What's Ahead for Users on the Enterprise Infrastructure Battlefront?


The battle between Oracle, Microsoft, SAP, and IBM goes far beyond applications -- it goes right into the technology stack or the enterprise infrastructure. As a result, these vendors are drilling down deeper to compete with each other.

it infrastructure roadmap  based on industry standards. It is a framework that should enable enterprises to evolve into on-demand businesses that integrate data and applications with customers, partners, and suppliers (for more information, see Understanding SOA, Web Services, BPM, BPEL, and More ). As a result, SOMA aims at mapping a corporation's underlying applications and infrastructure with business processes related to a particular area, such as retail banking in a financial institution.

The Future of SOA-based Applications and Infrastructure


The ultimate winner in the SOA market will have to provide industry-specific solutions solving essential problems that others cannot. Focus must move away from technology lock-in and vendor dependency, to best solutions for customers, even if it means customers can use competitor products.

While SOA and Web services may make integration easier through some imposed interoperability, they will not eliminate the need for application integration via adapters, connectors, or other items, since they are not any kind of panacea, nor are they a replacement for event-driven architectures (EDA). Also, although they may provide new business opportunities and create some dynamism and Read More

SOA-based Applications and Infrastructure--The Next Frontier?


Leading enterprise applications vendors believe it is crucial to quickly complete the transition to a service oriented architecture (SOA) from monolithic client/server architectures. For the "Big Few" the "stack" race, including applications, databases, application server and middleware, has intensified.

NetWeaver will thereby evolve from a mere technical application integration platform to a business-oriented process integration platform, referred to as composition platform or business process platform (BPP). In other words, SAP is continuing to change SAP NetWeaver into a BPP that will eventually provide a set of ready-to-use enterprise Read More

One Vendor's Exploit of Marrying Infrastructure with Selling and Fulfillment Applications


For many manufacturers, distributors and retailers with a mishmash of disparate back-office business applications, Sterling Commerce, a traditional integration and communication provider, has recently unveiled a package designed to automate web-based commerce all the way from order capture to fulfillment and payment, as a result of bringing together a few prudent acquisitions over the last three years.

While all its acquisitions were thoroughbred SCM applications providers, Sterling Commerce had long been an infrastructure supplier offering integration, EDI, and GDS solutions. This in itself may be problematic for some prospects—especially those suffering from FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) courtesy of Sterling's competitors. Although EDI and integration are integral to supply Read More

Virtual Infrastructure Storage and Pillar Data Systems


The exploding popularity of VMware’s server virtualization has created a corresponding demand for shared storage. However, traditional storage arrays, burdened by a legacy of addressing physical infrastructure requirements, fail to optimize the unique storage requirements of a virtual infrastructure. Find out about one storage array that meets the requirements of a next-generation virtual infrastructure storage system.

IT Infrastructure Trends in Banking


In the current regulatory environment, banks are facing two levels of challenges. While they are under pressure to expand beyond home territories, they also face stifling regulatory constraints. These restrictions are forcing banks to maximize on every capital expenditure they make. Such financial and regulatory reforms, in the face of the economic slowdown, have positive effects on quality assurance, governance and data management. But it also forces banks to hold capital that they would otherwise invest. This environment has made it vital for banks to sharpen their analytical and forecasting capabilities. Find out how the burden of regulation, expansion, cost optimization, and business transformation can be shared by an expert partner to foster an environment for growth.

Optimizing Server Infrastructure through OS Portability


Data centers are complex mixtures of legacy platforms, hardware, operating systems (OS), data, and applications. They are inflexible, costly, and difficult to manage, so instead of optimizing the current OS, users are adding new ones. By using OS Portability and streaming servers across physical or virtual infrastructures over the network, users better utilize their data centers.

Classification of Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) Tools


Data centers today lack a formal system for classifying infrastructure management tools. As a result, confusion exists regarding which management systems are necessary and which are optional for secure and efficient data center operation. This paper divides the realm of data center management tools into four distinct subsets and compares the primary and secondary functions of key subsystems within these subsets. With a classification system in place, data center professionals can begin to determine which physical infrastructure management tools they need—and don’t need—to operate their data centers.
