked in this report, for secure, reliable delivery of data between people, process and systems.
