Exploring IBM e-Business Software

Book description:
If you need to stay current with IBM's wide-ranging e-business software tools, this book (and the companion "members-only" Web site) is for you. Exploring IBM e-Business Software tells you everything you need to know to evaluate, select, integrate and manage IBM's e-business software products in small, medium or large business environments.

This book provides a detailed look at IBM's overall e-business architecture and how the various IBM software products fit into the e-business structure. Here you will find information on key IBM e-business platforms, development tools, application server software, network security solutions, systems management software and more.
