With the explosion in the number and type of networked devices comes a side effect: Managing integrated, distributed applications whose software components are deployed far and wide becomes a roadblock to doing e-business successfully. This talk explains the concept of adding a new management layer ­a “computing fabric” ­in order to exploit the P2P and middleware infrastructures that have been and will continue to be deployed. With this approach, an enterprise or a solutions provider could use any connected device to inspect what application components are running across the network. From this same access point, users could discover, introspect, assemble, distribute and manage applications and services as they run ­ all with a lightweight, standards-based environment.
