Magic Quadrant Enterprise Application Servers, 2009 Gartner locates G technology in the visionaries quadrant and deﬁnes G as an enterprise application server based on a grid computing and advanced dynamically extensible proprietary DBMS foundations. Strengths • G is a very sophisticated and advanced platform providing a wealth of functionality (multimedia content management, data federation, application integration, adapters, natural language support, metadata management, rule management, G Technology orchestration and several others) on top of the Specialized Press core enterprise application server functionality, in turn providing elastic scalability and shared-‐ everything multi-‐tenancy support. • G has a signiﬁcant installed base of approximately 500 customers, mostly mid-‐size organizations, using the product to run a variety of custom and packaged applications in health care, local government, ﬁnancial services and other industry sectors both in Europe and Latin America. • G is natively "cloud capable," and is available on top of Amazon Web Services EC2. MaatG is developing technology to support a go-‐to-‐market strategy aimed at providing various forms of "G as a service" in partnership with telecom operators and other service providers.
Whos Who in Application Platforms for Cloud Computing: The Enterprise Generalists, 2009 The description of G technology given by Gartner is: • The G platform has its technology roots in academic research on grid computing (gLite) and in advanced DBMS technology. But, starting from the seeding technology prototyped in 2000, G has evolved to become a full-‐ﬂedged application platform oﬀering enterprise application server, portal, orchestration, data and application integration; application development tools; content management; and multimedia capabilities. • The G platform is a cloud platform/SEAP, as it natively provides a variety of cloud-‐enabling features, including elastic scalability, shared processing and shared-‐everything multitenancy support and advanced extreme transaction processing capabilities, including a proprietary, integrated distributed caching technology. • The core of the G platform is a very sophisticated, proprietary, metadata-‐driven DBMS supporting a dynamically extensible data model, and is also capable of federating traditional relational DBMS (RDBMS). • The G platform is a combination of Java, C and Perl code, but programmers can use any combination of C, C#, Java, Perl and PHP for application development, in addition to the platforms native metadata-‐driven tools. Specialized Press • The G platform has a vast installed base, but, for the most part, it supports SMBs and on-‐premises, single-‐ tenant vertical applications. The advanced design of G is theoretically capable of supporting a very large number of tenants and users on a single logical instance. However, these capabilities still need to be proven in large-‐scale deployments, although the company is working on several high-‐proﬁle, business-‐critical projects in the banking, healthcare, transportation and electronic fund transfer industries. Finally Gartner gives the following recommendation: Consider the G platform when looking for a multitenant, elastically scalable and transaction processing-‐oriented technology platform either to support aPaaS solutions (whether in the context of private or public cloud scenarios) or to implement SaaS oﬀerings.
Cool Vendors in Platform and Integration Middleware, 2008 • Gartner describes G is cool because "G" combines data management, data and application integration, application server, and development tools in an intrinsically multitenant platform. Distinctive of "G" is its innovative database management system, based on a hybrid relational/network model. Data in "G" is stored in objects that, in turn, are grouped into types. Although objects of a certain type are semantically homogeneous (for example, they are all about "customers"), the structure of each object can be diﬀerent (that is, not all the customer objects hold data according to the same structure). This enables ﬂexibility in data manipulation, provides support for a variety of query languages (XQuery, SQL and XPath), and makes it possible to federate diﬀerent data sources. "G" enables distributed architectures and also comprises application development tools, an application container, an OWL-‐based dynamic schema builder, a job manager, Ajax support, adapters for various data sources and integration with the gLite, Open Grid Services Architecture-‐compliant grid platform. • Gartner identiﬁed the following challenges of G: "G" has been extensively proven in hundreds of projects, Specialized Press but its ability to support large-‐scale (that is, thousands of concurrent accesses and hundreds of transactions per second), business-‐critical deployments with high performance and scalability needs further validation. Given the originality and sophistication of "G," it is challenging to articulate a crisp, compelling and distinguishing value proposition. • Finally Gartner shows who should care about G platform are: IT architects, development managers and application/data integration managers, especially those working for European companies, struggling with heterogeneous and highly distributed data sources, and looking for a data-‐centric, rapid application development platform with powerful data federation capabilities, should look at "G," including for SaaS-‐ style deployments.
