JBoss and eXo Portal Platforms: Similar, Yet Different

Competitors and partners, eXo and JBoss have both announced their new Portal offerings based on their collaborative project GateIn. While JBoss had released Enterprise Portal Platform (EPP 5) a while back, eXo released eXo Platform 3.0 this week.

These two new products (don't get influenced by their high version numbers) both employ the GateIn framework under the covers, and are functionally and architecturally similar. However, there are some very important differences between the two offerings.

We examine these similarities and differences in our latest advisory briefing, "JBoss and eXo Portal Platforms: Similar, Yet Different." 

Here's the table of contents for the 5-page advisory paper:

  • Key Takeaways

How did our 2017 predictions fare?

Like every analyst firm RSG makes annual predictions, but uniquely in the industry, we go back each year to evaluate our own prescience.

There is no such thing as a DXP

I don't know any enterprise customer that wants — or believes it remotely possible — to obtain all those services from a single vendor. No, this is a vendor fantasy, getting peddled by analyst shills.
