Red Hat Adds Middleware Services on OpenShift PaaS
Red Hat, Inc., provider of open source solutions, recently outlined the next phase of its strategy for delivering one of the industry’s first comprehensive

distributed middleware  Today’s enterprise applications are distributed across disparate infrastructures and integrate both complex processes and numerous data sources, requiring easier and more nimble integration, and a more unified approach to higher-level services than what has traditionally been available. The next phase of Red Hat's PaaS strategy focuses on the delivery of key additional Red Hat JBoss Middleware technologies in the cloud, as services on OpenShift, including integration capabilities, BPM, and mobile push

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Radio frequency identification (RFID) criteria cover tags and storage devices, readers, wireless hubs and servers, and the middleware necessary for evaluating an RFID system deployment. RFID systems are used in different situations that require the tracking of unique items. RFID tags, in the context of enterprise resource planning and supply chain management, make items visible from manufacturing through distribution. RFID tags may be used to carry basic information such as an address, to more complex information used at different stages of an assembly line.

Hewlett Packard Makes Multiple Moves in Middleware


In recent days, Hewlett Packard has announced agreements for strategic alliances, technology licensing, and/or joint product development of middleware products with TIBCO Software, IONA Technologies, and webMethods. Industry rumors indicate that HP is trying to acquire an EAI vendor to complete its push towards a complete application server product. Who will it be?

It is clear that Hewlett Packard will continue to make strategic moves in the area of application integration, and companies evaluating application integration technology should include HP on a long list of vendors to be considered.

Enterprise Application Integration - the Latest Trend in Getting Value from Data


Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) is one of the hot-button issues in IT for the Year 2000. Information Week Research's survey of 300 technology managers showed nearly 75% of respondents said EAI is a planned project for their IT departments in the coming year. According to a survey conducted by Bank Boston, the market for EAI is expected to be $50 Billion USD by 2001. However, successful EAI requires a careful combination of a middleware framework, distributed object technologies, and custom consulting.

Many vendors have evolved out of the middleware space, and some are coming from the Extract/Transform/Load space. It remains to be seen what approach will provide the most value for a new EAI product. Many of these products are refashioned middleware tools. Vendors are attempting out of the box solutions, but there is immense complexity involved in integrating applications, particularly extended supply chain, e-commerce, Read More

Service-oriented Architecture-Savior or Nemesis?


Managed well, service-oriented architecture (SOA) offers a tremendous opportunity to make positive changes and lay a foundation that will allow IT to become responsive and cost-effective. But SOA is also a potential minefield: hype is raising expectations beyond reality in an environment that is already stressed. In fact, managed poorly, SOA can be an expensive and spectacular failure.

Enterprise Application Integration - Where Is It Now (And What Is It Now)? Part 1: What Is It Now?


Since January 2000 when TEC last addressed the trends in Enterprise Application, there have been massive changes in the overall direction of Application Integration in general and EAI in particular.

The topology of this type of application can be split into two parts; the first is the middleware that connects the disparate data sources, the second is the business logic that provides a unified view of the data. Given the complexity of this solution, consulting is required to integrate all the pieces, as there is no out of the box solution that can provide plug-and-play integration.

Taming the SOA Beast - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog topic introduced the notion of how complex and tricky it can be to manage and govern enterprise applications' service oriented architecture (SOA). That blog post also tackled Progress Software’s recent acquisition of Mindreef in order to round out its SOA governance solution for distributed information technology (IT) environments. Mindreef joined the Progress Actional SOA

It remains to be seen how the impending acquisition of ClearApp and its planned rolling into Oracle EM will help in this regard. In addition to not limiting Read More
