04/26/2007 Full Transcript of Podcast with IBM's Billy Newport Gold Club Protected

Welcome to another "First Look" podcast. I'm your host, ebizQ's Project Manager, Gian Trotta. Joining us today is Billy Newport, IBM's senior technical staff member, chief architect for WebSphere XD ObjectGrid. He's going to discuss the implementation challenges and application benefits of data grid architecture. Welcome, Billy, and thanks for joining us.

Billy Newport: Thanks a lot, it's great to be here.

Gian Trotta: Billy, what exactly is a data grid and what advantage can it confer on an Enterprise?

BN: Conventional applications have been built in kind of multiple tiers, where you have a data tier and an application tier. And those kinds of architectures have served us well over the years. But recently, in some kinds of environments with the kind of work loads, the way they have been increasing -- those application architectures have kind of been showing their age. We're now seeing kind of a transition to data grid-type architectures where instead of pulling the application data from the data base, what we're seeing a trend through now is integrating the application with the data, so that the data is co-resident with the application. And then we scale out the application and grid technology.

04/25/2007 Full Transcript: Podcast with Jared Rodriguez of Skyway Software Gold Club Protected

Welcome to another "First Look" podcast. I'm your host, ebizQ's Product Manager, Gian Trotta. Our guest today is Skyway Software CTO, Jared Rodriguez, who'll talk about how Skyway's Visual Workspace makes end-user customers both willing and able to participate in a truly interactive software delivery process. Welcome, Jared and thanks for joining us!

Gian Trotta: Jared, we'd like to learn a little more about Skyway and your solution, and I guess we'll start by asking this. Can you tell me, who is Skyway Software?

Jared Rodriguez: Sure! So Skyway Software has been around since late 2001, and we started the company really to address a lot of the challenges we saw in the software development and software delivery lifecycle -- the challenges around the expense, the complexity and making software and delivering it.

We also started Skyway in regards to the SOA initiatives that were springing up at the time, a lot of which we were pioneers in, in past lives before actually beginning Skyway. Several of us worked on the UDDI specification, worked on the SOAP specification. We could really see the writing on the wall that SOA combined with some new styles of delivery could be a very, very powerful tool. We've been actively selling our solutions since 2005, and we've got some great customers that are out there using the Skyway products today and seeing value out of them -- such as TD Ameritrade, British American Tobacco and many others.

GT: That's not a bad client list! What is your specific solution offering and what does it do?

JR: Well, we offer the Skyway Visual Workspace and we couple our workspace (that's a tool) with a set of processes that go around it that can really enable an organization to be more accurate in what it delivers, so as to ensure that the solutions that are built really match up to what business is looking for and what the end customers are looking for. And that process, combined with our workspace, enables it to be done much, much faster than can be coded today.

Quick Guide: What is Enterprise 2.0?

A lot of people are talking about Enterprise 2.0 as being the business application of Web 2.0 technology.
