Today's corporate computing environment is too often characterized by silos of data in enterprise applications like ERP, CRM, and supply chain management. Integrating these applications involves hardwiring connections between them, often resulting in a rigid and inefficient IT infrastructure. Packaged Composite Applications (PCAs) are an innovative answer to this dysfunctional scenario. Originated by SAP, one of the worlds foremost technology companies, PCAs represent a new architectural paradigm for enterprise computing. Using web services, they combine new functionality with services from existing applications to enable flexible, cross-functional automation. But is this new model right for your business? That's where this book comes in. Packaged Composite Applications is the result of a systematic search through the brain trust of SAP for all of the relevant arguments, examples, concepts, and analogies related to Packaged Composite Applications. This book is not a marketing treatise about neatly-shaped colored boxes. It is not a backward-looking, outdated description of a product without context. This book, rather, combines the approach of a forward-looking analyst with the perspective of an executive who must make things work, without skimping on the relevant technical details. The author examines the ideas driving PCAs forward in the marketplace and the problems and solutions that an executive and technologist will encounter in implementation. The result is an authoritative text that allows all interested parties to assess the value of PCAs for their lives as executives, technologists, analysts, sales representatives, and users.

Technology Forecast: 20032005 is the latest in a series that the PricewaterhouseCoopers Global Technology Centre has published annually for more than a dozen years. This years book provides in-depth coverage of enterprise applications and enabling software and forecasts significant developments in those areas over the next three years. It also contains information of particular interest to senior executives, including CFO Perspectives for each of the chapters and a chapter on business reporting and XBRL.As the pace of business quickens, companies must eliminate information lag and make more timely decisions. Business intelligence technologiesbusiness activity monitoring, event notification, and digital dashboardsprovide executives with real-time information about the status of key business processes, including their relations with customers and suppliers. New business integration technologies, including increased use of XML-based Web services, are making end-to-end automation of business processes easier to accomplish. Meanwhile, the incorporation of analytic capabilities into virtually all enterprise applications, as well as advances in knowledge management and collaborative technologies, increase the speed and effectiveness of decision-making.Technology Forecast: 20032005 discusses these and other changes under way in enterprise IT. It is divided into three sections, each highlighting a different area of enterprise software, that together comprise ten chapters providing detailed coverage of specific technologies and applications:Enterprise Applications contains chapters on enterprise suites, including enterprise suite architectures, supply chain event and performance management, and enterprise resource planning; customer-facing applications; and business intelligence and enterprise analytics, including real-time business intelligence and business activity monitoring.Information Management comprises chapters on enterprise content management; knowledge management and e-learning; and collaborative technologies.Enabling Software includes chapters on XML and Web services; component frameworks, including J2EE and Microsoft .Net; application and portal servers; and business integration technologies, including business process modeling, monitoring, and management.In addition, the book features interviews with three leading figures in IT: Vivek RanadivéFounder, chairman and CEO of TIBCO Software. A recognized industry leader, Ranadivé was selected by InfoWorld as one of the top ten technology innovators in 2002. He was also recognized by Ernst & Young as a 2002 software entrepreneur of the year. His book The Power of Now: How Winning Companies Sense and Respond to Change Using Real-Time Technology (McGraw-Hill, 1999) has been widely used as a business school textbook.Tony ScottCTO for General Motors Information Systems and Services organization, where he is responsible for defining the enterprise architecture and standards across all of GMs global business.

Use SCA to Simplify the Development and Delivery of Service-Based Applications Service Component Architecture (SCA) is a new programming model that enables developers to build distributed applications more efficiently and effectively than previous technologies. In Understanding SCA (Service Component Architecture), two leading experts offer the first complete and independent guide to SCA. Drawing on extensive experience both developing the SCA standards and implementing large-scale SCA applications, Jim Marino and Michael Rowley provide an insider's perspective for developers and technical managers tasked with architecting and implementing enterprise systems. Rather than simply providing a technology overview, the authors draw on their practical experiences with SCA, explaining The full history behind SCA How SCA fits with other enterprise technologies such as JEE, .NET, Web Services, and BPEL All the major SCA concepts including composition, policy, wires, and bindings Best practices for designing SCA applications Using SCA with Web Services, Message-Oriented Middleware, BPEL, JPA, and Servlets Understanding SCA (Service Component Architecture) provides the background necessary to make informed decisions about when and how to best use SCA to build enterprise applications.

A Component Based Programming Model For Composite Distributed Applications

Abstract: "The nature of scientific programming is evolving to larger, composite applications that are composed of smaller element applications. These composite applications are more frequently being targeted for distributed, heterogeneous networks of computers. They are most likely programmed by a group of developers. Software component technology and computational frameworks are being proposed and developed to meet the programming requirements of these new applications. Historically, programming systems have had a hard time being accepted by the scientific programming community. In this paper, a programming model is outlined that attempts to organize the software component concepts and fundamental programming entities into programming abstractions that will be better understood by the application developers. The programming model is designed to support computational frameworks that manage many of the tedious programming details, but also that allow sufficient programmer control to design an accurate, high-performance application."

This IBM® Redbooks® publication describes how IBM PureApplicationTM System supports the creation of virtual systems and virtual applications. PureApplication System does so using a pattern model that enables you to take advantage of predefined, pre-configured, and proven middleware topologies and deployments. This book also presents an abstraction level that focuses on functional capabilities and applications, completely encapsulating the underlying middleware. It describes in detail the model and the associated frameworks in PureApplication System, as well as a methodology and approach toward designing and implementing a custom pattern model. This book shows concrete implementation examples that you can use when creating your own pattern model, paired with a collection of leading practices. This IBM Redbooks publication gives critical guidance to, and serves as a reference for, independent software vendors (ISVs) who want to create patterns for their packaged applications on PureApplication System. Clients who want to extend and enhance their existing patterns can also use this book.
