Business Technology Brief

  1. 1. Business Introduction to StreamEPS Line of Products. SoftGene Technologies (Business Series) By Frank Appiah, CTO© SGT GH. 2012
  2. 2. Long-term Goal● Customers/Partners will demand from SGT GH to: – Drive the adoption of StreamEPS market. – Drive the adoption of CEP/DSMS/IFP technology.● Improve the service quality for increased customer satisfaction.● Help meet the demands of customers for increased customer satisfaction.
  3. 3. Customer Requirements● The requirements of customers – Ability to publish, search for, evaluate and register as a consumer of a service. – Sufficient variability in service function to customer needs. – Ability to guarantee the availability and lifetime of a service version. – Mechanisms for decoupling the con- sumers life cycle from the providers.
  4. 4. Fulfilling Customer Needs● The main attributes of the product – Reuse Consistency – Efficiency – Lower cost and Time-to-market – Agility, Flexibility and Business Alignment. – Application and Data Integration
  5. 5. Reuse of Software● The holy grail of open source software is much dependent on reuse of services.● The components in the services provide a live up promise to the marketeers.● Better architectural requirements for effective software reuse.
  6. 6. Efficiency of Design● A product dependent on open source platform derives much exhibited support from the community.● The derivation of support of large base community increases product efficiency in contrast to “Build IT”- Build Internal Technology.● Efficient means to build more functionality, in less time, at less cost.● A layered set of services for service composition.
  7. 7. Agility, Flexibility and Business Alignment.● Ability to snappily compose applications from those services.● Achieving agility and efficiency requires an easily searchable catalog of functions.● A catalog of available services.
  8. 8. Lower Cost and Time-to- market● Design-Time service discovery helps identify a service endpoint for a requested interface to enable lower cost of development.● Governance is provided for regulating service definitions and enhancements via Spring.● Guidelines, templates, checklists and examples make it easy to conform to governance requirement.● Good governance increases time-to- market.
  9. 9. Application and Data Integration● Application Integration is dependent on EAI (Enterprise Architecture Integration) to implement application integration.● Data Integration is provided also by EAI and also with data formats like XML and JSON for interoperability with different software and platform technologies.● For example, .NET to Java will demand data formats like XML/JSON.
  10. 10. Cost Analysis● Development Cost Equation: Cost EPS Platform(IT)= FC + rA is the total mixed cost. – FC : Fixed Cost – r: Variable Rate – A: Activity Level Cost● Fixed Cost includes committed fixed costs, discretionary fixed costs.
  11. 11. Cost Analysis II● The “engineering approach” to cost analysis is based on industrial engineers evaluation of the inputs required to carry out a particular activity and the price of those inputs.● Activity is measured in terms of the volume of services provided by the organisation.
  12. 12. Financial Advantages● The total cost of ownership is not practical to platforms.● Developing products with platforms will enhance time-to-market and increase total-cost of product ownership.● Open platforms provides transparency for services to compose applications that other platform vendors need to compete with but the solution is already out there.● Why reinvent the wheel?
  13. 13. Strengths and Advantages● The special features and advantages of the product are grouped under: – Context Engine – Service Context – Management
  14. 14. Context Engine● The context engine provides an engine for processing – Segment-Oriented – Temporal-Orientedfrom any data source streams.
  15. 15. Service Context● A run-time server that provides – Run-time Context Service – Filter/Aggregation/Pattern Services ● Filter: ● Aggregation: ● Pattern: Trend Analysis, Threshold Assertions, Modal Assertions, Logic Assertions. ● Service Listeners – Security Provisioning – Transport Services: HTTP/JMS/TCP(IP)
  16. 16. Management● Run-time Context Management● Configuration Management● State Management● User Management● Meta-data Management● Big-data Management
  17. 17. Next Steps of Action● Creating a StreamEPS market● Acquiring more funds to expand business and products.● Creating partnerships with market vendors.● Strengthening the licenses of products and submitting for IP/Copyrights.
