What is WebSphere Message Broker?


Message Broker enables universal connectivity by integrating protocols, message formats and mediation patterns
Emphasis on application re-use

Fits naturally with WebSphere MQ


Robust, scalable architecture Optimized for high throughput Flexible broker topologies

Three programming constructs are used:


Message Flows Nodes Message Models

Nodes
The building blocks of message flows

Each node type performs a different (input, output or processing) action

Many different node types


Grouped into logical categories in the message flow editor Nearly 100 nodes available out-of-the-box (as of WMB V7)

Key Scenarios Deliver Significant Business Value

Exposing new interfaces on top of existing applications


Extend the Reach of Existing Applications: Multi-channel Processing Easily transform batch-oriented file work into online requests Get the Most from Packaged Applications Connect Devices to the Enterprise

Providing an aspect on top of your application connectivity layer.


Provide a Policy Enforcement Point for secure application connectivity Make an Application Inventory and Govern Processing with a Registry Initiate and Support Business Processes Monitor your Business Activity and Act Intelligently

30/05/2011

GUIDE SHARE EUROPE

Extend the Reach of Existing Applications


Multi-Channel Processing
Allow applications to expose different formats and protocols to users, for example:

Web Services Enablement


WMB universal translator converts web service to existing formats and protocols Existing applications can consume web services without change Exploit web services with limited new development skills and platforms

MQ Enablement
Enable robust, transactional, reliable, high-performance messaging WMB makes an incredibly broad range of connectivity mechanisms available to MQ Any application can easily connect to the MQ infrastructure inbound or outbound

30/05/2011

GUIDE SHARE EUROPE

Combine File-based and Online Processing


File exchange between applications continues to be popular and effective
No need to mandate technology

There are legitimate reasons for using file transfer


Files relate naturally to the way people and processes work File processing allows clients to get file/batch work online, easily

Use WMB to process files before or after transfer


Use MQ FTE (for example) for assured file transfer

30/05/2011

GUIDE SHARE EUROPE

Get the Most from Packaged Applications


Packaged applications play a vital role in many organisations
SAP for purchasing, sales, inventory SEBL for Sales PeopleSoft for HR JDEdwards EnterpriseOne

Interfaces are often non standard: e.g. SAP BAPIs, IDOCs


Processing and data are isolated from other applications Result: packaged apps have difficultly using/generating information for other apps Inhibits adoption of a best of breed philosophy

WMB has support for inbound and outbound connectivity to these systems
These adapter components are built in to the broker Packaged applications can focus on what they do best and be integrated

Connect Devices to the Enterprise


Industry Observation: How do I get information from everywhere, understand it, and act?
Medical, Energy and Utilities, Distribution, Transport, Gaming Issues based e.g. traffic congestion, efficient energy, timely supply

A Smarter Planet is full of devices


Data is generated outside the enterprise by typically very large numbers of devices My not yet be connected Often concentrator technology; differentiate, integrate & forward

WMB connects devices to enterprise systems


Use MQTT for standards based device integration Small footprint client, embeddable Lightweight protocol for bandwidth cost (by-the-byte) Fragile network support for hostile environments
30/05/2011

IBM is working with Brisbane, London, Singapore and Stockholm to deploy smarter traffic systems. Stockholm has seen approximately 20 percent less traffic, a 12 percent drop in emissions and a reported 40,000 additional daily users of public transportation.

GUIDE SHARE EUROPE

Provide a PEP for Secure Application Connectivity


Secure application identity, authentication and authorization
Identity management, access control, authorization, and authentication mechanisms (AAA) are essential

Use the Broker as a Policy Enforcement Point


Broker receives or generates a security token Userid/password, X.509, SAML, Kerberos, LTPA, RACF Uses a Policy Decision Point to determine access LDAP, TFIM, WS-Trust

Security hardened DMZ device strengths

30/05/2011

GUIDE SHARE EUROPE

Derive Value from an Application Inventory


Catalog application and service assets using a registry, e.g. WSRR
Use registry information in WMB routing
Service Provider

Primary use cases:


Visibility: application catalog & relationships Governance: who accesses which applications/services Dynamicity: update registry to change WMB behaviour without redeploy Policy based Processing: policy enforcement and policy based service selection
Virtual Service Service Requestor Use metadata to implement smart mediations
3

Develop a flexible infrastructure to support change


WMB creates a Virtual Service Examples include M&A, decommissioning & external partner communication
30/05/2011

Advertise availability of the virtual services

Service Registry

Capture metadata about services for use by WMB

GUIDE SHARE EUROPE

Initiate and Support Business Processes


Compose existing applications and services to create new value Exploit range of WMB connectivity to abstract and simplify BPM
BPM focuses on WHAT; WMB focuses on WHERE and HOW Breadth of WMB connectivity enables multiple business process starting points

Supports top-down and bottom-up scenarios


Identify process event, and initiate business process Multiple options with Process Server, Lombardi, FileNet
Business Process Business Process

Business Rules for Smart Connectivity


Apply rules to WMB data in-flight
Automate decisions Implement, manage & share decisions services across IT infrastructure ILOG JRules for Embedded rules and ILOG Rules Server subsystem

Rule-based Decision Service

WMB
Inputs Outputs
Most often this data comes from a variety of data sources i.e. aggregation, transformation is needed

Rule-based Decision Services render decisions on input data

Rule-based Decision Services send outcome decisions to other system


Output data needs to be transported and dispatched to one or many systems

GUIDE SHARE EUROPE

Business Activity Monitoring and Event Intelligence


Understand the importance of WMB data and detect business situations
WMB connectivity allows processing of events from many sources, targets Capture business relevant information from the broker Examples: total dollar trade value per day, total number of orders per hour

Scenarios:
Generate business monitoring events from existing connectivity Enables integration with WebSphere Monitor to display and analyze KPIs Capture business events for correlation using WebSphere Business Events Look for correlations in data, e.g. fraud, Up-sell and Cross-sell opportunities, CRM Audit, Repair and Replay transported events

Design time and operational time event activation
