  • 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."
