Sun at Gartner MDM Summit

I'm pleased to write that Sun will be a sponsor at Gartner's Master Data Management Summit November 17-19. This will be our first time sponsoring, so we are excited to be there.

Sponsoring for the first time does not mean that we are new to this space. Starting with e\*Index 4.1 in 2000, continuing with eIndex and eView 5.0 and 5.1 in 2003 and 2006, and the release of our new MDM Suite as part of our Java CAPS Release 6 in June of this year, we have had an offering for MDM for quite some time.

If you are attending, stop by and say hi. If you aren't, consider doing so, even though Chicago in November probably isn't at the top of everyone's list.

Mural, Master Index, and MySQL

I'm pleased to share that Master Index support of MySQL is now available in the Mural Community. See the announcement and go get the bits to try it out. The MySQL support is in both the stable and nightly builds.

This is an important milestone as it allows the community to now adopt an MDM solution without requiring an expensive and closed source database. MySQL has always been supported as a source of information to be indexed, but with this development the index itself can now use MySQL.

This is also the first step in delivering this support for our customers of the MDM Suite and Java CAPS. Stay tuned!

Java CAPS 6 Launched

It has now been a week since we launched the Sun Java Composite Application Platform Suite (CAPS) Release 6 so I thought I'd share some of the feedback we are getting from the press and analysts

Many of the reports just regurgitate our press release and thus aren't terribly interesting. Several have gone into more depth though including:
  • Sun Releases JCAPS 6 with MDM Suite - John Waters from ADT quotes Dan Sholler of Gartner as saying "The attitude toward open source has definitely changed in the recent past. More companies are taking open source solutions seriously for mission critical situations. Sun might be poised to take advantage of that change."
  • Sun Java CAPS chugs down SOA open source track - Rich Seeley of SearchSOA.com writes an article with quotes from us as well as Brad Shimmin from Current Analysis saying "The two most important things in addition to the JBI modularization are Sun's shipment of an MDM suite that is itself JBI-based and built on top of the company's ESB as well as its CEP tool, which is built into the ESB suite".
  • Sun bolsters SOA software with data management - Paul Krill focuses on our new MDM Suite.
  • Sun touts open integration platform - Rosalie Marshall quotes Neil Ward-Dutton from Macehiter Ward-Dutton "Now Sun is showing remaining SeeBeyond Customers it still has a commitment to the integration software". And to his comment that Java CAPS is too large for small and medium sized companies and the community, that is what our ESB Suite and Open ESB are for!
  • Sun Unveils Java CAPS 6, Master Data Management Suite - IT News Online quotes Java CAPS customer Vince Blanchard from Medavie Blue Cross saying "Lock-in with any vendor is a top concern for us. Sun's implementation of the pluggable Java Business Integration (JBI) standard combined with its open source strategy within Open ESB and Java CAPS have addressed this concern for us."
