Companies have overspent on application server technology solutions by $1 billion since 1998, Gartner Group has revealed. The research group is also anticipating a further $2 billion to be wasted on the solutions by 2003.

Gartner Group issued a warning to companies advising them to avoid the hype and confusion and spend wisely. The group also recommended companies check their technology inventory for existing capability or free technology.

The group is also predicting that by 2003 at least 70% of all new applications will be deployed using high-end application servers.

“The application server vendors are encouraging customers to purchase higher-end technology that they just don’t need,” said David Smith, Gartner’s VP and research director. “It’s like buying gourmet food to feed kids at summer camp. It’s just not necessary.”
