Justsystems Joins Forces With IBM DB2 to Offer Platform for Native XML Applications

ATLANTA, Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at the XML 2005 Conference & Expo, Atlanta, Justsystems Inc., a leading enterprise software provider, announced that it was working with IBM to deliver a comprehensive solution for native XML applications.

The solution is based on IBM's next version of DB2, code-named "Viper". The combination of Viper and Justsystems' xfy front-end application platform will provide native support for XML content handling and business intelligence.

Internet applications have evolved from stand-alone, thick-client solutions toward thinner, Web-based services that are increasingly platform-independent. XML is a key enabling technology that continues to accelerate this growth process. Multi-structured databases that can store and manage both traditional relational data and native XML documents will be an essential component in future computing architectures.

"The Internet has changed the face of business, offering an immediate channel for conducting transactions and communicating with customers, distribution channels, and trading partners," said Bernie Spang, director IBM database marketing. "The combined solutions of Justsystems' xfy and IBM DB2 Viper can provide critical information about customer and partner interactions, orders, trades, contracts, and quotes that flow in and out of dynamic, externally facing systems."

"IBM is the worldwide leader in creating innovative Web services for e- business, and DB2 is the leading database management system," said Mr. Kazunori Ukigawa, CEO of Justsystems Corporation. "We are pleased to work with IBM in order to offer a new, comprehensive XML solution."

More about the xfy Enterprise Solution for DB2 Viper

xfy Enterprise Solution for DB2 Viper(1) serves as a platform for creating and running native XML applications extremely rapidly. It is based on xfy Basic Edition 1.0, released in Oct. 2005, which elevated XML beyond its beginnings as a document and data format. On the xfy platform, a document becomes the fundamental executable unit of an XML application -- an "XML Object" that contains both data and business logic.

xfy Enterprise Solution for DB2 Viper provides semi-automated, real-time application creation from existing XML resources, such as XML Schema or XQuery results.

xfy Enterprise Solution for DB2 Viper is written entirely in Java and runs on multiple platforms, including Windows, Linux, and Macintosh.

Justsystems first announced the beta version of xfy technology in November 2004. After much technical feedback and many favorable evaluations from experienced programmers and developers worldwide, Justsystems released xfy Basic Edition 1.0 in October 2005.

xfy Basic Edition 1.0 and xfy Developer's Toolkit 1.0 are available free for non-commercial individual or academic use.

(1) xfy Enterprise Solution for DB2 Viper consists of xfy Enterprise Solution 1.0 and DB2 Viper Extension kit. xfy Enterprise Solution 1.0 is scheduled for release in June, 2006. The DB2 Viper Extension Kit will follow.

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.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

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...
