In November 2016, I am at Big Data Spain in Madrid for the first time. A great conference with many awesome speakers and sessions about very hot topics such as Apache Hadoop, Spark Spark, Streaming Processing / Streaming Analytics and Machine Learning. If you are interested in big data, then this conference is for you! My two talks:
Like every year, I attended JavaOne (part of Oracle World) in San Francisco in late September 2016. This is still one of the biggest conferences around the world for technical experts like developers and architects.
I planned to write a blog posts about new trends from the program, exhibition and chats with other attendees. Though, I can make it short: Besides focus on Java platform updates (Java 9, Java EE 8, etc.), I saw three hot topics which are highly related to each other: Microservices, Docker and Cloud. It felt like 80% of non-Java talks were about these three topics. The other 20% were Internet of Things (IoT), DevOps and some other stuff. Middleware was also a hot topic. Not always directly, but I was in several talks focusing on integration, orchestration of microservices, (IoT) gateways.
These days, it seems like everybody is talking about microservices. You can read a lot about it in hundreds of articles and blog posts, but my recommended starting point would be this article by Martin Fowler, which initiated the huge discussion about this new architectural concept. This article is about the challenges, requirements and best practices for creating a good microservices architecture, and what role an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) plays in this game.
Branding and Marketing: EAI vs. SOA vs. ESB vs. Microservices
Let’s begin with a little bit of history about Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) and Enterprise Service Bus to find out why microservices have become so trendy.
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.

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.

Talend has several connectors to integrate SAP systems. However, this guide is no introduction to Talend’s SAP components. Instead, this guide helps to
- understand different alternatives to integrate SAP systems with Talend
- set up a local SAP system
- configure Talend Studio for using SAP components
- use Talend’s SAP wizard
- run a first Talend Job which connects to SAP
All further required information and example use cases for Talend’s SAP components should be available in the Talend component guide at www.help.talend.com. If that’s not the case, please create a JIRA Documentation ticket (https://jira.talendforge.org/browse/DOCT)!
Now let’s take a look at different alternatives for integration of SAP systems with Talend.
