An App Platform for the Real-time Enterprise


Published on

The Briefing Room with Dr. Robin Bloor and EnterpriseWeb
Live Webcast Apr. 2, 2013

Global trends such as social, mobile, cloud and outsourcing are fragmenting the modern enterprise. People, information and systems are increasingly distributed. Businesses need a way to bring it all back together, virtually. One solution is to re-imagine an organization as a web of loosely-coupled resources (entities, objects, services, APIs, systems and devices) connected by links and metadata.

Register for this episode of The Briefing Room to hear veteran Analyst Dr. Robin Bloor explain how a new style of real-time event-driven architecture enables ‘smart’ and adaptable applications and business processes. He'll be briefed by Dave Duggal of EnterpriseWeb, a horizontally scalable platform for modeling, running and managing composite apps. He will talk about his company's unified approach and provide a live demonstration of their platform.

  33. 33. !   Isn’t the problem just too big to solve completely?!   How does EnterpriseWeb manage metadata?!   How does it guarantee security of access to data?!   Is this really a codeless environment? What if I want a specific performance capability that requires low-level coding?!   Why do you not require/have an ESB? The Bloor Group
  34. 34. !   When you say “real-time” what do you mean in respect of performance characteristics?!   Is it an in-memory technology?!   Can this environment manage Big Data workloads?!   When using EnterpriseWeb what do you build and what do you buy (in respect of applications)? The Bloor Group
