  • The solution to legacy application woes

    Legacy applications are one of the most difficult issues to face within IT. A rip-and-replace approach is expensive and thus difficult to justify; plus, it tends to interrupt operations. Meanwhile, the ageing software lingers in accounting's ledgers, overstays its welcome in sales and causes poor network performance throughout the organisation.

  • Virtualisation: Building blocks to achieve benefits

    This week I was invited to attend a gathering at Collabworks, an organization focused on the virtual enterprise. Collabworks believes that the kinds of savings and efficiencies that virtualization has brought to IT can be brought to entire companies by reorganizing workplaces along the lines of what has happened in IT (virtualization to remove dependencies, focus on service outputs rather than processes, and use of specialized external resources rather than internal employees). As IT only accounts for around three percent of total corporate costs, if Collabworks' theory is right, there's clearly great opportunity for enterprises.

  • A guide to Network Access Control authentication

    In the network access control products we tested, authentication varies from very strong to very weak, and every point in-between. When starting down your path of evaluating NAC products, decide very early what kind of authentication mechanism you want, if any.

  • Will the cloud take your IT job?

    As software becomes more complex, and demands the scalability of the cloud, IT's auto mechanic of today, the sysadmin, will disappear. Tomorrow's sysadmin will be more like a physician, says CIO.com's Bernard Golden.

  • Guide to SAN and NAS virtualisation

    How storage virtualisation technologies allow you to keep pace with ever-increasing storage requirements while maintaining high availability and service levels

  • Internal clouds: More than virtualising servers

    Less than two percent of enterprises have deployed internal cloud computing networks, and vendors are just beginning to provide the proper tools necessary to build them.

  • Ten free open source programs to treasure

    Want to know the best 10 free open source products? Here's a pretty good list

  • Backup strategy - virtualisation changes everything

    Enterprises have had long-standing approaches to backup, using methodologies that have been well-honed through constant use. But there's a new game in town; the arrival of virtualisation as a resource within organisations has meant that system administrators have had to change their thinking to accommodate the new technology.

  • EPEAT's progress

    EPEAT has stronger support from the US government and HP has just announced a raft of EPEAT-registered kits.

  • Keeping your network on its best behaviour

    Network behaviour analysis is an increasingly popular tool for detecting unknown or hard-to-spot threats and anomalous traffic.

The Forrester Wave: Enterprise Service Bus

Forrester evaluated leading enterprise service bus (ESB) vendors across more than 100 criteria and found that Cape Clear Software and BEA Systems were the top two performers overall. Other vendors in the leader category (from the highest score down) are Software AG, Progress (Sonic), IBM, and IONA Technologies. These vendors all scored well in the connection, mediation, and control and change categories. Close behind are two strong performers, Fiorano and PolarLake. The two first-time entrants in this evaluation (Software AG and IBM) both scored exceptionally well and highlight the ability of larger organizations to quickly ramp up new product functionality. Bottom line: This evaluation covers eight strong performers in the ESB space, and clients will have to carefully match their specific requirements to the detailed list of vendor features provided in this report.
