OASIS the international open standards body, has major news about their new Cloud standards project ‘CAMP’. Read more here. 12 November 2012 – The OASIS international consortium has launched the Cloud Application Management for Platforms (CAMP) Technical Committee, a project to define the interoperability standard for managing applications in Platform as a Service (PaaS) environments.

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 Comments on Oracle-Sun Acquisition

"Today's customers are looking for solutions which provide a high level of interoperability, simplicity, ease-of-use and a fast ROI. Corporate mergers, such as Oracle-Sun, make this virtually impossible. Customers are being forced to mix and match complex, patched together solutions. And they find this a little scary", said Dr. Peter Kürpick, Chief Product Officer and member of the Executive Board, Software AG. "At Software AG we focus on Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), business process management (BPM) and integration and not try to be all things to all people. It makes us one of few horizontal integration solutions in an age where vertically integrated giants are attempting to dominate customers and markets.

Oracle 11g Fusion Middleware LiveBlogging and News Analysis

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 applications? 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...

Software AG Buys Way Into BPM

This guest post comes courtesy of Tony Baer’s OnStrategies blog Who says there are no second acts in life? After having caught its breadth with the webMethods acquisition almost exactly two years ago, Software AG has struck again with an offer to buy roughly half the shares of IDS Scheer from the company’s founders. The offer, worth roughly $320 million, is still subject to regulatory review. Both deals are similar in that they are major, but their impacts will be different. webMethods expanded the Software AG business horizontally, adding critical mass to a new SOA middleware business that it was only beginning to build. Additionally, webMethods was a less mature business with more headroom for growth. By contrast, IDS Scheer simply deepens one of Software AG’s existing businesses: webMethods Business Process Management (BPM). It adds the ARIS process modeling langua... (more)
