Data Mashups at AJAX World RIA Conference & Expo

Deliver Your Project Faster with Virtualized Data Services

At the 7th International AJAX World RIA Conference & Expo held June 22-23, 2009, in New York, Suresh Chandrasekaran, leader of sales and marketing in North America and APAC for Denodo Technologies, discussed the Enterprise Data mashup platform and how to build virtual data services.

"The basic problem that Data Mashups solve is the integration of a lot of information," noted Chandrasekaran. "The function of the Enterprise Data mashup platform is basically to go across unstructured and structured data and have a common platform to create virtualized data services."

Data Mashups is a holistic approach to data integration that deliver virtualized or batch access to internal and external information as Data Services. It is also significantly faster and less costly but works with existing middleware. Chandrasekaran explored three design patterns for Data Mashups: a) Data Services to support Single View, b) Operational BI & Composite Dashboards and c) Web Automation for Partner Processes

He also discussed the data services layer in SOA architecture, and how the SOA needs to be modularized as well as how technologies have grown up around structured and unstructured web. Most business problems today - customer interactions, BI, compliance, marketing - require access to internal, external, structured and unstructured information. Yet SOA initiatives based on traditional technologies have narrow scope or lack flexibility to solve business needs quickly.

According to Chandrasekaran, BI and SOA are the two big use cases.

Other items he touched on were Web automation and how it's based on example-based heuristics, as well as the reuse factor and flexibility factor of data services.

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Longer function invocation times (referred to as cold starts) become very important to track, because they impact the response time of the service and will impose additional cost. Additionally, the transition to smaller individual components (much like breaking a monolithic application into microservices) results in a simpler deployment model, but makes the system as a whole increasingly complex.
GCP Marketplace is based on a multi-cloud and hybrid-first philosophy, focused on giving Google Cloud partners and enterprise customers flexibility without lock-in. It also helps customers innovate by easily adopting new technologies from ISV partners, such as commercial Kubernetes applications, and allows companies to oversee the full lifecycle of a solution, from discovery through management.
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost and increase in speed. Sometimes in order to reduce complexity teams compromise features or change requirements

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
