MuleSoft Selects CloverETL to Enrich the Data Integration Capabilities of the Mule ESB Enterprise and CloudHub Platforms

Arlington, VA (PRWEB) July 19, 2012

Javlin today announced that CloverETL data integration software will play an important role in MuleSofts Mule ESB and CloudHub offerings platforms that act as transit systems for carrying data between applications, simplifying the process of maintaining and growing application integrations.

As part of the partnership, CloverETLs Designer and Engine support Mule Studio, MuleSofts Eclipse-based graphical designer that drives Mule ESB and CloudHub. With Mule Studios visually intuitive DataMapper, users can easily interact with complex data sets and formats to create maps and transformations that support their integration use cases. Integrated into Mule Studio, the visual part of MuleSofts DataMapper builds upon a variety of CloverETL Designer APIs to provide integration developers with intuitive screens for development and design-time validation of data payload mapping.

The payload mapping is then translated into the CloverETL data transformation format utilized by the CloverETL Engine, which performs the actual payload transformation based on user-defined mapping. The CloverETL Engine has also been fully integrated into the Mule ESB Enterprise and CloudHub deployment platform environments to provide a seamless experience and support in production.

Business analysts looking for the value in their data can easily work with the common data integration functions such as:

Communication with databases, accessing message queues, exchanging data with packaged or custom applications (including legacy apps)
Working with data in different modern formats (XML, JSON), or legacy (CSV, fixed-length or Cobol)
Direct integration with data structures of Java programming language (POJOs, hash-maps or JavaBeans)

Built into Mule Studio, CloverETL helps drive data mapping with the easy-to-use, analyst-friendly GUI. As an Eclipse-based developer tool, Mule Studio allows users to graphically create and test Mule ESB flows. With the help of Clover, the need for direct programming knowledge is significantly reduced, said Ken Yagen, VP of Products for MuleSoft.

The Mule Studio DataMapper works on top of CloverETL Designer to provide users with the tools to quickly design data transformations: CloverETL and MuleSoft embrace the opportunities an OEM relationship offers, said Peter Cresse, EVP of Sales, Javlin. With Clover, MuleSoft can approach clients data integration needs with heightened strength, agility, and real usability to offer a greater overall ESB package.

Enterprise Hive Announces General Availability of the First Technology Data Commons for Higher Education Technology Research

Irvington, VA (PRWEB) July 09, 2012

For the first time, individuals can find over 100 downloadable higher education technology research reports with verified information on the technologies and software applications selected by over 13,000 institutions. Enterprise Hive and The Tambellini Group have partnered to deliver eduHiveMind.

In addition to downloadable reports including software selections by institutions for SIS, Financials, HRMS and LMS solutions, individuals with valid higher education email work addresses may rate their experience with vendor and open-source software solutions. Providing real-time vendor ratings, eduHiveMind offers higher education technology decision-makers data from colleagues at peer institutions.

Higher education decision-makers will find insights regarding the technology decisions made by institutions of similar type and size. Enterprise Hive uses a proprietary methodology to allow individuals to connect with others who share the same job roles in similar campus environments.

“Taking the guesswork out of which peer institutions have selected technology similar to what I’m considering, will save higher education decision makers untold hours,” according to Vicki Tambellini, CEO of The Tambellini Group and Enterprise Hive. Vendors will find the data commons a valuable resource when considering partnerships and new product investments. Financial managers and investors will also use eduHiveMind to research vendor market share and trends.

The data-as-a-service offering marks a major milestone for anyone that requires higher education technology market research. The need for a service like this has been discussed for years by higher education decision-makers, vendors and organizations supporting the industry. The problem is that the research is expensive to manage and the application to deliver the results did not exist. “We first started planning for this application in 2007. We are pleased to be first to offer the self-service solution for those that need information to make better decisions,” says Tambellini.

Chad Udell Offers Mobile Guidance for the Enterprise in New Book Learning Everywhere

Morton, IL (PRWEB) June 18, 2012

Chad Udell, mobile design and development expert and managing director of Float Mobile Learning, announced today the release of his new book, Learning Everywhere: How Mobile Content Strategies are Transforming Training.

A must-read for HR administrators, instructional designers, and learning and development professionals, Chads book addresses the nuances of planning, designing and developing mobile content for training purposes.

The goal for this book from day one was to create a practical guide for developing mobile training initiatives in organizations, Udell said. People have been talking about the opportunities mobile has for training and HR departments for a long time, but Learning Everywhere puts it all into a practical context. Scribbling in the margins is encouraged.

Learning Everywhere takes readers through the lifecycle of developing mobile content strategies for enterprise training, from planning and content choices to design and development. In the book, Udell introduces four pillars for mobile training content, establishing a framework and industry standard.

Udell proves the value of informal learning in addition to the formal, structured learning that takes place via mobile devices. Learning Everywhere offers strategic thinking that is immediately applicable in the workplace.

Whether you are just beginning to investigate mLearning or have a project or two under your belt, this will surely become your go-to book, offers mobile learning analyst Judy Brown in the books foreword. This is a how-to manual for mobile learning.

Learning Everywhere is published by RockBench Publishing in concert with the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD).

Copies are available in hardcover or in digital format via Apples iBooks and Kindle format on Amazon.
