Top Stories by Jason Bloomberg

Jason Bloomberg, Chief Evangelist for EnterpriseWeb, published his article Does Agile Architecture = Agile + Architecture? in a recent edition of the Cutter IT Journal, published monthly by the Cutter Consortium. In this article, author Jason Bloomberg promotes the use of SOA governance and policies to distribute metadata policy representations to ESBs, XML, and other policy enforcement points. He asserts that this level of control actually creates new levels of flexibility. Once this foundation is achieved, Bloomberg suggests that cloud governance can follow the same pattern. The article provides an overview of Bloomberg’s recent book, The Agile Architecture Revolution, and is also a precursor to his new work on Agent-Oriented Architecture, forthcoming from EnterpriseWeb. The article is available for free from the Cutter Consortium Web site (registration required). ... (more)

Bringing Intelligence to REST

Whether you're a Cloud Computing aficionado, an enterprise integration specialist, or an IT executive, it's hard to have a conversation today without mention of REST.

Take those basic Web patterns, extend them to ge... (more)

But for today, let’s score ourselves one last time on last year’s predictions and make three new ones for 2014. 2012’s Predictions for 2013 Cloudwashing reaches a level of desperation. We predi...

Securing the Internet of Things: Is the IoT DoA?

Your alarm clock jars you awake. You stumble to the kitchen, fire up your coffee maker, grab some milk from the fridge, and pour yourself a bowl of cereal. You turn down the thermostat before you head to your car. You park your sedan in your usual spot in the garage at work, and you enter your office building by waving your badge at the door. Finally, you drop into your chair and fire up your computer. A mundane story, one millions of people trudge through every day with only minor variations. But here’s the question: how many Internet-connected devices did you interact with bet... (more)

Google’s Enterprise Problem

Compared to the insanity of today’s political environment, the world of Cloud Computing seems downright placid. The calmness on the surface, however, often hides turbulence underneath. Take the hullabaloo surrounding comments that Greg DeMichillie, Director of Product Management, Cloud Platform at Google made on a recent GigaOM podcast – or more precisely, comments that he didn’t make. GigaOM’s Derrick Harris asked DeMichillie whether Google Cloud Platform might go the way of, say Google Reader, an example of a product Google killed in spite of its market traction because Google...
