The convergence of Mobile, Social, Big Data, and Cloud has placed increasing demands on today’s applications to react instantaneously to changes in data at a large scale. A delay of a few seconds can mean the difference between engaging or losing a customer for a retailer, increased liquidity or fraud risk for a financial institution, or escalation of an adverse occurrence in a manufacturing process or IoT network.
Many people take integration messaging for granted, and many organizations assume that any messaging platform is as fully featured as any other. But in today’s increasingly connected world, with the emergence of major trends in consumer and enterprise technology like mobile, cloud computing, big data, and the Internet of Things, your organization needs to carefully review its messaging platforms and capabilities if you hope to continue to reliably serve your customers and deliver and maintain critical advantages over your competition.
To illustrate how vital and varied messaging platforms can be, let’s explore what exactly messaging is and compare several different approaches to meeting your organization’s messaging needs.
There are a few Open Source technologies and products that have spearheaded the drive of Open Source into the enterprise and managed to overcome historical objections – Linux, Apache Web Server, MySQL, Postgres, WordPress, Hadoop, to name some of the better known technologies. Those technologies paved the way for the open source revolution of the last decade; every enterprise vendor and every organization has adopted open source to some degree. Open Source has won; get over it.
Today, we officially announced the availability of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7 beta. A huge thanks to all the engineers who worked so hard to make this beta release possible!
I’ve been part of the Middleware (aka JBoss) team at Red Hat for almost 8 years now and I can say pretty unequivocally that 2015 was a huge year. Huge. Huge in terms of growth (the team, revenue, customers); huge in terms of the number of new initiatives and markets we’re taking on and huge in terms of product releases. I don’t plan to enumerate all the year’s achievements here – there are way too many, but I did want to cover a few of the more recent announcements.
We’re pleased to announce the launch of Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite 6.2 and Red Hat JBoss BRMS 6.2, our business process management (BPM) and business rules management platforms. These updates introduce a number of feature enhancements and new capabilities designed to infuse greater speed, quality, and control into the day-to-day creation and management of business rules and processes.
A little more than two years ago, we announced Red Hat’s “xPaaS” initiative to provide Red Hat JBoss Middleware on OpenShift and introduce a new way of building and deploying enterprise applications. Our efforts in executing against that vision and roadmap have entailed a lot of work and have been very exciting.
Today we announced three new Red Hat JBoss Middleware services on OpenShift based on Red Hat Fuse, JBoss BRMS, and JBoss Data Grid.
Performance and Scalability for Cloud Applications
With cloud computing, businesses expect and demand that their applications deliver higher performance, availability, reliability, flexibility, and scalability than ever before. But the influx of data is creating new obstacles that make it difficult for applications to meet the demands and expectations.
Organizations across a range of industries are sitting on treasure troves of data. For the business intelligence team with the right tools, they can mine this data and unearth brilliant insights that could lead to the creation of new products and services and improve customer service and retention rates. With the possibility of such rich opportunities mere queries away, it’s no wonder that IT departments are increasingly concerned about data usage for analytics.
Healthcare companies face many challenges as they seek to transform their organizations and remain competitive while managing patients’ health, complying with evolving regulations, and achieving interoperability with the rest of the healthcare community.
At the heart of the healthcare revolution are IT leaders charged with catalyzing rapid innovation. Technology is an important part of the solution for overcoming these challenges and evolving healthcare for the good of both the patient and the business. An open and interoperable IT infrastructure can help stimulate innovation throughout the organization, while creating greater IT efficiency, stability, scalability, and security.
In this post, we will explore the key integration challenges that healthcare companies are grappling with today and discuss both old and new solutions to these challenges.
