Enterprise Agility = Enterprise Asset!

Enterprise Agility – The capability of an Enterprise to respond to the changing market demands in a short span of time, cost effectively. Cost effectiveness is becoming significant in the days where IT is subjected for demands to optimize its operating cost. For an enterprise to accomadate changes cost effectively, it should have built its systems based on pluggable architectures and other elements that ensure agility.

Consider two enterprises A and B. Say for EnterpriseA, for every change it’s should make, it will cost $1000. For EnterpriseB, it is zero dollars. Say for example, every year 10 changes are to be made. For EnterpriseA, it will need $10,000. For EnterpriseB, it will be zero. This $10,000 saving for the EnterpriseB can be considered as an asset!

One dollar saving = One dollar earning!!

Lambda Architecture on Microsoft Azure

Gone are those days when Enterprises will wait for hours and days to look at the dashboards based on the old, stale data. In this fast world of BYOD, fitness gears and flooding of other devices, it is becoming super important  to derive out “actionable” information from huge volume of data / noise that is generated from these devices or any other data sources and act proactively on them  in real-time, to stay competitive.

At the same time, the need for having dashboards and other analytical capabilities based on the quality, cleansed, processed data still very much exists.

With the emergence of more data types and need to handle huge volume, shift is happening from the conventional data warehouse practice to cloud based data processing & management capabilities where high volume batch processing is possible at the optimized cost. Business scenarios demanding the need to process the data in real-time   More

SharePoint 2013 Architectural Trade-Offs

When planning for deploying SharePoint 2013 based Enterprise workloads, it should be done with the consideration / awareness of impact of various architectural decisions what we make. As SharePoint 2013 is a flexible platform providing lots of options in terms of configuration of the existing OOB features and development of custom development solutions to address specific business functional needs, care should be taken when making a particular decision and its impact on overall solution. Even though SharePoint is a matured product, the effectiveness of various business capabilities such as Enterprise Social, Enterprise Search, BI, Document Management, Web Content Management, and Enterprise Content Management that will be delivered based on it, in terms of addressing the business requirements depends on architecture planning. Effectiveness here means performance, security, up-time and other architectural qualities like Scalability, Reliability etc. more ...

Heterogeneous Cloud Integration

Heterogeneous integration is common scenario in the Enterprises where their IT portfolio is based on heterogeneous platforms. Various solution approaches such as message broker, messaging middleware, SOA – service based integration were employed to address heterogeneous integration challenges.

These solution approaches were good when the integration happens on premise, with in the data centers of an Enterprise. Problem here is non-availability of “elasticity”.

With the Enterprises started leveraging cloud platforms extensively for various solution aspects such as elastic computing, storage, it opens new capabilities that can be leveraged for heterogeneous integration. Also, similar to existing on premise scenario, Enterprises are also leveraging multiple cloud platforms to address their business needs. This scenario will pose same integration challenges as those that were faced within on premise datacenters

Within datacenters / on premise, integration products were expected to comply wi…
