2008-03-18 Tuesday

I'm sitting in a client workshop this week, learning about Primavera's Cost Manager product - and assessing the options for integrating the product into the overall Enterprise Architecture plan.

This week the client is installing Relativity's Modernization Workbench. I originally recommended the client consider this tool - based on IBM's OEM resale of the tool under the brand name Asset Transformation Workbench.


I've identified another tool to add to my bag of security tools: Microsoft's Network Monitor 3.1 - some useful information here: blogs.technet.com/netmon

Creating a RESTful API with WCF

I'm considering taking some time to attend the OASIS Symposium: Composability within SOA.

OASIS will hold a 3 day symposium on the topic of "Composability within SOA" in Santa Clara, CA from April 28th to April 30th. Peter Carbone, VP of SOA at Nortel and Douglas Shoupp, Principal at Deloitte Consulting will be the keynote speakers.
In addition to the regular program, attendees can chose from hands-on tutorials which include:

- Securing data across the enterprise using SOA
- Semantic business process management
- Effective standards work
- Proposed Standards for End-to-End Resource Planning
- Building composite applications with SCA, Apache Tuscany, and SDO
- Deploying composable solutions
- Composing meaningful documents
- Using web services standards and open source implementations to develop an eGovernment interoperability framework

Red Hat buys SOA knowledge transfer expertise
"That’s the reason Red Hat Inc. bought Amentra Inc., a integration services provider headquartered in Richmond, VA., which specializes in providing SOA knowledge transfer for its clients. In making this deal, Red Hat is betting that Amentra can provide the consulting services needed to support JBoss, the middleware company Red Hat acquired two years ago."

Data services pain points have become an SOA target for JBoss
