For many observers, I believe the take-away from this year’s JavaOne was: “business as usual.” In some important ways, business as usual here is a good thing.
Is Java (EE) dead?
There have been rumors and pontifications regarding a supposed demise of enterprise Java. There certainly are many areas and drivers of disruptive innovation in enterprise software development: microservices, event-driven programming, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are just a few. And yes, for a new project beginning in isolation with no constraints or requirements of backward compatibility, legacy integration, or management at scale, there are many new platforms and frameworks that may seem at first to be well-suited for any one of these new areas. But how many enterprise projects have that luxury?

Digital transformation sounds great, doesn’t it? The phrase is used to describe a paradigm where everything is connected—people, systems, applications, data, and devices.

And, they’re all in sync with your datacenter in real time. Systems of record and systems of engagement seamlessly connect and new business processes can be integrated or changed in days, not months or years.

In 2001, I was in the final term of my master’s in e-Business at La Salle University in Barcelona. Ramon Ollé, who at the time was the chairman and CEO of Epson Europe, gave a master class on innovation and explained how, with the advent of the Internet (that had been around for “just” a decade), competition was no longer between multinational companies (e.g., General Motors vs. Toyota). Instead, competition was now among the cluster of vendors that formed a partner ecosystem around brands. Success was tied to the ability of the vendors in those ecosystems and their systems to collaborate real-time to enable the two main sources of customer satisfaction: exceeded expectations and speed.
