ArchBeat Link-o-Rama for 2012-10-10

  • Oracle's Analytics, Engineered Systems, and Big Data Strategy | Mark Rittman
    Part 1 of 3 in Oracle ACE Director Mark Rittman's series on Oracle Exalytics, Oracle R Enterprise and Endeca.
  • Series: How to Kill the Architecture Department? Part 1 | Xebia Blog
    Don't let the title fool you. This is not an anti-architecture post. Rather, this post, part 1 of a now four-part series, offers suggestions for preserving architecture in a form that better supports agile organizations.
  • BPM Suite configure BAM Adapter | Peter Paul van der Beek
    "To have the BPM server push events to BAM – Business Activity Monitoring – we have to configure the BPM suite to use the BAM Adapter," says Peter Paul van de Beek. "The BAM Adapter is configured (like other SOA Suite and BPM Adapters) in the WebLogic Server Console." Peter Paul shows you how in this brief post.
  • A case for not installing your own software | James Gentsch
    "I look selfishly forward to cloud computing and engineered systems dramatically reducing the occurrence of problems triggered by unforeseen environmental situations in the software I am responsible for," says James Gentsch. "I think this is an evolutionary game changer that will be a huge benefit to the reliability and consistent performance of the software for my customers, and may make 'well, it works here' a well forgotten phase for future software developers."

Thought for the Day

"I'm a strong believer in being minimalistic. Unless you actually are going to solve the general problem, don't try and put in place a framework for solving a specific one, because you don't know what that framework should look like."

Podcast Show Notes: The Big Deal About Big Data

This week the OTN ArchBeat Podcast kicks off a three-part series that looks at Big Data: what it is, its affect on enterprise IT, and what architects need to do to stay ahead of the big data curve. My guests for this conversation are Jean-Pierre Dijks and Andrew Bond . Jean-Pierre, based at Oracle HQ in Redwood Shores, CA, is product manager for Oracle Big Data Appliance and Oracle's big data strategy.

Andrew is based in the UK, but for this conversation he dialed in from a car somewhere on the streets of Amsterdam.
  • Listen to Part 1
    What is Big Data, really, and why does it matter?
  • Listen to Part 2
    What new challenges does Big Data present for Architects? What do architects need to do to prepare themselves and their environments?

  • Webcast: Lightweight #Java EE Architectures with @AdamBien - July 24 - 10am PT / 1pm ET

  • Business SOA: Thinking is dead | Steve Jones
    "Planning, architecture and design are being seen in parts of IT as bad things as a mentality develops around a concept that some how basic fundamentals such as TDD, contract design and doing things that are actually proven to work are in some way wrong," says Capgemini's Steve Jones. "Adoption of unproven technologies is rife as is the surprise when those technologies fail to deliver on the massively over hyped expectation and indeed fail to even come close to delivering at the level of dull old technologies that do the job but don't currently have the twitterati in thrall."
  • Oracle RTD Hardware Requirements and Components
    In the latest post in his series on Oracle Real Time Decisions (RTD), Rittman Mead's James Knight looks at components that live in the RTD black box and offers examples of some RTD environments.
