Composite Applications: Real or Hype?

Composite applications, hype or real? Is it just a new way to develop applications or is it really something new? In this article an explanation is given on composite applications within the SAP world. What are composite applications and how they will help you to innovate your business process.


You can read more about this in my article that I published on SDN, Composite Applications, Real or Hype?


And yes, I am very happy again that SDN published a link on the SDN homepage.

Twan,

You are on the front page of SDN again... good stuff, mate.

One question: talking about composite applications, we should make a distinction between two types: 1) "mash-ups" that are lite-weigh composite applications, focussing on Web2.0 technology and which are very UI centric and 2) the "real" composite applications that have a strong BPM/process orchestration component, that focus on distributed data manupilation and that we know from tools like PI ccBPM, SAP NW CE, etc.

So: Mash-up is the relatively simple stuff for endusers that play around with Visual Composer, Google Maps, etc.; real composites is the real stuff, more for IT professionals that have to deal with distributed transaction processing.

What do you think?

SAP TechEd 2013, the best and strangest experience ever

SAP TechEd 2013 - The best but also the strangest SAP TechEd ever Together with 10 colleagues I visited SAP TechEd in November 2013. Tim Burchartz - Jaap van de Mheen - Frank Hammen - Michael Hardenbol - Steven Spronk Twan van den Broek - Roel van den Berge - Ted Castelijns - Maarten Kreijveld (Missing on the pic: Leo van Hengel and Wim Snoep, who attended one day due to busy customer schedule) Best Team CloudSitter won the SAP InnoJam on Monday with an app that monitors new born baby’s on their wellbeing. Premature babies have an higher risk on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome , that’s why we came up with a sensor that tracks heartbeat, temperature and breathing. Information is stored in a central database in which thresholds can be validated. If there is reason to warn, the mobile app sends an alarm and changes color. Time to check upon your child.
