10/07/2009 The Right Way To Integrate Data For Application Integration Gold Club Protected

A White Paper by David S. Linthicum

Traditional data integration approaches within the service-oriented architecture (SOA) movement – such as enterprise application integration (EAI) or enterprise service bus (ESB) – are not as effective as you might think. Data integration is extremely complex, and requires the right tool for the job. The way data integration is implemented, and the technology leveraged, can make all the difference.

EAI tools and ESBs look good on architecture diagrams, but the lack of focus on the data typically leads to disaster. Without an efficient way to transform raw data into a strategic asset, manufacturers cannot shorten product life cycles, increase customer satisfaction, and improve their response to market demands.

This David S. Linthicum LLC white paper, The Right Way To Integrate Data For Application Integration, explains:

  • The challenges a sporting goods manufacturer experiences when using the wrong data integration tools and failing to take the complexity of its data into account
  • How to understand your own data integration needs and select the right tool for the job
  • Things to consider when choosing a data integration technology, including the ability to handle larger amounts of large data sets and integrated data quality, etc.

David Linthicum is an internationally known expert in EAI, SOA, and cloud computing. He has formed or enhanced many of the ideas behind modern distributed computing including EAI, B2B Application Integration, and SOA, approaches and technologies in wide use today.

12/15/2008 Magic Software's uniPaaS Provides Flexible Rich Internet Application and SaaS Platform for ISVs and Enterprises Gold Club Protected
Jeff Kaplan of THINKstrategies talks about uniPaaS, and the advantages of metadata-driven approach for RIA and SaaS development .

Jeff Kaplan recommends that ISVs and enterprise software developers consider SaaS platforms which permit the greatest flexibility in addition to their scalability and security considerations. 
Kaplan believes we are quickly approaching an era in which customers will demand a choice of acquiring SaaS solutions delivered in the ‘cloud’ or deploying the solution behind the firewall on-premise. In response, ISVs and enterprise software developers are recommended to start thinking about SaaS platforms which permit the greatest flexibility in addition to their scalability and security considerations.

In this context, Kaplan examines the merits of Magic Software’s uniPaaS application platform in offering a single development paradigm with multiple deployment modes. He thinks that uniPaaS represents an attractive platform for ISVs with existing single-tenant applications who want to migrate to a multi-tenant approach without ending up with two code bases and platforms to support. This can save ISVs significant monies and accelerate the time to market and ROI. 
Kaplan also thinks that Magic Software’s uniPaaS provides flexible Rich Internet Application and SaaS platform for ISVs and enterprises, by offering a metadata-driven alternative to typical code-centric software development solutions. uniPaaS provides ISVs and enterprises with the tools they need to cost-effectively develop RIA and SaaS solutions to cater to their varying requirements. It could help open up the SaaS market to more ISVs who otherwise would not attempt to carry on-premise and on-demand solutions, and could encourage additional market growth and innovation.
