BEA, IBM, Microsoft, SAP, Sun Submit New Spec
BEA Systems, Inc., IBM Corp., Microsoft Corp., SAP AG, and Sun Microsystems, Inc., have submitted the latest version of a key Web services specification, WS-Addressing, to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as input into the standardization process.

WS-Addressing helps enable organizations to build reliable and interoperable Web services applications by defining a standard mechanism for identifying and exchanging Web services messages between multiple end points.

The joint submission of WS-Addressing represents a milestone in the collaboration among BEA, IBM, Microsoft, SAP, and Sun to further advance Web services technology. Backed by significant industry support, the submission of WS-Addressing is also part of a longer-term effort to provide a standards-based foundation for the development of secure, transacted, asynchronous, and reliable Web services.

WS-Addressing is designed to underlie other specifications, such as WS-ReliableMessaging, WS-Federation and WS-AtomicTransaction, providing a consistent, interoperable, and standards-based mechanism for Web services addressing.

WebLogic Platform 8.1 Chosen as SOA Infrastructure of Choice
(San Jose, CA) - BEA Systems, Inc., closed several significant customer deals in the fiscal quarter ended July 31, 2004, as customers in major market sectors chose BEA WebLogic Platform 8.1 as a trusted foundation for both service-oriented architecture (SOA) and Linux-based enterprise applications.

BEA sees many large enterprise customers implementing SOA to help reduce IT overhead, facilitate smart workflows and timely information exchange, and accelerate the speed at which change could be implemented. In addition, many customers began deploying enterprise applications on the Linux operating system to take advantage of potentially lower hardware and software costs.

Among the most common solutions being built on BEA are employee self-service and customer self-service portals. These portals can provide personalized views into data and processes to make users as efficient as possible, comprehensive one-stop access to information and functionality, and the adaptability to facilitate rapid change to accommodate the changes in business.

BEA Sets New Price/Performance Record Validating the Best TCO
(San Jose, CA) - BEA Systems, Inc., has announced two new sets of results in SPECjAppServer2002, the industry-standard benchmark that evaluates the performance and cost of Java application servers. The BEA results set a new record for the lowest price-to-performance ratio in the MultipleNode category of the benchmark, reinforcing to customers that BEA can offer not only the highest performance, but can also provide the lowest cost. According to the benchmark, BEA outperformed IBM at less than half the cost, and surpassed Oracle performance at about one fifth the cost of their respective highest throughput results in this category. The results show that BEA WebLogic technology coupled with Unisys hardware can help to further enable customers to benefit from a more scalable enterprise application infrastructure at reduced costs.

BEA outperformed IBM at only 42% of the cost of IBM's configuration. Further, BEA required only four systems vs. IBM's nine systems of a comparable type and power to achieve higher performance.

TIM Peru Deploys "One Call" Solution on WebLogic Platform 8.1
(San Jose, CA) - TIM Peru, a subsidiary of Telecom Italia Mobile, has built and deployed its new One Call call-center solution on BEA WebLogic Platform 8.1. This marks a key milestone in TIM Peru's mission to build a service-oriented architecture (SOA) that can enable the company to reduce overhead, improve customer service, and increase revenue.

TIM Peru operates one of the most advanced wireless networks in Latin America, serving more than 800,000 customers. In the past, a TIM Peru representative had to access multiple applications in order to answer a single customer question, often resulting in customer service calls that lasted as long as 15 minutes. In some cases, representatives had to end the calls to track down the necessary information then redial the customer. The One Call solution is designed to utilize an SOA to integrate back-office systems and expose their data and functionality to representatives within a unified desktop.

When evaluating technology platforms upon which to build the One Call solution, TIM Peru considered enterprise offerings from many vendors. They selected WebLogic Platform 8.1 because of its support for open standards and because it can help deliver rapid time to value.

Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together. The number of software platforms, apps, hardware and connectivity standards is creating paralysis among businesses that are afraid of being locked into a solution. EdgeX Foundry is unifying the community around a common IoT edge framework and an ecosystem of interoperable components.
DX World EXPO, LLC, a Lighthouse Point, Florida-based startup trade show producer and the creator of "DXWorldEXPO® - Digital Transformation Conference & Expo" has announced its executive management team. The team is headed by Levent Selamoglu, who has been named CEO.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
