Web Architecture Expert Cesare Pautasso Joins Board of Consilience International

Glens Falls, NY – October 14, 2010 –Consilience International LLC, developers of the Ideate Software Framework, announced today that Cesare Pautasso, PhD, a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Lugano, Switzerland has joined the Company’s Board of Advisors.

Cesare is a graduate of the renowned ETH Zurich. Prior to his post on the Faculty of Informatics at the University of Lugano, he was a researcher at the IBM Zurich Research Lab and a senior researcher at ETH Zurich (Switzerland). His research focuses on building experimental systems to explore the intersection of model-driven software composition techniques, business process modeling languages, and autonomic/Grid computing. Recently he has developed an interest in Web 2.0 Mashups and Architectural Decision Modeling. He is the lead architect of JOpera, a powerful rapid service composition tool for Eclipse. His teaching, training, and consulting activities cover advanced topics related to Web Development, Middleware, Service Oriented Architectures and emerging Web services technologies. He is an active member of IEEE and ACM, where he has participated in more than 100 international conference and workshop program committees. He is has recently organized the 3rd International Workshop on Web APIs and Services Mashups at OOPSLA (Mashups’09) and is program chair of the 8th European Conference on Web Services (ECOWS 2010). He is currently co-authoring a book on SOA with REST, to be published by Prentice Hall. He recently organized a major international workshop on web architecture and RESTful service design in the US (http://ws-rest.org/).

“We are really pleased to have Cesare join our Advisory Board,” stated Dave Duggal, the Managing Director of Consilience. “Web architecture is an emerging field that is now getting a lot of attention, Cesare is on the frontier of this movement and is well positioned to understand and inform our continuous technical developments.”

“Ideate is an impressive engineering achievement, both in what it can do and how it does it,” noted Cesare. “It’s exciting to see web architectures applied in an enterprise context with such a strong value proposition. They have a great vision and I’m glad to be a part of the team.”

About Consilience International LLC and the Ideate Framework

Consilience International is the developer of the patent-pending Ideate™ application framework (www.ideate.com). Ideate is a keystone technology that bridges the responsiveness of web interactions and the authority of transactional systems. It harnesses the latent capacity of web-style architecture with an innovative system for dynamically mashing-up information. The System weaves data, process, and policies on-demand, so businesses can support the routine management of highly-variable processes, not by exception, but by mass customization. Ideate™ has all the benefits of component-based distributed system architecture, but with fewer moving parts. Ideate virtually centralizes the orchestration and execution of distributed services and resources, all processing is handled at the point of interaction. While SOA is well suited for interoperability across enterprise legacy systems, it is sub-optimal for building and maintaining complex, information-intensive composite applications. As a middleware-intensive architectural style SOA depends on an array of third-party applications to separately evaluate events, orchestrate process, implement rules, and manage data, complicating execution and limiting dynamicity. Ideate™ extends and transcends Service Oriented approaches providing all of the above capabilities in one solution; there is no need for separate investments in Event Processing; Business Rules Management, Business Process Management; or Master Data Management. The Framework provides one unified approach to all. It is holistic and rationalized; lightweight and practical; responsive and fast. It offers: productivity gains from new capabilities; performance gains by eliminating middleware; and service improvement from personalizing enterprise applications. The Company’s mission to turn the enterprise inside-out, from command-and-control to empower-and-adapt; responsive to individuals and events so the organization can compete in a dynamic world.
