OTTAWA, Ontario, May 20, 2020 – Solace, the modern enabler of real-time event-driven data streaming for enterprise computing, IoT and mobile applications, today announced its highly anticipated new product called PubSub+ Event Portal that makes it easier for enterprises to efficiently visualize, model, govern and share events across their organization. The first event portal in the market, PubSub+ Event Portal is an addition to the company’s PubSub+ Platform, which includes a market-leading advanced event broker called PubSub+ Event Broker.
Event-driven architecture (EDA) promises better customer experiences, more efficient operations, and greater agility. But many enterprises are finding it hard to realize those benefits due to a lack of tools for developer productivity and governance. As Gartner notes:
“While most organizations have basic event processing infrastructure – such as notification services, message buses, and event brokers – many don’t have the high-level productivity tooling that helps developers design, develop, test, and manage event-centric applications. Nor do they have tools for governing, publishing and managing event-based interfaces. The market for these tools is sparse.”¹
PubSub+ Event Portal aims to fill that gap by adding design, governance, and runtime management capabilities to PubSub+ Platform so architects and developers can work together to design, create, discover, share, catalog, visualize, secure, and manage events.
“From what we’ve seen of the PubSub+ Event Portal, we believe this new product will speed up our transition to event-driven microservices as we modernize our architecture with low/no code solutions,” said David Glenn, principal software engineer, Afni, Inc.
In addition to letting users model and discover events being streamed by the company’s own event broker, PubSub+ lets them import and visualize events from other catalogs, schema registries, and event brokers. That means enterprise, data, and application architects, as well as developers, can use PubSub+ Event Portal to manage all of their organization’s events, including those being distributed by other event brokers and being produced or consumed in diverse cloud and on-premises environments.
“We strive to help radiation oncology clinicians focus on their patients. An event-driven architecture will allow us to integrate systems in a much more dynamic way that otherwise takes up the clinician’s attention and time. But we hadn’t found a tool in the market that allowed us to model our next generation architecture and communicate clearly about it internally,” said Stuart J. Swerdloff, fellow, Elekta. “That’s why we’re excited that Solace is bringing to market PubSub+ Event Portal. We are convinced it will reduce the time it takes to design the next generation of integrated treatment delivery architecture. The Event Portal allows us to focus where it matters.”
“We’ve been using the early access of PubSub+ Event Portal. It changes the game for the lifecycle of event-driven architectures. It provides us with an intuitive toolset to model events in customer domains, including applications, events and schemas,” said Nikolai Blackie, co-founder and principal architect, Adaptiv Integration. “Initial feedback from our clients is that Event Portal makes it easier for architects to understand event flows in complex architectures.”
PubSub+ Event Portal lets you:
“The value of streaming information between applications and microservices via the publish/subscribe distribution of events is well known, but many enterprises struggle with making events reusable and governable across their organization and partner ecosystem. This is in addition to their struggle of communicating the architecture of their event-driven systems,” said Shawn McAllister, Solace CTO. “PubSub+ Event Portal helps by letting them design event-driven applications, events, and schemas in one tool. Those designs are automatically formed into network diagrams that teams can collaborate on as part of design reviews. When they’re deployed to production, it’s easy to see if everything is working as intended, and all changes are tracked and version controlled.”
Solace will roll out additional Event Portal features throughout 2020, including:
