I've been on the road since the end of May and I have also moved, so needless to say, I'm behind on my blogging and tweeting responsibilities. I mean, you know you're busy when you don't have time to tweet!
My colleagues have been out there though, doing some great things. We've got some early trials going on with Actional being evaluated at a few IONA Orbix (CORBA) customers. Since the team has tweeted this, I thought I'd blog about it!
As Frank Lynch said, "CORBA users will be mighty pleased to have Actional visibility, an no performance penalty to boot." Yep, couldn't a' said it better myself.
Why is Actional/Orbix integration important?
On that last point, I've got a bit of a new role here. Or, better said, my role is being further formalized as Actional Product Evangelist. I'm very pleased to have the responsibility for socially-marketing some of the new integrations we are delivering to market. In particular, those integrations between products in the Progress portfolio and Actional, and between Actional and some partners. I'm hoping I can have a real impact with this formalization to my role, as well as some fun introducing Actional to some new technologies.
That said, my initial focus is going to be on IONA's Orbix, Progress OpenEdge, and Sun Glassfish. Glassfish support has been released, and both IONA and OpenEdge are in early trials (pre-beta). As I get organized around communicating these solutions, feel free to drop me a line with questions if you are interested in seeing what we've got!
Any existing Orbix customers interested in the Actional integration should contact your sales rep... or me. You're required to have Orbix 6 or later for Java (for now... we're working on the C++ and Java/C++ for Orbix 3, but they're not ready to trial yet).
PS Why not follow Maneesh Sahu (Sr. Solution Architect, Partners), Dion Picco (Engineering) , Frank Lynch (Sr. Solution Architect, East), or Marcelo Jabali (Sr. Solution Architect, West)?
