CSC Selects Oracle WebLogic To Help Build SOA Foundation

BEA WebLogic and AquaLogic Products To Serve as the Core Technology in Rollout of New Services

BEA Systems announced that it was selected by Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) to join the solution delivery team for the Defense Information Systems Agency’s (DISA) Service-Oriented Architecture Foundation (SOAF) program. CSC, in partnership with BEA, Raytheon and Sun Microsystems, was awarded the SOAF contract under the US Army’s ITES-2S contract to support the Net-Centric Enterprise Services (NCES) program. CSC estimates the value of the task order, which has two base years and five one-year options, to be in excess of $89 million if all options are exercised. The value of this agreement is included under the U.S. Army Information Technology Enterprise Solutions-2 Services contract, which CSC originally announced on July 31, 2006.

The NCES program is designed to deliver SOA foundational services to Defense Department Services, Agencies and Combatant Commanders at all echelons. These services include service discovery, enterprise service management, machine-to-machine messaging and mediation. The agreement calls for the CSC team to deploy an SOA solution built using BEA’s WebLogic and BEA’s AquaLogic products and for the SOA solution to be made available worldwide via DISA’s Defense Enterprise Computing Centers (DECCs). Both classified and unclassified production environments are to be supported and CSC is to provide these SOA capabilities as a managed service to all Defense Department entities.

“BEA is excited about this opportunity to demonstrate our expertise in enterprise infrastructure technology by helping provide critical components required by the Department of Defense as they move forward with their transformation efforts,” said Joe Dvornicky, Vice President and General Manager of Government at BEA Systems. “CSC is a highly valued partner for our commercial and government business worldwide and our gratitude extends to CSC’s ability for building a strong and innovative team that made this opportunity possible.” 

Under the agreement, the CSC team will implement the four SOA foundational services based on a combination of BEA WebLogic and AquaLogic products and the BEA AquaLogic Service Bus will be deployed in the SOA Foundation as a comprehensive, light-weight SOA backbone and has been designed to help organizations create configuration-driven and reusable service components, service enable existing legacy applications and quickly build new SOA-based applications for improving enterprise agility. 

The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) is a combat support agency responsible for planning, engineering, acquiring, fielding and supporting global net-centric solutions to serve the needs of the U.S. President, Vice President, the Secretary of Defense, and other Department of Defense components, under all conditions of peace and war.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
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. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

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. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. 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...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies.

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...
