Infravio Markets "Intentional SOA"

Miko Matsumura Selected to Drive Strategy That He Named

Infravio, Inc. has announced that Miko Matsumura has joined the company as vice president of marketing, highlighting the industry’s shift towards Intentional SOA, an architectural approach to enterprise SOA Web Services design focused on capturing the business value of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA).

The former vice president of product marketing at Systinet Corporation, co-creator of SOA Blueprints at The Middleware Company, and the original Java Evangelist at Sun Microsystems, Matsumura will direct the company’s marketing programs and strategy as the company accelerates its successes with customers in the SOA Web Services market.

“We are honored to welcome Miko to the Infravio team,” stated Srinivas Balasubramanian, founder and CEO at Infravio. “Miko’s experience at SOA companies like Systinet brings great value to us, and his decision to join Infravio is a testament to our vision, our innovative products, and market potential.”

Added Matsumura, “My research of the SOA space shows Infravio has been consistently customer-focused and has dedicated over 100 man years in Web Services product development. These qualities make Infravio SOA metadata capabilities ideal for the business-focused requirements of Intentional SOA. Infravio has led some of the largest and most sophisticated SOA Web Services projects in the industry, delivering innovative technologies like Web Service Delivery Contracts.”

Intentional SOA, a methodology devised by Matsumura, is about ensuring the business value of SOA using best practices and principles. It raises key questions designed to help SOA builders stay on course during design and implementation. Intentional SOA moves beyond ad hoc Web Services enablement, mandating a strategic, enterprise-wide view that directly addresses the gamut of business, technology, security, and governance concerns posed by SOA.

 “As more organizations move from SOA investigation to implementation, Intentional SOA emerges as a critical factor in securing the reuse, agility and runtime governance advantages promised by SOA,” said Mary Coleman, Board of Directors member of Infravio. “Miko’s immersion in diverse standards, strategies and perspectives of SOA Web Services gives him a deep understanding of the market, making him a key hire for Infravio in its market expansion.”

Before joining Infravio, Matsumura emerged as an industry thought leader at The Middleware Company, where he was a co-creator responsible for building the partner program for SOA Blueprints, the first complete vendor-neutral specification of an SOA application set, supported by BEA, Borland, HP, Microsoft, Oracle, Sun Microsystems, Veritas and others.

At Systinet, Matsumura worked with the executive team and offshore development center on product development, product strategy, and outbound marketing, including representing the company at industry events. Prior to his tenure at The Middleware Company and Systinet, Matsumura held the position of Chief Java Evangelist for Sun Microsystems, where he was a visible spokesperson for Java technologies and worked closely with Java ISVs and licensees to further the developer community.

Before Sun, Matsumura worked at Wired Digital (acquired by Lycos) and the Well online community (acquired by Salon). He has also worked extensively with software start-up companies, including Biztone and Kalepa Networks (acquired by Semio) raising more than 12 million in capital for Java start-ups. Matsumura is currently a limited partner with Focus Ventures and was an advisor to the Asia Java Fund, as well as start-ups TogetherSoft (acquired by Borland), Dejima (acquired by Sybase and Kendara (acquired by Excite).

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...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
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.
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 ...
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.
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how...
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, ...
Containers, microservices and DevOps are all the rage lately. You can read about how great they are and how they’ll change your life and the industry everywhere. So naturally when we started a new company and were deciding how to architect our app, we went with microservices, containers and DevOps. About now you’re expecting a story of how everything went so smoothly, we’re now pushing out code ten times a day, but the reality is quite different.
"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.
