This book documents topics to demonstrate and take advantage of the analytics strengths of the IBM POWER8® platform, the IBM analytics software portfolio, and selected third-party tools to help solve customer's data analytic workload requirements. This book describes how to plan, prepare, install, integrate, manage, and show how to use the IBM Data Engine for Hadoop and Spark solution to run analytic workloads on IBM POWER8. In addition, this publication delivers documentation to complement available IBM analytics solutions to help your data analytic needs.
This publication strengthens the position of IBM analytics and big data solutions with a well-defined and documented deployment model within an IBM POWER8 virtualized environment so that customers have a planned foundation for security, scaling, capacity, resilience, and optimization for analytics workloads.
This book is targeted at technical professionals (analytics consultants, technical support staff, IT Architects, and IT Specialists) that are responsible for delivering analytics solutions and support on IBM Power Systems.
In addition, we articulate a testing strategy using IBM Rational® Quality Manager and deployment options using IBM Workload Deployer.
Taken together, this book provides comprehensive guidance for building and testing a solution using core IBM Rational, Information Management, WebSphere, Cognos and Business Process Management software. It seeks to demystify the notion that developing and deploying advanced solutions is taxing.
This book will appeal to IT architects and specialists who seek straightforward guidance on how to build comprehensive solutions. They will be able to adapt these materials to kick-start their own end-to-end projects.
Part 1 outlines the roles of a service registry and an enterprise service bus (ESB), and explains the benefits of combining these technologies.
Part 2 focuses specifically on the ESB and registry that is offered by WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus Registry Edition. It also describes topology choices and installation.
Part 3 presents a fictional business scenario that demonstrates how an organization can register services and build simple and advanced mediations using these services.
IT specialists, IT architects, and those who are looking for a technical discussion of WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus Registry Edition will find value in this book.
