Sun Service Oriented Architecture Gains Momentum

New Customers, Products, Services and Training Put Sun Ahead in the Service Oriented Architecture Market

SAN FRANCISCO, JAVAONE(SM) CONFERENCE, May 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sun Microsystems, Inc. , the creator and leading advocate of Java(TM) technology, is showcasing its leadership in providing open source, open standards-based service-oriented architecture products and services at the JavaOne conference today. Sun is also adding to the more than 2,000 existing SOA customers and 1.1 million Sun Java Enterprise System subscribers and highlighting recent customer wins, including Harrods, TransAmerica Life Insurance Company, the San Diego County Health Medical Society Foundation, the London Borough of Harrow and Cadbury Schweppes.

Sun is achieving significant customer gains and providing customer value with its Sun Java(TM) Composite Application Platform Suite (Java CAPS), primarily due to the flexibility of the software and a subscription pricing option that allows customers to build SOAs around both short- and long-term needs. Java CAPS is helping Sun customers increase software development productivity, leverage their existing IT investments and drive down total cost of ownership (TCO). In addition, the latest version of Java CAPS is the first product to combine the former SeeBeyond(TM) ICAN Suite with Sun's integration and communications software.

Java CAPS is a leading platform for developing service oriented architectures that improve business integration and agility. Sun is already receiving industry praise for its latest SOA endeavor. For example, Current Analysis recently published a favorable report on Java CAPS at http://www.currentanalysis.com/m/sun/files/CurrentAnalysis-CIR21579.pdf. The Butler Group recently reconfirmed that TCO savings continue to be as high as 58 percent using the integrated tools in Java CAPS: http://www.sun.com/products/soa/resources.jsp.

"Developing a responsive technology infrastructure is becoming increasingly critical to the success of our business units," said Gwen Kluber, CIO, Financial Markets Group (FMG), a division of Transamerica Life Insurance Company. "As new programs are developed at the local business unit level and considered for roll-out across the organization, we require systems that allow us to evolve quickly and effectively with a minimum of disruption for our agents. The Sun Java CAPS solution was the only platform we felt gave us the flexibility we needed with the total cost of ownership we felt we could support and Sun's commitment to partnership and to our success was clear throughout the entire selection process."

New Training and Service Offerings

A new set of service and training offerings for Java CAPS is designed to help customers get more from their existing IT investments and create new applications quickly, making their enterprises more competitive and responsive. Sun is now offering the following SOA business integration and Java CAPS services to help unlock customer value:

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
