Adapting to the Era of Two Speed IT

Glaciers and waterfalls. Both made of water. Both powerful in impact. One robust, enduring (climate change aside) and impenetrable in its protective ability. The other forceful and dynamic, fluid in its ability to exhilarate and be harnessed to generate immense energy. But glaciers travel at…..well, glacial speed.

Getting Collaboration Right in an Emergency

In September this year the USA magazine Government Technology published an article ‘Hard-Won Experience: Lessons from America’s Biggest Disasters and Emergencies’ where four technology leaders with roles in Hurricane Katrina, the Boston Bombings, and Superstorm Sandy were interviewed. As expected their comments were experiential, insightful and useful.

In this blog I’m going to outline some common issues you can run into with Result Caching and how you can apply remote Coherence cache to overcome these issues and optimise performance.

The aim of this blog post is not to detail their full functionalities, but to compare differences in order to ascertain which is the better framework to utilize for unit testing and creating regression test scripts for SOA Suite composites.
