Open Source Applications Running on System i

ZEND/PHP CONFERENCE AND EXPO, San Jose, CA – November 3, 2006 – Zend Technologies presented five open source applications running on System i during their Keynote address which kicked-off the annual Zend/PHP Conference 2006. The applications include:

  • SugarCRM ™ *
  • MediaWiki ™ **
  • Zen Cart ™ ***
  • Mantis ™ ****
  • Joomla ™ *****

To view a demonstration of any of these applications please contact
Jim Dillard.

“Deploying PHP on System i was so easy, it took less time to install than it did to download the code,” commented Ed Kietlinkski, Senior Solution Consultant with Zend.

“We entered into this relationship with Zend to bring the System i and PHP communities together, enabling our customers to quickly adapt to new challenges and opportunities while leveraging their current investments and assets,” said Jim Herring, IBM director of System i products and business operations. “One benefit to our customers is the breadth of the open source PHP application portfolio. The five solutions shown at the conference today demonstrate how easy it is for companies to fully leverage Web innovation for business value.”

Since 2005 Zend and IBM have been working diligently to bring PHP to System i. Zend’s System i offerings include: Zend Core for i5/OS, Zend Studio for i5/OS and Zend.
