I’ve been in several meetings recently that have hit on the topic of Data.gov.  Data.gov will become a repository for all the information the government collects, and that information will be in turn available to anyone who needs it.   Pretty positive move, if you ask me.   However, the existing data-as-a-service providers that traffic in government data could find that they are soon suffering from relevancy problems.  The core issue is that many existing data-as-a-service players make their living from publishing reconstituted, and cleansed, government data that they charge for.    The rise of Data.gov will mean the commoditization of this information, which will be accessible, both through visual interfaces, and using APIs (Web services), if I understand the government’s vision here.  Thus, overnight Data.gov could become the mother of all data-as-a-service sites, p...

SOA Pattern of the Week (#3): Domain Inventory

Enterprise-wide harmonization is a desirable and ideal target state that fully supports pretty much everything SOA and service-orientation stand for. For those that have achieved such a state, bless your standardized hearts. You have accomplished something that has eluded many others. However, not attaining this state does not mean you cannot successfully adopt SOA. In some circles it has become common to view an SOA initiative as an all-or-nothing proposition that demands an uncompromising commitment to an enterprise-wide transformation effort. For those that subscribe to this view, it can inspire visions of architects choking at the thought of having to comply to global data models, IT managers losing sleep over having to give up authority over their departments, and rebellious developers being rounded up by the standards police (equipped with industry-standard rio...

Software AG To Buy IDS Scheer

With 47.68% of the company already pledged to it by its two founders, Software AG says it intends to tender for the rest of German-based IDS Scheer AG and create a global vendor of infrastructure software and Business Process Management (BPM) that has more than 6,000 employees and upwards of $1.4 billion in sales. It is offering roughly $21 (€15) in cash a share or close to $675 million, a 39% premium that seems to be regarded as a depressed price. Apparently the 25-year-old IDS has been at a loss to boost profitability. Software AG says it’s already signed a deal with IDS co-founders August-Wilhelm Scheer and Alexander Pocsay for their 15.3 million shares. IDS has skills in analyzing and mapping business processes, a strong partner network, a large service presence and approximately 7,500 customers.

API Management for a Digital World | @CloudExpo #DevOps #Microservices

The rise of the modern API Ever since the dawn of the Internet, people have struggled with how to get one computer to talk to another. Early business systems had no provision for such interactions. They were entirely closed— worlds unto themselves. As enterprises set up early networks, the question of how to get applications to interact with each other became a pressing business concern, and led to the introduction of Remote Procedure Calls (RPCs). A client computer might directly interact with the program running on a server or host by calling procedures (or subroutines, methods, etc.) over the network. As long as every host system had its own proprietary architecture, operating system and programming environments, however, such RPCs were rarely practical. As those systems matured, a level of standardization became more commonplace, and the Application Programming I... (more)
