As usual, we will be closed a few weeks during the Summer holidays 2014. This means that we will only offer production support (no other services) during the following weeks:

  • July 7-14 (inclusive)
  • August 18-29 (inclusive)

Thanks for your understanding!

We want to ask for your help and/or feedback on the following matter…

We're a small company with no VC money to burn so we need a sustainable customer base and dito commercial offerings.

During the last year or so, we've been trying to transform towards a mainstream customer base (as opposed to fewer, bigger but select customers). For this, we needed a more modest and flexible pricing scheme as well as some more individualised service offerings. The numerous prospects we've talked to have driven us towards the following formula.

So here is the question: what feedback are you willing to share with us? Is there anything important we've missed that could convince your company to purchase from us (and thereby make our continued open source offerings possible)?

If you have anything you want to share, please feel free to comment on this post… [UPDATE: if you have no login then feel free to email us at info at atomikos dot com]

Thank you!

To all candidate community members who did not manage to create a forum account:

now it should work again!

Security settings and anti-spam measures somehow broke the registration process - apologies for that frown, sad smile

We've restricted access to https://www.atomikos.com/maven-repository (our maven repository) to customers only, so they can have easy and timely access to bug fixes, maintenance releases and full feature releases.

If you're not a customer then you have two options:

In the near future we plan to distribute TransactionsEssentials exclusively via the central maven repo.

Early adopters wanted! We are working on something radically different and new in the industry, being a light-weight transaction (and BPM) model for REST with the following characteristics:
  • Guaranteed interoperability
  • Easy and intuitive to use
  • No technology dependencies, so no configuration required
  • Compatible with the REST architectural constraints

To get an idea of what it is like, consider the following example: a telco operator wants to allow customers to acquire 'personalized' phone numbers for a fee. The process is the following, assuming an incoming request for a given customer and a chosen phone number:
  1. The system checks if the number is available, and if so then reserves that number for some time (on behalf of the customer).
  2. The customer's credit is checked in the billing system.
  3. If OK, then the phone number reservation is confirmed and the billing is done.
  4. Otherwise, the phone number is released again and no billing is done.

Imagine the BPM modeling you would need to do to handle all failure scenarios and confirmation scenarios from that last 2 steps. We know from experience that this does not scale…

Instead, what we offer is a complete and reliable automation of the confirmation and cancellation steps - letting you focus on the happy path of the workflow. We do this via a service called TaaS ( TCC as a Service) and plan to offer a REST implementation of that. We've presented this idea at the recent SOA symposium (the presentation can be found here) and we are looking for early adopters to sponsor our version one product…

So if your SOA should be lightweight and involves the concept of reservations of business resources then please email us today to apply for our early adopter program. Don't wait, because being a small company we can only do a few of these and first come means first served…
