Enterprise Strategy Group Research Bolsters Case for Employing Top-Down Services Modeling in Dynamic SOA Application Environments

New Report Details Shortfalls of Existing Application Management Solutions

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearApp, http://www.clearapp.com/, a provider of comprehensive application service management (ASM) for J2EE-based composite applications, today announced that new research from industry analyst firm Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) advocates the adoption of application service modeling capabilities as the future of Application Management technology. The paper, entitled "What's Next in Application Management: Using Modeling to Optimize Composite Applications in Dynamic Environments" is available for download free from ClearApp's website. http://www.clearapp.com/misc/index.php?whitepaper

The report concludes that lack of business context is the biggest limitation inherent in today's major enterprise systems and applications management solutions. Analysts Bob Laliberte and Brian Babineau advocate there is a need to automate service discovery and dependency mapping to ensure that today's complex business services are viewed holistically within heterogeneous, n-tier application environments. In ESG's view, this gap between services and infrastructure will only become more acute as additional layers of abstraction are added by tomorrow's server virtualization and SOA middleware advances.

After presenting a short history of application management, ESG systematically examines the limitations of alternatives to application service modeling. From transaction tracing to business process management to configuration management databases (CMDBs), the report argues that all fail to deliver a complete, consolidated map of the service dependencies shared among complex composite applications, their code, and infrastructure components -- from top to bottom. Similar to how modeling has been successfully deployed in network management, it now should be leveraged in application management as well.

"This trend presents an opportunity to OEM technology, and ESG believes that ClearApp's modeling engine could be integrated with many of the existing application management solutions to provide service-to-infrastructure context with higher levels of automation," writes Bob Laliberte, Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. "ClearApp's ultimate value -- or at least the value of its products -- may be greater in the context of integrating with large systems management vendors' application management solutions and feeding dynamic, context-specific information to those same companies' CMDBs."

The ESG paper concludes that such a maturation of application management would provide clearer root cause analysis, swifter problem resolution, effortless change management, and improved service level management.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
