Impact announcements

IBM’s “Smart SOA” conference is taking place in Vegas this week as a result of which there have been a number of announcements pertinent to the product set that I work with…

Firstly, some new names. The WebSphere XD components have been given lives of their own with Operations Optimization becoming WebSphere Virtual Enterprise and Data Grid becoming WebSphere eXtreme Scale. Recognizing the importance of both runtime and development time governance of services and service artefacts, WebSphere Service Registry and Repository Advanced Lifecycle Edition packages Service Registry and Repository with Rational Asset Manager.

Then a new product: WebSphere Business Events. This will build on IBM’s recent acquisition of AptSoft and its complex event processing technology. With a development team based in Hursley you can expect me to mention this product more in the future.
