Companies depend on the IBM® WebSphere platform to deliver mission-critical Web applications and services and to provide the foundation for Service Oriented Architecture (SOA).

You’ll find insightful discussions of each option and strategy for managing WebSphere, including practical guidance on making the right tradeoffs for your environment.

 

Whether you’re a WebSphere administrator, developer, consultant, support manager, engineer, or architect, this book brings together the information you need to run your WebSphere infrastructure with maximum effectiveness and efficiency.

 

Coverage includes

  • Planning, hiring, training, funding, and building a world-class WebSphere engineering support organization
