NYSE Technologies Open Platform Launches the OpenMAMA Enterprise Edition

NYSE Technologies today announced the launch of the OpenMAMA Enterprise Edition as a part of its Open Platform which also features the Open Market Data Model (OpenMDM) and an upcoming OpenMAMA Enterprise Edition certification program.

The OpenMAMA Enterprise Edition is a commercial offering that is a fully supported, tested and certified distribution of the industry standard Open Source Middleware Agnostic Messaging API (OpenMAMA1). It provides an open, vendor-neutral integration layer for a variety of middleware systems, including NYSE Technologies Data FabricSM. The enterprise edition will also feature a certification program, due to be completed in the first quarter of 2013, whereby third party middleware and applications will be validated, guaranteeing compatibility and support.

The NYSE Technologies Open Platform enables users, vendors, and competitors to mutually benefit from a set of common standards and implementations through three key components: OpenMAMA, OpenMDM, and soon the OpenMAMA Enterprise Edition certification program. OpenMAMA, the backbone of the Open Platform, was open sourced by NYSE Technologies as of October 31, 2011 and is hosted by the Linux Foundation.

NYSE Technologies Open Platform Delivers:

“Through our enterprise distribution and third party certification program we are working with our customers, partners and competitors to create the best solutions for our clients on an open, multi-vendor platform,” said Don Henderson, CTO of NYSE Technologies. “The NYSE Technologies Open Platform demonstrates our commitment to promoting and operating a marketplace where success is driven by innovation, value and quality through collaboration.”

Industry Support of OpenMAMA itself has increased dramatically in the last six months with the availability of a number of new middleware bridges for: Exegy, Bloomberg’s open API (from Tick42), AMQP Qpid (from Red Hat), RAI Technologies, and IBM which is currently developing a middleware bridge for its WebSphere Front Office product. Red Hat, the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, wrote and open sourced the Qpid middleware bridge. IBM, which is currently writing a WebSphere Front Office bridge, has stated its intention to certify on the NYSE Technologies OpenMAMA Enterprise Edition in 2013.

“We are very excited to see NYSE Technologies embrace open source as the basis for their open platform and leading the financial services industry to a more open and collaborative way of doing business,” said Brian Stevens, CTO, Red Hat. “OpenMAMA, with Apache Qpid Proton, has the potential to be industry changing for the market data distribution business and we are happy to support this initiative.”

“The OpenMAMA project allows NYSE Technologies and other project contributors to collaborate in an open environment on common technologies that accelerate innovation in the financial services industry,” Jim Zemlin, executive director at The Linux Foundation. “This collaborative development enables companies like NYSE Technologies to deliver new messaging technologies to its customers even faster and with more industry support. The work being done by a range of project contributors is enhancing the value of the project for all.”

NYSE Technologies will continue to invest in the Open Platform by expanding its potential through the Open Standard Data Model, and by encouraging third parties to adopt and support the Open Platform, and certifying them on the OpenMAMA Enterprise Edition.

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model.

This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT.
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
