This is my take - Gartner doesn't sell a lot of research to the appserver vendors.

Seriously, all they are saying is that a 2-tier appserver deployment architecture makes economic sense. Why pay for Oracle when SQLserver will do?

I think this makes some sense. However, the two-tier architecture is more complex than the single centralized tier. I think most large companies would want a single vendor to supply the software for both tiers. Too many headaches otherwise.
