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...

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. It offers expertise in vertical industries, direct access to vertic... (more)

BPM market Growing Rapidly but still Maturing and changing

Why SOA is implemented by more enterprises than BPM?  SOA is an Architecture, so an enterprise may use an Architecture or not.  Many Enterprises without any architecture, begin their SOA initiative, when SOA was only Hype and buzzword. Other Enterprises followed when it matured. Some realized measurable SOA benefits.  Unfortunately, many of them executed it wrongly, and therefore their SOA benefits were limited or even non-existent.  Managing Business Processes is not an option it is a must. Therefore Enterprises managed their Processes manually or by usage of code embedded in Systems' Business Logic Layer. It is difficult to convince them to change their Process Management practices by implementing BPM. The company's management team may use the slogan: If it is not broken do not fix it.   The significant value of BPM is not Business Process Automation. It is Business Pro... (more)

Achieveing Large Scale In-Memory Computing in the Federal Sector

By Bob Gourley The term “In-Memory Computing” is in growing use among federal technologists. The term refers to the ability to store and process data directly in the main Random Access Memory (RAM) of a computer vice storing the data off into slow devices like hard disks. By using in-memory techniques, incredibly large quantities of data can be understood by a computer all at once and processed quickly, enabling three major benefits: Legacy systems can scale their performance up almost instantly by a relatively minor architecture change, enabling even older capabilities to serve many more users than they were first designed for. It is now possible to rapidly compare new data to all existing data holdings and generate actionable results that can have immediate impact on ongoing missions. This has important benefits to a wide variety of missions that involve a need to... (more)
