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... (more)
Java is the new SQL
We're on a code level orange this morning as buzz on the networks is up.
Despite Oracle's news embargo, we're already picking up chatter that one of
the big ticket items from the Oracle Fusion Middleware launch is Tera-scale
Java Object cacheing.
This is a great technology trend and great thinking.
While a few startup companies have attacked the so-called "Complex Event
Processing" space (CEP), they have done so using esoteric APIs such as SQL
query-like APIs for example StreamBase. This is an early-adopter
(read:sucker) approach because who wants to build completely new
There's a clear answer to that rhetorical question: very few do. To see
Coral8 be swallowed up by Aleri and other CEP vendors struggling out there,
it's clear that only the edgy applications such as fraud and intrusion
detection, networked battlefield, casino gami... (more)

In a previous post I discussed Business Process Management (BPM) evolution
as reflected by an Ovum report.
Recently I read new Gartner BPM Magic Quadrant. The Magic Quadrant is titled
IBPMS Magic Quadrant.
If you compare it to previous Gartner BPMS Magic Quadrants (you should not
compare them), you will find a totally different picture.
Only three Leaders in the IBPMS Magic Quadrant, namely: IBM, PegaSystems and
Appian. No Challengers and a lot of Visionaries I know (Oracle, Software AG,
Tibco, Vitria) and two Visionaries I never heard of (Bosch Software
Previous BPMS Magic Quadrant includes many Leaders, many Challengers as well
as many Visionaries.
The pattern of few Leaders, No Challengers and many Visionaries is typical to
Gartner explains it as a new generation of BPMS tools.
What differentiate IBPMS from BPMS?

Last October I published a post that identified the features that both JBoss
Data Grid and Oracle Coherence provide (link). My goal was to establish a
baseline for the features that a data grid should provide. It was not to
state that one data grid was better than the other. Little did I know an
Oracle employee would respond by attacking Red Hat, its engineers, and
It is fear? Is it hostility? I don’t know.
I have engaged in discussions with competitors before. Roman and I engaged in
a competitive discussion in response to one of my posts comparing IBM
WebSphere and JBoss EAP (link). However, we both conducted ourselves in a
professional manner. I’ve engaged in competitive discussions with Spring
evangelists, but we focused on the technology.
I always enjoy reading the discussions between Cameron, Nikita, and Nati on
the TheServerSide. I find their discussi... (more)
