Cloud computing as cure for over-used software services

Are you ready for re-use? Enterprise architects know there is a dual-edged sword to service-oriented architecture. That is: When SOA succeeds and component re-use occurs, popular services can become overtaxed, and performance suffers. That turns out to be one of the places where emerging Cloud computing can help, said an early Cloud pioneer. ... (more)

DataServices World 2008 West: IBM's Malaika to Present on SOA, WOA, Cloud and XML Data

XML end-to-end architectures are a natural follow-on to SOA: XML for the user interface, XML for data interchange, and XML for storage. Universal Services are a set of database operations, including insert, update, delete, and query, that expose stored XML as Web service operations. "These services enable setting up database Web service operations quickly, for example for prototyping," notes Susan Malaika, Senior Technical Staff Member in IBM's Information Management Group, who will be speaking on November 20 at SYS-CON's DataServices World 2008 West, being held in conjunction with the 14th International SOA World Conference & Expo in San Jose, California. "The services then allow users to query and modify XML data stored in the XML column through REST or SOAP, which can serve as a basis for further development of various applications, such as forms or SOA application...

This Magic Moment

This November, I am presenting at SYS-CON's 4th International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo in Santa Clara, CA. I welcome any opportunity to speak about my favorite subject: cloud storage, and how the cloud storage segment is providing a viable roadmap for how to create a profitable cloud computing industry. One year ago, the Mezeo Software team was finalizing plans to emerge from stealth mode. Since that time, the cloud storage market has undergone some significant changes and advancements. We may not have crossed Moore’s proverbial chasm just yet, but the energy in the space is tangible. As an industry, we are very close to a tipping point. In my talk at Cloud Computing Expo, “The Profit Model for Cloud Computing,” I will discuss how the cloud storage space has quickly evolved. It is truly a “magic moment” situation for those who have historically been respons... (more)

TIBCO Takes Social Software to Work

Weblogic at Cloud Expo TIBCO Software will release in 2010 software that lets people search for and then track corporate information by subject matter in a similar way to how they might follow people on Twitter. This is a clear sign that the enterprise software and social software worlds are munging. Get ready to see a lot more. The idea behind the tibbr – the name an obvious play on “Twitter” -- helps people find information related to their particular tasks and jobs quickly and easily by searching for information based on its subject matter, and then subscribing to relevant feeds on those topics, the company said. [Disclosure: TIBCO is a sponsor of BriefingsDirect podcasts.] Lack of information isn’t the main problem for enterprise systems these days, what's really needed is a useful interface and method for getting to the precise needed information quickly and easi...
