Siebel and IBM have announced support for the Siebel 7.7 CRM suite on DB2 Universal Database for Linux, in yet another example of enterprise application support being extended to Linux. Earlier this week, two CRM vendors, SugarCRM and E.piphany, announced Linux support for their CRM applications.

Siebel is also working with IBM to provide support for Web Server and App Server tiers on future versions of Siebel CRM solutions in 2005.

In making the announcement, both IBM and Siebel emphasized their belief that Linux is an enterprise-strength platform. IBM noted in a release about the announcement that "IBM and its ecosystem of business partners around the world recognize the advantages that Linux has to offer, including ease of integration, scalability, low cost and security."

Ed Abbo, Chief Technology Officer, Siebel Systems, added in a statement, "The availability of Siebel Systems' market-leading CRM applications on DB2 Universal Database for Linux provides a powerful, yet low-cost open platform on which companies can build enterprise-class business solutions. Together, Siebel Systems and IBM are accelerating this important initiative to provide our customers with more choice and flexibility as they deploy critical business applications to drive increased customer satisfaction and profitability while lowering operating costs."
