Whitepaper: Distributed Service-Oriented Architectures
Distributed service-oriented architectures allow system architects to create a distributed environment in which applications can interoperate seamlessly. This paper discusses the advantages of building distributed service-oriented architectures and identifies components for successful deployment and management of distributed processes, including Web services.

Whitepaper: Massive Scalability
OSS developers have moved away from monolithic, telecommunications-specific architectures and embraced off-the-shelf multitier architectures and distributed-object middleware. Initiatives such as the OSS through Java Initiative (OSS/J) promote the adoption of a component-based approach to developing OSS solutions. This paper demonstrates OSS/J deployment strategies and patterns that accommodate performance or scalability shortfalls.

Whitepaper: Raising EAI Standards
This paper considers the changing dynamics of the EAI market and how these dynamics are likely to play out, focusing particularly on one aspect that could prove a real paradigm shift—the emergence of standards. The conclusion should be encouraging to any company looking to invest in EAI as a means to deliver improved business integration.

Webcast: How to Manage Enterprise-Scale SOA Deployments
In the fast-changing world of SOA, definitions are beginning to blur at a time when clarity is ever more critical. This Webcast will clarify the roles of ESBs and SOA management tools in operating reliable enterprise-scale SOA deployments.

Webcast: The Shortest Path to Enterprise SOA
For years, the rate of business change has outstripped IT's capacity to manage it. New technologies, changing regulations and continual M&A activity have stretched IT architectures to the breaking point. This Webcast shows you that what is needed now is a new approach, one which supports pervasive interoperability—not just invasive integration.
