TIBCO's Matt Quinn To Present Service Virtualization Session at SOA World 2007 Conference & Expo

"How To Simplify Heterogeneous SOA" is the title of Quinn's session

Matt Quinn (pictured), SVP of product strategy for TIBCO Software, contends that many companies with large SOA deployments face two major challenges: how to promote service reuse and how to manage the complexity of a heterogeneous, distributed SOA that includes Java, .NET, and various legacy and packaged applications deployed across the enterprise.

"The solution," Quinn explains, "is to implement service virtualization to make services portable and protocol independent."

He will be giving a session on the topic at the 11th SOA World 2007 Conference & Expo, June 25-27 2007, New York City. The session will cover the different architectural components of service virtualization – mediation, deployment, governance and service management – and the standards that make service virtualization possible.

Quinn has been with TIBCO for over seven years, working a variety of key positions. As an expert in agents and highly distributed complex systems, he is often called upon to help customers solve some of their most challenging integration problems. He has written a PhD thesis on "Distributed Workflow Systems" and is currently completing a book on enterprise architectures.

Enterprise Open Source 2007 East Conference & Expo
In the world of Enterprise Open Source software, the code is free and open but you can pay for things such as support, packaging, and/or reliable distributions. This conference aims to help attendees navigate the choppy waters between what JBoss CEO Marc Fleury calls "the expectations/perceptions of the open source community and the reality of sustaining the kind of software and services that professional IT management can be comfortable signing off on."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
