BEA's AquaLogic Service Bus 3.0 Enables Enterprise SOA

Enterprise Service Bus Promotes Enterprise SOA Deployments

BEA Systems announced the release of BEA AquaLogic Service Bus 3.0, a comprehensive enterprise service bus (ESB) that is designed to improve the integration process for enterprise-wide service-oriented architecture (SOA) deployments. The solution is an SOA integration platform designed to connect, mediate and manage interactions between heterogeneous services, legacy applications and multiple ESB instances across an enterprise-wide service network.

"The same factors that lead a large company to acquire heterogeneous applications (differing requirements) also cause them to organize SOA initiatives into different domains -- a typical epicenter being a business unit. Initially, more than 90% of SOA interactions are confined within a single SOA domain. However as organizations develop a robust service portfolio the proportion of interdomain interactions increases as services are used in composite applications developed in other business units and to automate business processes that span organizational boundaries. Multiple requirements arise as service use increases. Performance must continue to meet expectations, QoS must be assured and appropriate service level-agreements, established. Also, organizations must ensure that they effectively manage a rapidly growing portfolio of diverse assets (e.g., services, policies, business processes) and publicize the availability of these assets," said Jess Thompson, research vice president, Gartner Research. "This will require organizations to effectively manage a portfolio of diverse assets (e.g., services, policies, business processes) and publicize the availability of these assets. Moreover, as the use of and dependence on services grows so do the requirements for dependable service level agreements and effective governance."

For organizations that adopted SOA to align IT initiatives with business strategies to compete in today's business environment, ESB technology acts as the essential link between business processes and services to help enterprises rapidly change with ever-evolving business needs. BEA AquaLogic Service Bus 3.0 is designed to be a comprehensive, light-weight SOA backbone to help IT organizations create configuration-driven and reusable service components, service enable legacy applications and quickly build new SOA-based applications for enabling enterprise agility.

"Whether an organization is looking to undertake its first SOA project or to augment its legacy applications, the new integration and scalability features in the latest version of BEA AquaLogic Service Bus can help unlock business value from siloed applications and give organizations a competitive edge through a more agile infrastructure," said Thanh Tran, senior vice president of AquaLogic products for BEA Systems. "As a result, organizations may increase time-to-market, lower total cost of ownership and improve ROI."

BEA AquaLogic Service Bus 3.0 enhances BEA WorkSpace 360 degrees by providing configuration-driven service integration with plug-ins to the BEA WorkSpace 360 degrees unified design environment. Businesses may benefit from faster release cycles due to ease-of-use, quicker time-to-market and increased developer productivity.

BEA AquaLogic Service Bus 3.0 is also designed to serve as the backbone for a flexible, reusable well-governed service network that allows enterprises to help build dynamic business applications.

New features and key customer benefits include:

  • Enterprise-wide service network comprising multiple SOA domains
  • Enhanced embedded management and quality of service (QoS)
  • BEA SmartConnect
  • Unified SOA and BPM
  • ESB and SOA Governance

BEA AquaLogic Service Bus 3.0 will be available in Q1 of 2008. For more information on BEA AquaLogic Service Bus 3.0, please visit here.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
