Whether it’s getting your name out into the market place or keeping your people in the loop, visibility is an age old challenge in business.

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. And so it is with IT, with two speeds of technology driving the growth and sustainability of enterprise organisations.
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.

At times where there is high concurrency or large volumes of data associated with services, service architects use an in-built feature of OSB (188.8.131.52.0 +) – Result Caching – to reduce the load on systems and allow applications to scale horizontally. 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.
