Data.gov Will Redefine Data-as-a-Service

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...

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...

BPMS Next Generation: IBPMS

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 Innovations, Whitestein).  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 immature markets. Gartner explains it as a new generation of BPMS tools. What differentiate IBPMS from BPMS? IBPMS too...

The Attack of Oracle Guest

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 myself. 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)
