Service Oriented Architecture.
Although XACML can create certain bottlenecks, it cannot be taken completely out of the picture. It is still a good choice for access control and the use of the WSO2 Identity Server can help augment the benefits it provides.
When Sociedad Hipotecaria Federal (SHF) sought to improve its efficiency and enhance service, the Mexican bank evaluated technologies to integrate its value chain of processes, including promotion, credit approval, instrumentation, analysis, monitoring, control, collection and recovery. The integration demands spanned across workflows involving human tasks, as well as automated tasks between old and new core banking systems and insurance, treasury and collateral management systems. In his presentation at WSO2Con 2011, Mr. Raimond reviewed the strategy behind the bank’s adoption of an open source middleware platform to integrate and standardize these processes, achieve operational efficiency, decrease overall IT costs, and deliver higher levels of service to both internal and external clients. Here are highlights from his talk.About the Speaker

In the modern enterprise, complex business requirements are increasingly satisfied by a combination of new and existing services. Getting the right bits of information at the right place, at the right time, in the right format, and with the right protocol can be a challenge. The WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) provides a simple solution to this integration problem by providing a rich set of integration capabilities for robust, scalable and seamless integration of such services.
Governance is part and parcel of rapidly evolving businesses. It is critical that you have the right processes and policies in place to ensure the smooth running of your business in a rapidly reshaping eco-system. Governance is not only about monitoring and managing your services once they have been developed. It is also about developing them right, and meeting stakeholder expectations.
Although a public cloud has access to an "infinite" amount of computing resources, it's not for everyone. If you need to store your data in data centers that are controlled for security or policy decisions, a public cloud proves to be of little use. In such cases, a private cloud environment is the answer. A complete cloud computing environment can be used by your developers within data centers to build their applications on. They can also create test environments as and when required with almost no help from infrastructure teams.
This post discusses how to set multiple instances of WSO2 Carbon in a multiple-IP machine, binding to the same ports, with different IP addresses. Multiple instances of WSO2 Carbon can be configured to run on a single machine, to fit the requirements. The configuration often involves changing the ports of the instances, such that there won't be any conflict in the ports used. However, given a multiple-IP machine, multiple Carbon instances can be bound to the same ports, with the different instances listening over the available IPs.
When it comes to application integration, the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) is the unanimous answer. Its solution architecture exploits web services,messaging middle-ware, intelligent routing, and transformation. Given the breadth of its functionality, the decision of whether or not your organization will implement an ESB and if yes which one should you choose is critical.
In SOA , REST and WS-* carry equal precedence on the popularity scale.. However, architects and developers prefer REST over WS-* due to its simplicity, flexibility and the efficiency it can provide when combined with technologies such as XML and JSON, Therefore providing REST APIs for existing applications is a very common use case in the context of enterprise integration. This creates the requirement for having a robust integration framework which can process RESTful invocations with minimum overheads while connecting to diverse backend applications.
