Fiorina at eWorld: HP to Help Customers Adopt Web Services, Bridge Competing J2EE and .NET Worlds

Fiorina at eWorld: HP to Help Customers Adopt Web Services, Bridge Competing J2EE and .NET Worlds

(March 4, 2003) - During her keynote address at the eighth annual BEA eWorld conference, HP chairman and CEO Carly Fiorina focused on the critical role Web services management will play in overcoming IT complexity, unifying systems, and accelerating a return on IT investments.

HP also announced the creation of a dedicated Web Services Management team to extend the HP OpenView software suite for simplified Web services management. The team, reporting to Nora Denzel, senior vice president of software, will lead HP's efforts to help customers provision and manage Web services with the choice and flexibility to adopt future innovations, including a management interface for J2EE and .NET components. The team also will continue HP's work in Web services standards, including W3C, OASIS, Liberty Alliance, OGSA (Open Grid Service Architecture) and WS-I.org.

"Simply put, management is the next major barrier to mainstream Web services adoption," said Fiorina. "Management cannot be an afterthought in computing systems. It must be part of the design and deployment of IT infrastructures. Just as the New Economy didn't toss out the fundamentals of business, the Internet and Web services don't toss out your existing infrastructure or the fundamentals of how you run IT. We see Web services as a way to help customers turn complexity into simplicity, bring order from chaos and accelerate return on IT."

Fiorina unveiled several investments that HP is making to overcome management barriers to full-scale Web services adoption:

  • HP's Web Services Management team is developing new technologies that enable Web services to be better managed by HP OpenView. In addition, the team is involved in the creation and adoption of standards efforts that enable Web services to be developed while focusing on manageability. They also work to integrate existing Web services standards such as XML, WSML, and UDDI into HP OpenView systems management tools.

  • HP has created a dedicated Web services management and deployment practice for J2EE environments within HP Services. This practice includes more than 500 consultants worldwide that are trained to work with customers to deploy J2EE solutions faster, cheaper, and more effectively. By the end of 2003, the J2EE practice will include more than 1,000 people - all focused on developing repeatable J2EE solutions.

  • Additionally, HP is expanding its market-leading HP OpenView software suite into the realm of Web services management. HP OpenView will help customers manage and optimize all industry-leading application servers and Web services environments. HP has developed a suite of software components, the HP OpenView Web Services Management Engine, which allows customers to intercept Web services requests and actively manage the service as opposed to the platform where it resides. Also, HP offers the HP OpenView Transaction Analyzer, which uses APIs, co-developed with BEA, to monitor application transactions. In addition, HP has an HP OpenView Smart Plug-in for monitoring and managing BEA WebLogic Servers.

  • Working closely with partners, HP plans to make a major contribution to standards efforts, allowing companies to incorporate management capabilities in Web services, rather than take a "build later" approach. Over the next few months, HP will contribute a Web services management framework to the OASIS Distributed Management Organization and work with it towards a Web services management standard. This framework is a way to model and design relationships and interacts with a Web services environment. It is designed to enable companies to architect "management-ready" systems for out-of-the-box integration with top management tools -- all based on Web services standards.

    More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
