Reading Kurt Cagle’s article Beyond Agile: The Studio Model.
One significant flaw in Agile is that it is programmer-centric and task-oriented. However, a significant portion of any project relies upon existing resources and SMEs who serve to to curate, annotate and document the institutional information that are necessary for projects to succeed. They are the ones that end up documenting code and make information consistent, findable and describable within a common metadata framework. These are ongoing processes, which IMHO have always fallen outside of most Agile frameworks, yet as enterprise consistency becomes an ever larger requirement, the role of librarians and data stewards becomes much more pressing.

The IBM DataPower XI52 appliance provides an ESB backbone that facilitates (brokers) communication between services. Features include…
||Communication between parties who use different protocols such as http, https, ftp, MQ. ESB bridges (converts) these protocols.
|Message format virtualization
||For example, one party sends XML (SOAP) message, ESB converts to JSON, which is sent to backend.
||WSDL services that used to exist on servers can be moved to ESB.
|XML attack security
||Including DoS, MMXDos, and other attacks.
|Configuration driven interface
||Less code to write
|XML processing at wire speed.
||Versus server-based ESB solutions that operate at software speed.

We can leverage SSH public-key authentication between hosts to enable all sorts of useful functionality, including…
- Password-less login from HostA to HostB
- Ability to execute remote commands from HostA on HostB
- We can automatically administer an entire network of servers from a central server
I once set up a large WebSphere Commerce site for a Fortune 500 retailer that used this procedure to remotely execute various commands, including stopping/starting, and generating reports for, eXtreme Scale caching.
