Download Public-sector IT organizations are under intense pressure to do more with less. Diminished tax revenues and powerful political imperatives are putting the squeeze on budgets. Yet, at the same time, legislated mandates and the rising expectations of hyper-connected constituencies are relentlessly adding to IT's to-do list.

This white paper explains how public-sector IT executives can address this challenge and transform the economics of IT by upgrading to Red Hat's JBoss Enterprise Middleware. It highlights three points of particular interest to IT decision-makers:

JBoss is an enterprise-class solution that includes all the functionality necessary for developing, deploying, integrating and managing feature-rich applications and services both on premises and in the cloud. Unlike proprietary middleware that forces customers to buy into an end-to-end technology stack and/or to buy products that they don't really need, JBoss gives IT organizations the freedom to choose the hardware, virtualization and operating systems that best fit their needs. According to independent research, IT organizations switching to JBoss on average reap an ROI of 569% over a three-year period and achieve payback of their initial investment less than six months after deployment.

For these reasons and others, public-sector IT decision-makers should strongly consider adopting Red Hat's JBoss Enterprise as their strategic middleware platform.
