Smart Healthcare Solutions- WTC 2010, Day 3

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Presentation by: Naveen Nagraj

The conference was about to be wrapped up and the concluding tone was set in by Naveen Nagraj’s presentation on Smart Healthcare Solutions by IBM Health Integration Framework. The IBM Health Information Framework (HIF) is an open standards-based framework built on the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) provides healthcare specific reference architectures, a suite of tools, portlets for presentation layer.

Naveen in his session precisely discussed how this framework has been designed to give healthcare providers, healthcare benefit organizations and public health & pharmaceutical companies the flexibility to integrate and manage clinical and administrative business applications independently of the underlying computing platform.

The seminar addressed different healthcare solutions offered by IBM that cater to local and global needs based on HIF offerings, and how the Electronic Mater Patient Index for de-duplication and interoperability, the WBSF payer pack, transformation engines and application adapters built on healthcare standards such as HIPAA EDI, HL7 and IHE integration profiles help reduce development time and lower the cost.

What makes WebSphere eXtreme so essential? WTC 2010, Day-3

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Presentation by: Debasish Banerjee

IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale, an essential for elastic scalability and next-generation cloud environments operates as an in-memory grid that can store application state or data in a consistent, dynamic, partitioned, replicated cache hosted on multiple servers.

This session on the 3rd day of WTC 2010 by Debasish Banerjee provided a sound introduction to WebSphere eXtreme Scale, IBM’s state-of-the-art distributed caching solution. The principle of operation of WXS was explained with special emphasis on linear scalability, built-in elasticity and high availability.

The powerful programming models associated with WebSphere eXtreme Scale was explored with their domain of applicability including massively parallel grid programming.  The seminar discussed the common use cases of WebSphere eXtreme Scale along with best practices and customer success stories.

The presentation revolved around the idea of WebSphere eXtreme Scale being elastic, linearly scalable, distributed cache for building high performance, data-intensive applications.

ESB implementation by telco operators- WTC 2010, Day-3

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Presentation by: Amit Tuli and Shishir Narain

System Management of all the applications is useful but is essential for ESB as “it sits in the middle” and any outage in ESB (Enterprise Service Bus) impacts the business services directly.

Based on this experience with multiple ESB implementations across various Indian telecom vendors, IBM proposed a light weight but comprehensive System Management Framework for ESB at WTC 2010. The seminar was led by Amit Tuli and Shishir Narain.

The talk was followed by a discussion on the rationale behind developing the framework. System management for ESB has evolved from multiple SOA implementations in India geography and hence in consequence ESB products don’t provide out-of-box monitoring features and Centralised Bus Usage statistics are not available. Secure MQ Administration with useful features like copying messages, deleting “n” messages is also not possible.

This framework has been successfully applied in most prominent telecom providers in India like Bharti Airtel, Vodafone Essar and IDEA Cellular and is designed to work non-intrusively, taking minimum resources, configurable and can readily be re-used with any ESB implementation. It has been applied again and again in various integration solutions (like transformation of various lines of businesses) among these accounts.

Cloud Computing is Social – WTC 2010, Day-3

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Presented by:  Parvatina Rambabu and Alwyn Lobo

Cloud computing is about the confluence of the social networking of human beings and the social networking of machines. This session at WTC 2010 by Parvatina Rambabu and Alwyn Lobo discussed how to enable enterprise architects to weave together service domains with specific governance, security and management constraints into a federated fabric.

The rapid improvement of the capacity of online connectivity gave birth to cloud computing and the future will be federated as SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) deployments grow from focused efforts around specific business using cases into enterprise-spanning environments, increasingly reaching beyond enterprise boundaries into clouds. Hence, a federated approach to realizing those large-scale, multi-domain systems has become important.

Parvatina and Alwyn in their session described federation principles and discussed real-world user cases to demonstrate support for Service Federation Management in IBM’s Connectivity products, centered around WebSphere Service Registry and Repository.

Virtualization in computing environment- WTC 2010, Day-2

Monday, July 26th, 2010

Presented by: Seema Joshi and Sukukar Subburaj

As the second day at WTC 2010 progressed, the tone of the conference shifted to virtualization in computing environment with Seema Joshi’s and Sukukar Subburaj’s taking their session on WebSphere Virtual Enterprise.

Virtualization is a broad term that refers to the abstraction of computing resources. Businesses, sinking in the concept are increasingly adopting virtualization in their server farms, storage and networks to gain the benefits of simplification, consolidation and flexibility.

IBM Virtualization Solutions provide a logical rather than physical view of data, computing power, storage capacity and other resources. The session at WTC 2010 extended the virtualization concept a step deeper to the middleware applications hosted in the data center and provided necessary information about adopting application infrastructure virtualization in an IT organization.

It covered a technical overview on Application Infrastructure Virtualization, business benefits of bringing Virtualization technology to Application layer and how it augments the value of server virtualization briefly.

Seema and Sukukar also spoke about the features, capabilities and key components of WebSphere Virtual Enterprise and Management of Resource distribution based on priority, in the seminar.

The discussion wrapped up with few case studies on Reference Implementation.

Cloud Computing is trendy- WTC 2010, day-2

Monday, July 26th, 2010

Presented by: Vijay K Sukthankar

Cloud computing is all the rage. In Gartner’s words, “It’s become the phrase du jour,”.  This session at WTC 2010 described the traditional environments and how cloud changes the game. It then took the attendees over a discussion on how middleware needs to evolve to stay cost competitive given the new world that is coming.

Vijay K Sukthankar’s session precisely emphasized on the IT delivery flexibility for hybrid environments. It also talked about how long held assumptions are being thrown away causing design assumptions which traditional middleware has been built with to be re-examined.

What’s more was Sukthankar’s views on IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale and how as an in-memory grid, it can help enable environments and applications for cloud technologies with its unique and effective approach to high availability.
