Everware-CBDI Announces Commercial Availability of the Agile Service Factory (ASF)

Everware-CBDI Inc., the leading independent source of best practices for Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), announced today the commercial availability of the Agile Service Factory™. ASF enables rapid supply of high-quality software services needed to develop and compose large, complex applications. ASF directly addresses the challenges of scaling agile development to the enterprise level, reduces risk, and dramatically accelerates solution delivery.

Agile development methods have recently gained wide acceptance; however, in most cases successes have been on relatively small projects. Major challenges have inhibited enterprise level adoption with multiple agile teams developing pieces of complex applications. These challenges include standards for consistency, cross-team coordination, and overlapping responsibilities. The Agile Service Factory builds on agile best practices such as Scaled Agile Framework® with a model-driven, pattern-based Architecture Runway that manages consistency and sharing across portfolios, programs and projects. ASF enables the incremental production of software services that can be composed, mashed-up and packaged as APIs. It is designed to operate as an integrated component of an agile development environment. Warren Ellmore, President of Everware-CBDI North America, explains, “The Agile Service Factory enables large scale agile development by delivering and evolving the Architecture Runway, allowing functional sprints to concentrate on developing business logic and dramatically reducing refactoring.”

The ASF Architecture Runway is an enterprise platform for Common Core Code (C3), a code base (100% open and industry standard) that embeds standards and patterns that are applied across the application portfolio, including access to data, infrastructure and common business services. C3 is delivered to development teams as an architecture platform to build upon. It evolves in parallel with the sprints and accelerates development because C3 usually represents 60-80% of the full solution codebase.

CloudEXPO New York 2018, colocated with DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.
DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
"We do one of the best file systems in the world. We learned how to deal with Big Data many years ago and we implemented this knowledge into our software," explained Jakub Ratajczak, Business Development Manager at MooseFS, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
All zSystem customers have a significant new business opportunity to extend their reach to new customers and markets with new applications and services, and to improve the experience of existing customers. This can be achieved by exposing existing z assets (which have been developed over time) as APIs for accessing Systems of Record, while leveraging mobile and cloud capabilities with new Systems of Engagement applications. In this session, we will explore business drivers with new Node.js apps ...
Digital Transformation is well underway with many applications already on the cloud utilizing agile and devops methodologies. Unfortunately, application security has been an afterthought and data breaches have become a daily occurrence. Security is not one individual or one's team responsibility. Raphael Reich will introduce you to DevSecOps concepts and outline how to seamlessly interweave security principles across your software development lifecycle and application lifecycle management. With ...
Two apparently distinct movements are in the process of disrupting the world of enterprise application development: DevOps and Low-Code. DevOps is a cultural and organizational shift that empowers enterprise software teams to deliver better software quicker – in particular, hand-coded software. Low-Code platforms, in contrast, provide a technology platform and visual tooling that empower enterprise software teams to deliver better software quicker -- with little or no hand-coding required. ...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addres...
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the p...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
