TIBCO's AJAX Technology To Improve Customer Experience For Constellation Energy

TIBCO allows developers to easily deploy RIAs without dependency on applets, plug-ins or client/server frameworks

TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) announced that Constellation Energy has selected TIBCO General InterfaceTM as the asynchronous communications, javascript, and XML (AJAX) development platform for building Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) to enhance its customers’ user experience.

Constellation Energy was looking to reduce their overall deployment and IT support costs by transitioning several of the company’s traditional client/server applications to faster-to-install, easier-to-manage Web-based applications within its corporate portal. One requirement was that the move be made while still maintaining the rich usability of the older client/server solutions within the thin browser-based interface of new Internet applications. So, the company considered AJAX.

“We wanted a product that was dependable and integrated seamlessly with our existing TIBCO solutions,” said Jeff Johnson, manager of Corporate Applications, Constellation Energy. “With TIBCO General Interface, we got a mature, enterprise-tested product that would have immediate benefits for the company and our customers.”

TIBCO General Interface gives browser-based applications the features and performance characteristics typically seen in the user interfaces of traditional client/server-based applications. Leveraging the AJAX capabilities present in common Web browsers, TIBCO General Interface allows developers to easily deploy RIAs without dependency on applets, plug-ins or installation of client/server frameworks. Using TIBCO General Interface’s breakthrough development tools -- also built using TIBCO General Interface -- developers can rapidly create powerful solutions with drag-and-drop speed.

“TIBCO General Interface helps companies easily make the move to RIAs without taking on the typical high labor costs required to do so,” said Ram Menon, senior vice president, Worldwide Marketing, TIBCO. “Constellation Energy wanted to add AJAX functionality with a minimal amount of hand-coding, which would be required when using less-mature development tools. This is why they turned to TIBCO General Interface.”

CloudEXPO Stories
As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility.
This month @nodexl announced that ServerlessSUMMIT & DevOpsSUMMIT own the world's top three most influential Kubernetes domains which are more influential than LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, Medium, Infoworld and Microsoft combined. NodeXL is a template for Microsoft® Excel® (2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016) on Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10) that lets you enter a network edge list into a workbook, click a button, see a network graph, and get a detailed summary report, all in the familiar environment of the Excel® spreadsheet application. A collection of network maps and reports created with NodeXL can be seen in the NodeXL Graph Gallery, an archive of data sets uploaded by the NodeXL user community.
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.
Technology has changed tremendously in the last 20 years. From onion architectures to APIs to microservices to cloud and containers, the technology artifacts shipped by teams has changed. And that's not all - roles have changed too. Functional silos have been replaced by cross-functional teams, the skill sets people need to have has been redefined and the tools and approaches for how software is developed and delivered has transformed. When we move from highly defined rigid roles and systems to more fluid ones, we gain agility at the cost of control. But where do we want to keep control? How do we take advantage of all these new changes without losing the ability to efficiently develop and ship great software? And how should program and project managers adapt?
Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput. In this session, we'll explain what Linkerd provides for you, demo the installation of Linkerd on Kubernetes and debug a real world problem. We will also dig into what functionality you can build on top of the tools provided by Linkerd such as alerting and autoscaling.
