Today, humans have to interpret large sets of different data to make a decision. Using gut feeling is nothing but gambling. Therefore, big data analytics is getting more and more important every year to make better decisions. However, just doing big data analytics is not enough. In many use cases, systematic and monitored human interactions are as important to get best outcomes.
NoSQL Matters Conference 2014
NoSQL Matters is a great conference about different NoSQL topics. A lot of great NoSQL products and use cases are presented. In November 2014, I had a talk about “Real World Use Cases and Success Stories for In-Memory Data Grids” in Barcelona, Spain. I discussed several different use cases, which our TIBCO customers implemented using our In-Memory Data Grid “TIBCO ActiveSpaces“. I will present the same content at data2day, a German conference in Karlsruhe about big data topics.
In October 2014, I had a talk at Jazoon in Zurich, Switzerland: “A New Front for SOA: Open API and API Management as Game Changer”
Business Perspective – Open API and API Management
Open API represent the leading edge of a new business model, providing innovative ways for companies to expand brand value and routes to market, and create new value chains for intellectual property. In the past, SOA strategies mostly targeted internal users. Open APIs target mostly external partners.
Intelligent Business Process Management Suites (iBPMS) – The Next-Generation BPM for a Big Data WorldPosted in Analytics, Big Data, BPM, Business Intelligence, EAI, ESB, Hadoop, Social Network on August 27th, 2014 by Kai Wähner
In August 2014, I had an interesting talk at ECSA 2014 in Vienna about iBPMS called The Next-Generation BPM for a Big Data World: Intelligent Business Process Management Suites (iBPMS). iBPMS is a term introduced by Gartner some time ago: Magic Quadrant for Intelligent Business Process Management Suites.
I want to share the slides with you. As always, I appreciate every comment or feedback…
Abstract: iBPMS / iBPM
Here is the abstract of my session about iBPMS:
TIBCO BusinessWorks (ESB) for Integration of Salesforce (CRM), SAP (ERP) and Tibbr (Social Enterprise Network)Posted in EAI, ESB, SOA on August 18th, 2014 by Kai Wähner
This short video shows how you can integrate different technologies and enterprise software easily with TIBCO Businessworks (ESB).
The demo shows live development and integration of Salesforce (CRM), SAP (ERP) and Tibbr (TIBCO’s Social Enterprise Network).
Any other technology or application can be integrated in the same easy way with the same concepts. Visual development, mapping, testing and debugging is shown. No coding is required.

Today, I had a talk about “Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP) Revisited in 2014″ at Java Forum Stuttgart 2014, a great conference for developers and architects with 1600 attendees.
Enterprise Integration Patterns
Data exchanges between companies increase a lot. Hence, the number of applications which must be integrated increases, too. The emergence of service-oriented architectures and cloud computing boost this even more. The realization of these integration scenarios is a complex and time-consuming task because different applications and services do not use the same concepts, interfaces, data formats and technologies.
“Hadoop and Data Warehouse (DWH) – Friends, Enemies or Profiteers? What about Real Time?” – Slides (including TIBCO Examples) from JAX 2014 OnlinePosted in Analytics, Big Data, Business Intelligence, Cloud, ESB, Hadoop on May 13th, 2014 by Kai Wähner
Slides from my talk “Hadoop and Data Warehouse (DWH) – Friends, Enemies or Profiteers? What about Real Time?” at JAX 2014 (Twitter #jaxcon) in Mainz are online. JAX is a great conference with interesting topics and many good speakers!
Content (Data Warehouse, Business Intelligence, Hadoop, Stream Processing)
Big data represents a significant paradigm shift in enterprise technology. Big data radically changes the nature of the data management profession as it introduces new concerns about the volume, velocity and variety of corporate data. New business models based on predictive analytics, such as recommendation systems or fraud detection, are relevant more than ever before. Apache Hadoop seems to become the de facto standard for implementing big data solutions. For that reason, solutions from many different vendors emerged on top of Hadoop.
Realtime Event Logging, Complex Event Processing (CEP) and Monitoring with Talend’s Unified Platform 5.4 (DI, ESB, DQ, MDM, BPM) using ElasticSearch, Logstash and KibanaPosted in EAI, ESB on December 17th, 2013 by Kai Wähner
Your mission-critical projects need complex event processing, realtime management and monitoring. Talend 5.4 (released in December 2014, https://www.talend.com) offers a great new feature: Talend Event Logging. It allows logging, processing and monitoring of all technical events and business data. In this article, I will focus on how to process, filter and monitor business data. You can find more details about monitoring technical events and logs (e.g. OSGi events of the ESB container) in Talend’s documentation (www.help.talend.com). This new feature is very powerful, but also extendable to fit custom requirements. You can solve and monitor much more complex scenarios than the one I describe here.
Slides online: “Enterprise Integration Patterns Revisited” – Talk at OBJEKTspektrum Information Days 2013Posted in EAI, ESB on November 19th, 2013 by Kai Wähner
I had a brand new talk at OBJEKTspektrum Information Days 2013 in Frankfurt and Munich this week: Enterprise Integration Patterns Revisited. I wanna share my slides with you.
Applications have to be integrated – no matter which programming languages, databases or infrastructures are used. However, the realization of integration scenarios is a complex and time-consuming task. Over 10 years ago, Enteprise Integration Patterns (EIP) became the world wide defacto standard for splitting huge, complex integration scenarios into smaller recurring problems. These patterns appear in almost every integration project.
This session revisits EIPs and gives shows status quo. After giving a short introduction with several examples, the audience will learn which EIPs still have a „right to exist“, and which new EIPs emerged in the meantime. The end of the session shows different frameworks and tools which already implement EIPs and therefore help the architect to reduce efforts a lot.
JBoss OneDayTalk 2013: “NoSQL Integration with Apache Camel – MongoDB, CouchDB, Neo4j, Cassandra, HBase, Hazelcast, Riak, etc.”Posted in EAI, ESB, Java / JEE on October 24th, 2013 by Kai Wähner
JBoss OneDayTalk is a great annual event around open source development. I have done a talk about “NoSQL Integration with Apache Camel”. This blog post shows you the updated slide deck of this talk.
SQL cannot solve several problems emerging with big data. A distributed, fault-tolerant architecture is necessary. NoSQL comes to the rescue, but therefore it does not use SQL as its query language or give full ACID guarantees. Thus, in the future you will have to learn new concepts and integrate these NoSQL databases as you integrate SQL databasestoday. The open source integration framework Apache Camel is already prepared for this challenging task.
