Nastel - Transaction Tracking Within Messaging Infrastructure
4/26/2013 9:05:14 AM
A constellation of business requirements places new demands on IT professionals. The rapid speed with which the corporate operating environment moves has been well documented. Messaging middleware has transformed the way applications communicate and exchange information. Application integration has brought about significant advantages; however it has also brought about a need to track intangible, transient digital assets – business transactions. As the IT complexity grows, compliance and integration needs have also evolved.
Nastel - Running Multiple Versions and Taking Advantage of WebSphere MQ 7.1 and 7.5
4/26/2013 9:04:34 AM
Since IBM released two versions of WebSphere MQ in close proximity to each other, it is important to understand how to best utilize the benefits of both versions and how to get them to work together with previous versions. This white paper will give you a better understanding of how to get them to all get along.
In the Overview white paper, we discussed the key highlights of multiple version support for WebSphere MQ 7.1 and 7.5. In this paper, we are going to go into more detail. Let’s review the meaning of coexistence multiple installatioon. The key component is that you can install multiple versions of WebSphere MQ on the same server at the same time. This is something that you could not do in the past.
Nastel - Issues and Considerations in Deploying and Managing WebSphere MQ
4/26/2013 9:02:53 AM
WebSphere MQ was developed in the early 1990’s to fill a need in many applications for Asynchronous Application to Application Communication. This concept is still a primary requirement of many applications, including Service Oriented Architecture and Cloud computing. Much like email provides asynchronous communication between individuals, WebSphere MQ provided the ability for applications on disparate platforms to communicate easier than ever before, even across companies. Many applications were designed to leverage the wealth of data stored on legacy systems without needing to rewrite the interfaces to that data or to disperse it to multiple systems.
Nastel - Introduction to WebSphere MQ 7.1 and 7.5
4/26/2013 9:02:04 AM
Over 95% of the Fortune 1000 companies use WebSphere MQ for their messaging system. In fact, it is the most popular system for messaging across multiple platforms (85% market share). This paper reviews and summarizes the highlights of the recent releases of IBM’s WebSphere MQ 7.1 and 7.5. It is the first in a series of papers around the current changes in WebSphere MQ.
Nastel - Demystifying Middleware for DevOps
4/26/2013 9:01:10 AM
DevOps is a hot topic right now, and for good reason. Today’s application environments have become far too complex to deploy and manage with silo teams and stand-alone tools. Instead, they require coordination and collaboration across virtually all silos, and this is typically accomplished with teams of senior specialists with skill sets spanning Development and Operations. Tools play a key role in DevOps, as the right tools can be a bridge supplying a “common language” across teams with diverse skillsets and “technology languages.”
Nastel - A Unified View Across WebSphere DataPower and MQ, Solace and TIBCO Messaging
4/26/2013 9:00:16 AM
The complexity of one management system per messaging infrastructure is too costly and when these infrastructures are interconnected, the management systems become ineffective. These firms require one place to monitor, visualize and analyze the status of applications and services shared across the enterprise environment. However, the skill set required to manage each middleware technology is often different and a single business flow can traverse multiple different transports and support teams. This makes unified monitoring of messages across the infrastructure and the ability to track them and rapidly identify and correct problems anywhere in that flow an essential element in improving service and reducing cost—perhaps, even a necessity for survival
Navigating the Top Six Business Challenges of Delivering Software as a Service Sponsored by: SafeNet
4/19/2013 4:09:26 PM
For Enterprise organizations, utilization of software as a service (SaaS) applications means easier budgeting, faster deployment, and reduced risk. For cloud service providers and established on-premise software publishers, SaaS presents a new opportunity to give customers what they want—while ensuring recurring revenue streams and exploring new markets. The future of software delivery is clear. It’s the path to software monetization in the cloud that becomes foggy for both cloud service providers and established software publishers. While delivering software as a service opens many doors for software vendors, it also presents a new set of challenges. This paper explores the top six challenges software publishers are faced with, and presents a quick and easy way for SaaS providers to define their service catalogs, provision and control user access at the feature level, measure service usage for billing and business intelligence purposes, and instantly adapt their service catalog to embrace new and evolving market opportunities.
Reduce CFPB Compliance Risk and Improve Collections with Speech Analytics
4/17/2013 2:03:35 PM
Collections contact centers and Accounts Receivables Management (ARM) firms face a constant challenge: being able to maximize payments while staying compliant and up to date with new rules and regulations. Speech analytics can help ease this challenge by analyzing every agent contact – either during or after the call – to eliminate compliance risk, improve agent performance, and increase recovery rates. This case study highlights how one ARM firm was able to leverage speech analytics to proactively reduce complaints and prepare for Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) audits.
The Economics of Scale-Out Storage
4/16/2013 10:40:17 AM
Scale-out storage technologies have rapidly gained popularity over the past several years, successfully crossing the chasm from niche technology to mainstream enterprise solution. As this shift occurs, an increasing number of enterprises are seeking to understand the advantages of the newer technology when it comes to the storage of exploding amounts of unstructured data.
Today’s enterprise faces a myriad of choices when selecting storage technologies. For a large and quickly growing segment of storage applications - those characterized by the need to reliably store large volumes of unstructured data - an increasing number of enterprises are turning to "scale-out" storage technologies.
Introduction to Red Hat Storage Server Architecture
4/16/2013 10:38:47 AM
Over the past ten years, enterprises have seen enormous gains in scalability, flexibility, and affordability as they migrated from proprietary, monolithic server architectures to architectures that are virtualized, open source, standardized, and commoditized.
Unfortunately, storage has not kept pace with computing. The proprietary, monolithic, shared- all, and scale-up solutions that dominate the storage industry today do not deliver the scalabil- ity, flexibility, and economics that modern datacenter and cloud computing environments need in a hyper-growth, virtualized, and increasingly cloud-based world. Red Hat Storage was created to address this gap.

A Common Service Orchestration Platform for Unified Communications
Internet Telephony Magazine
4/10/2013 8:23:44 AM
With the proliferation of IP, the demand for unified communications, and given the rise of the ‘smartphone,’ the industry has founded the premise that the telephone network is now a platform that can support various third-party applications; which has left communication service providers to rethink how they use communications. The ability to leverage IP and pull together a unified offering for sale or resale is still tougher than ever. Shango has established a common service orchestration platform for unified communications to help.
