08/24/2005 IBM Content Integration for the On Demand Business Gold Club Protected
Most organizations today are saddled with multiple different content management and workflow systems resulting from departmental investments or inherited through mergers and acquisitions. This has trapped content in isolated silos, rendering it inaccessible outside of narrow workgroups, departments or functions. Enterprise content integration (ECI) has emerged as the preferred solution for breaking through these silos and unlocking the value of content across the enterprise. ECI has powerful implications from an infrastructure perspective, helping to eliminate complexity, and from a business point of view, helping to improve customer service, streamline processes, enhance revenues and support compliance-related initiatives. This whitepaper will explore the important role of ECI in the context of these and other business initiatives.

This White Paper examines the integration imperatives raised by the UCCnet data synchronization initiative. It explores how deep business integration, not mere compliance, is the key to achieving lasting business value from UCCnet investments.
08/05/2003 Production Web Services: The Critical Need for Monitoring and Analysis Gold Club Protected
Web services must be dependable, efficient and secure to fulfill the promise of significant benefits of deployment. In order to ensure that they are, and fix problems when they occur, Web services need to be monitored and their health analyzed. However, even IT organizations with sophisticated Web services deployed today cannot answer basic questions about the reliability, performance and security of their deployment. Therefore, the success of Web services depends, in part, on overcoming these operational challenges by incorporating cost-effective, flexible, nonintrusive and standards-based methods.

11/14/2008 Formalizing Operational Governance: Ensuring the well-managed enterprise Gold Club Protected

Governance is a straightforward concept and is practiced by all enterprises. It is the creation of policies regarding various aspects of the business and then making certain that the policies are followed. Creating the policies is not the main issue in having good governance; all successful enterprises do a good job creating policies. The hard part of governance, and where most enterprises fail, is in monitoring the policies and in knowing that the policies have been followed; in other words achieving control and compliance.

A new class of governance capability is available that will let you dynamically manage all governance efforts in a formal and efficient way, thereby delivering significant ROI to the business in terms of lower operating expenses and improved efficiency. In this paper, the concept of defining and formalizing Operational Governance is discussed, as well as the inherent benefits of implementing an Operational Governance solution.

08/20/2007 The Value of SOA Governance Gold Club Protected

The definition of corporate governance is creating, communicating, and enforcing policies in a corporate environment. Governance is the key to balancing executive control with employee and customer empowerment across the enterprise. While many corporate governance activities don't directly involve the information technology (IT) department, the enterprise does call upon IT to provide tooling for automating policy creation and enforcement, when itÍs possible to represent policies in a machine-understandable format.

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an approach to organizing IT resources to meet the changing needs of the business in flexible ways. Governance is an essential part of any SOA implementation, because it ensures that the organization applies and enforces the policies that apply to the Services that the organization creates as part of its SOA initiative. But more importantly, organizations can leverage SOA best practices to represent policies broadly in such a way that the organization can achieve better policy management, flexibility, and visibility into policy compliance across the enterprise.

The Integration Challenge: Delivering the Internet Opportunity Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is the most significant change for systems and applications since client server computing and the dawn of the relational database. A service-oriented architecture--a computer system based on having autonomous, federated actors working together across an intelligent network--is the application of the Internet to software architecture. The trend toward SOA will enable IT organizations to create more complex systems with less effort, link together business processes across geographical and corporate boundaries, and create new applications and systems that encompass the current mainframe, client/server, and Internet architectures.
02/11/2009 Maximize Business Value with Right-Time Information Using Data Services Gold Club Protected
How agile is your business? It's a question you can't afford to ignore, especially since being agile is how businesses effectively thrive in today's competitive environment. Unfortunately, too many organizations lack timely access to accurate, reliable, and relevant information, that drives business agility.

Therefore, organizations are forced to rethink how they access and integrate enterprise data across business unit silos and corporate firewalls. Application-centric integration approaches—SOA, BPM, EAI, and ESB—promise agility, but fail to deliver on that promise unless complemented by a sophisticated data integration platform that delivers holistic and accurate information as a service to consuming applications and business processes, exactly at the speed of the business.

Download this compelling Informatica White Paper to learn how your IT organization can leverage the power of a sophisticated data services solution to implement an agile enterprise information management (EIM) strategy. Discover how you can maximize business agility with right-time information to increase competitive advantage, improve compliance, and reduce cost, complexity, and risk.
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.
