I gave two important demonstrations this week to senior management:
- Phase one of our distributed production platform which uses many enterprise integration architecture patterns
- Using the semantic enrichment facilities of the FREME e-services from a proprietary plug-in to Ocelot that we built using its plug-in API.
The distributed platform demonstration went well and showed the potential of the architecture:
- Configurable routes from one micro-service to another
- Fault tolerance
- Composability and reuse.
What I particularly like about this architecture is that we can incorporate discrete processes with blocks of translation management system workflow. For example, we can transform assets from one format to another, carry out validation, pre-edit, post-edit, inject, and generally modify and optimise every aspect of the production process.
The Ocelot presentation went better than I even anticipated in that it captured the imagination of two of the attending senior managers: our Vice President of Global Sales commenting that he thought it would open up opportunities to speak to new departments and roles and within organisations who in turn could influence localization stakeholders and buyers.
I’ll be giving both presentations again next week to a customer and the collaborators and Project Officer of the FREME consortium.
