Middleware battle stays hot

By Wendy Sanacore
Oracle and IBM have been at it regarding who has the better Middleware solution…IBM WebSphere or Oracle Database?
Just as recently as last week, IBM released claims that “businesses using IBM WebSphere middleware on Power 7 hardware can get the lowest cost for performance in the industry.” In addition, IBM claims that it has “proven 76 percent higher performance than Oracle.”
IBM has even launched a new website proclaiming that they are better than Oracle and even sending some jabs in Oracle’s direction.
But there’s more to this story apparently…
In September 2009, the Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC) fined Oracle over an advertisement Oracle placed in the Wall Street Journal, which claimed that systems using Oracle hardware and software ran faster than systems using IBM, based on TPC benchmarks. However, Oracle did not have the TPC results to support the claim at the time, and TPC ordered Oracle to pull the ads.
With the ongoing battle, it’s important to note that both IBM and Oracle are major players and therefore in strong competition in the middleware industry. So tell me, which middleware do you use? Oracle or IBM?
