Active Endpoints Announces ActiveVOS 6.1

New release delivers enhanced functionality for BPM developers and users, including new SOA adopters

Active Endpoints announced the general availability of ActiveVOS 6.1, the latest release of the company's all-in-one business process management (BPM) system. ActiveVOS 6.1 has enhanced its offering for business analysts, operations staff and managers while breaking new ground in developer productivity.

By integrating the knowledge gained from production deployments at organizations worldwide, ActiveVOS 6.1 offers new features including:

  • Process Rewind - Process rewind gives organizations unprecedented flexibility in managing running, in-flight processes. Prior releases of ActiveVOS had the ability to retry an activity, a scope or the entire process. ActiveVOS 6.1 adds the ability to rewind a process to a specific activity and redo the work without having to invoke any of the built-in compensation logic. ActiveVOS 6.1 process rewind also maintains an audit log which documents any changes to the process.
  • Breakthrough Developer Productivity - While retaining 100% compatibility with standards, ActiveVOS 6.1 has eliminated the complexity of using services in an application and permits developers to "work as they think."
  • Any-Order BPM Development - In previous systems, developers had to know in advance the details of services to be deployed. Wizards which attempt to guide developers through entering service details are unforgiving if one or two items are unknown as the developer is entering them. With ActiveVOS 6.1, however, details are presented as graphical tables into which details can be entered at any time. To prevent flaws, ActiveVOS 6.1 provides automated analysis to ensure correctness and completeness.
  • Automatic Development - ActiveVOS 6.1 makes it easy for developers new to SOA-based BPM to do the "right thing." ActiveVOS 6.1 automatically understands the basic - but complex - idea of "private" versus "public" web services definition files (WSDL). And ActiveVOS 6.1 will automatically create the required WSDLs, in a 100%-standards compliant mode and in a human-understandable format.
  • Improved Data Handling - ActiveVOS 6.1 allows developers to visually specify what data is needed in each activity and guides the developer through XPath and XQuery statement generation with point-and-click ease when navigating the Business Process Execution Language (BPEL), the core language of SOA.

Users can download a free, 30-day, fully-supported trial of ActiveVOS 6.1. ActiveVOS is available as a perpetual license for use in either an internal development environment or a deployment environment.

Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential. DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO expands the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike.
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. That means serverless is also changing the way we leverage public clouds. Truth-be-told, many enterprise IT shops were so happy to get out of the management of physical servers within a data center that many limitations of the existing public IaaS clouds were forgiven. However, now that we've lived a few years with public IaaS clouds, developers and CloudOps pros are giving a huge thumbs down to the...
Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes was originally built by Google, leveraging years of experience with managing container workloads, and is now a Cloud Native Compute Foundation (CNCF) project. Kubernetes has been widely adopted by the community, supported on all major public and private cloud providers, and is gaining rapid adoption in enterprises. However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex to learn. This is because Kubernetes is more of a toolset than a ready solution. Hence it’s essential to know when and how to apply the appropriate Kubernetes constructs.
To enable their developers, ensure SLAs and increase IT efficiency, Enterprise IT is moving towards a unified, centralized approach for managing their hybrid infrastructure. As if the journey to the cloud - private and public - was not difficult enough, the need to support modern technologies such as Containers and Serverless applications further complicates matters. This talk covers key patterns and lessons learned from large organizations for architecting your hybrid cloud in a way that: Supports self-service, "public cloud" experience for your developers that's consistent across any infrastructure. Gives Ops peace of mind with automated management of DR, scaling, provisioning, deployments, etc.
