All about Silos
I am at BEAWorld and trying to salvage as much information as I can from the key notes and sessions. One interesting keyword I kept hearing and saw sprinkled all over the keynotes is "silos". Here's a literal dictionary meaning of silos, "A tall cylindrical structure, usually beside a barn, in which fodder is stored". Well, this is not exactly what the keynote speaker's meant.. ;). In technical terms silos mean applications, data or software's that are built monolithically and do not participate in any common software infrastucture a company might have. The strong message from the keynote speakers at BEAWorld that kept resonating is that the BEA AquaLogic product family provides software that will let you connect disparate and unsynchronized silos of applications by employing an integration architecture and SOA to help unify a sprawling infrastructure.
