Wikis, chat, webinars, conferencing, content sharing, and social networking have transformed our lives. Interacting with other people has never been easier or more potentially productive. Customers and employees are demanding the integration of ‘consumer’ technologies into new and existing applications. But, at the same time we have to deal with SOA, Cloud, Integration, Geography, Performance, Security, Reliability, and all the other aspects of real Enterprise applications. This session addresses the challenges, opportunities, architecture, design, and implementation of modern Enterprise applications.
Modern Enterprise solutions require new layers and capabilities in application architectures, new services, and new implementation technologies and techniques. This workshop will start with the typical n-tiered application architecture and then show where and how to add new technologies while still addressing traditional Enterprise concerns of availability, reliability, security, and scalability. It’s no surprise that SOA is a key component of these solutions, but we must go well beyond the typical view of SOA services to include Enterprise 2.0 and Cloud capabilities. The tutorial lays out an overall Enterprise application architecture and illustrates the major options for implementation including Java, .Net, and Open Source.
The workshop is structured as a mix of presentation, interactive discussion and group based exercises, so participants get the chance to apply the concepts learned to example scenarios during the facilitated exercises.
