The alliances are designed to provide businesses standardising their IT environments on component-based solutions a CRM suite featuring integrated sales, marketing, service, and analytic capabilities fully built on J2EE.
In July, E.piphany's expanded its relationship with IBM by committing to optimise its E.6 suite for IBM's entire e-business infrastructure.
CRM implementations have been plagued by the complexity and expense of proprietary architectures, so they are turning to those built on open standards to exploit their existing systems and data to speed implementations, said Phil Fernandez, E.piphany's executive vice president of products and marketing.
"In the past, customers could go to a propriety solution or deal with multiple vendors to deliver this solution. In half of our recent deals in the fourth quarter, customers at least in part chose E.piphany because of our commitment to this J2EE architecture."
E.piphany's E.6 CRM suite integrated with WebSphere or WebLogic is available immediately.
