SOA Infrastructure - Back to Future, No. 2

SOA Infrastructure - Back to Future, No. 2

June 12, 2009 0 Comments

Is anyone talking about the enterprise service bus (ESB) anymore? My Google Alerts are slow and my Google Adwords program isn't performing. Could it be that everyone already has one? Is it assumed that everyone has one? WARNING: shameless promotion...

Did you know that Progress Software introduced the industry's first ESB? Actually, independent research firm, Forrester Research, Inc., named Progress® Sonic® ESB as a leader in the enterprise service bus (ESB) market in "The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Service Buses, Q1 2009" report. That seems like a big deal to me but yet I continue to have problems finding someone to blog or talk about it. Thankfully there's Hub Vandervoort, CTO, Progress Software. If you haven't had the opportunity to hear him speak, you are missing out. He's not only smart, he's personable, engaging, and always leaves me wanting to learn more.

This week I'd like to share a video that he did over a year ago. In this 4 minute video, Hub talks about what an ESB is, why you should deploy an ESB, and he also shares what makes the Sonic ESB unique.

Interested in more? Read Chapter 4 of Service Oriented Architecture: Getting IT Done Right. Chapter 4, entitled Enterprise Service Buses, is authored by Hub. In this chapter Hub shares his collective experience of working with over 300 ESB end-users, and summarizes the styles and applications of ESB technology.
