Architecture Evolution: From Mainframes to Service-oriented Architecture
Product architecture is going to do much more than simply provide the technical functionality, the user interface, and the platform support. It is going to

distributed architecture  (CORBA), Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB), distributed common object model (DCOM), and remote method invocation/remote procedure call (RMI/RPC), all of which are predecessors of service-oriented architecture (SOA). Generally, if using a distributed-object architecture allows a customer to write programs that are faster, larger, more powerful, and more robust, then it is definitely worth the effort despite the inevitable challenge of controlling such a dynamic environment with many moving parts. Since customers

Traditional document management systems are geared toward control, discipline, and orchestrated workflow. Contrast this with the untamed world of ad hoc processes that drive so many of our activities. In this environment, teams are dynamic and agile. Imposing structure and formal processes almost always results in confusion, resentment, and lost productivity. The needs of distributed teams require a different approach.

Architecture Evolution: From Web-based to Service-oriented Architecture


Traditional enterprise systems have proven difficult to change and extend. The inherent problem of old core code and business logic duplication is part of the reason traditional enterprise resource planning systems have not readily taken to e-commerce.

distributed architecture  program. Formerly called a distributed objects architecture, the SOA term was coined at the turn of the century as Web services and Internet standards were evolving (as mentioned earlier in this series, Common Object Request Broker Architecture [CORBA] and distributed common object model [DCOM] are examples of earlier SOAs). Gartner defines SOA as an application topology in which the business logic of the application is organized in modules (services) with clear identity, purpose, and programmatic-access Read More

Establishing Enterprise Architecture Governance


This article discusses the issues around implementing architecture governance, and what constitutes viable approaches to establishing effective governance processes.

Without a master plan, the overall IT environment; platforms, components and applications, is difficult to understand, let alone manage. The difficulties many organizations had in effectively preparing for Y2K attests to the dangers of developing and maintaining applications in the absence of such a plan. If Enterprise Architecture is the basis for this 'master plan', architecture governance Read More

The Agentless Backup/Recovery Architecture: How It Works to Reduce Costs, Bolster Security, and Simplify Scaling in Remote Office Environments


IT managers today face plenty of problems when it comes to protecting remote office data—problems that agentless architecture could eliminate. Many organizations outsource their data protection, which can be costly. But an agentless architecture disk-to-disk (D2D) software solution can offer your business bottom-line benefits that range from lower administrative costs to pay-as-you-grow scalability and increased security.

Technology Challenges of Distributed, Multiplayer Virtual Environments


To play any popular online computer game, all a user needs is a computer and an Internet connection. But there’s a lot more going on behind the scenes than this gamer may realize. In order to interact in a shared virtual environment, the system the user connects to requires technology capable of creating, operating, and modifying persistent, distributed, three-dimensional virtual worlds.
