“TIBCO® Architecture Fundamentals is a must-read for anybody involved with the architecture and design of distributed systems, with system integration issues, or with service-based application design. In particular, solution architects responsible for TIBCO-based systems architectures should consider reading this book and its planned follow-on titles.
“The product portfolio of TIBCO today is simply too broad for anybody to have an ongoing detailed understanding of what is in there and what elements of the portfolio are best suited in a given business scenario. Paul Brown provides the required oversight in this book, helping both experienced solution architects and newcomers in the field find their way through the myriad technology options TIBCO offers today.”
–Bert Hooyman, Chief Architect, Europe for MphasiS (an HP Company)
“In his previous books, Dr. Brown developed the ‘total architecture concept’ in a generic setting. In this one, he presents a concrete application of it to the TIBCO product line. It will be a valuable resource to anyone developing solutions with those tools.”
–Glenn Smith, Principal Consultant, Appian
“This material is spot on for what is needed in enterprises today, to give a level set to all the architecture teams and project teams they interact with, to outline what is expected, and the roles that each play. In addition, it is a timely overview of the latest TIBCO product suites, and I am anxious to see the follow-ups to this (BusinessEvents- and BPM-focused materials).
“This book provides a detailed look at what happens in the creation of an integration architecture for a business problem. Paul’s attempt to capture in words the years of project experience will be a benefit for groups getting familiar with establishing an enterprise architecture standard, as well as a refresher for those performing this function today.
“I would like for all the folks on my team to read this to ensure we are all on the same page with the deliverables that are expected from architecture teams involved in global projects, and the role that the TIBCO tools play in implementing these solutions.”
–Joseph G. Meyer, Director of Architecture Services and R&D, Citi
“Brown’s approach to presenting the highly complex architectural issues is by far the best I have encountered. While each of the individual areas has been detailed in other texts, this is the only publication I have read that lays out each aspect of the architectural issues and describes them in an easy-to-read, comfortable style.”
–James G. Keegan Jr., President, Intrepico, Inc.
“I recommend the book wholeheartedly. The combination of breadth and depth is not usually found in technical books.”
–Lloyd Fischer, Senior Software Architect, WellCare Health Plans
