Independent software vendors (ISVs) in IBM's Application Enablement Programme will gain access to tools to provide their application hosting services more cheaply.

 

The scheme, which IBM hopes will extend the idea of "software as a service", applies to tier-two ISVs that run their packages on infrastructure at IBM's data centres, and will provide them with a range of new resources free to encourage them to make the investment necessary to rearchitect their applications.

 

Chris Nicoletti, general manager for IBM's e-business hosting services in EMEA, said as of next quarter the vendor would dynamically allocate more system resources to ISVs in line with peaks or troughs in demand and application hosting prices would fall by between ten and 25 per cent. To exploit this functionality most ISVs will need to rewrite their applications.
