The key objective driving service-oriented architecture is to move the IT organization closer to the business. Creation of services and their assembly into composite applications and processes is the mechanism by which IT can move to be more responsive to the business. However, it is the provision of real-time business information via dashboards that really gives business the confidence that IT can deliver. In this article by Matt Wright, we will examine how to use BAM (Business Activity Monitoring).Read Understanding Business Activity Monitoring in Oracle SOA Suite in full

This article, by Isaac Newton, author of Minitab Cookbook, will help you understand the different process variations that can be done in control charts using Minitab. Control charts are very simple graphical tools which show us if measurements/results are stable over time. They look at the mean and variation of the data and check to see whether the observed data shows any patterns that would not be expected to occur if the data was purely random. This special cause variation is indicated by tests that look for these patterns. They are based on there being a low probability of these patterns occurring randomly. Minitab provides a wide range of control charts for different scenarios. These include the standard control charts for monitoring a process over time such as Xbar-R or I-MR charts as well as multivariate control charts and charts to plot rare events. Now, we will look at using some of the more traditional charts, but also show the use of some of the newer charts in Minitab.Read Understanding Process Variation with Control Charts in full
The core of any Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) revolves around the definition of services and the way in which these services communicate with each other. How you choose to break up your application into services, whether dealing with the integration of legacy components or designing new functionality, and how they communicate can have a large effect on the performance, flexibility and resilience of your application.
