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).

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In their Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, and Mark Lav...
"NetApp's vision is how we help organizations manage data - delivering the right data in the right place, in the right time, to the people who need it, and doing it agnostic to what the platform is," explained Josh Atwell, Developer Advocate for NetApp, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a common and reliable transmission protocol on the Internet. TCP was introduced in the 70s by Stanford University for US Defense to establish connectivity between distributed systems to maintain a backup of defense information. At the time, TCP was introduced to communicate amongst a selected set of devices for a smaller dataset over shorter distances. As the Internet evolved, however, the number of applications and users, and the types of data accessed and...
The Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), which enables organizations to seamlessly run in a hybrid cloud model (public + private cloud), is here to stay. IDC estimates that the software-defined networking market will be valued at $3.7 billion by 2016. Security is a key component and benefit of the SDDC, and offers an opportunity to build security 'from the ground up' and weave it into the environment from day one. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Reuven Harrison, CTO and Co-Founder of Tufin, ...
Many organizations are now looking to DevOps maturity models to gauge their DevOps adoption and compare their maturity to their peers. However, as enterprise organizations rush to adopt DevOps, moving past experimentation to embrace it at scale, they are in danger of falling into the trap that they have fallen into time and time again. Unfortunately, we've seen this movie before, and we know how it ends: badly.
Kin Lane recently wrote a couple of blogs about why copyrighting an API is not common. I couldn’t agree more that copyrighting APIs is uncommon. First of all, the API definition is just an interface (It is the implementation detail … Continue reading →
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, discussed how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galera MyS...
Your homes and cars can be automated and self-serviced. Why can't your storage? From simply asking questions to analyze and troubleshoot your infrastructure, to provisioning storage with snapshots, recovery and replication, your wildest sci-fi dream has come true. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Dan Florea, Director of Product Management at Tintri, provided a ChatOps demo where you can talk to your storage and manage it from anywhere, through Slack and similar services with...
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world. Get ready to learn the facts: Is there a bias against women in the tech / developer communities? Why are women 50% of the workforce, but hold only 24% of the STEM or IT positions? Some beginnings of what to do about it! In her Day 2 Keynote at 17th Cloud Expo, Sandy Ca...
