StreamScape Technologies, a global provider of application infrastructure software offers a scalable platform for building and managing reactive data services.“The Application Data Engine™enforces SOA principles and eliminates implementation complexity; shielding developers from technical aspects of data management and simplifying the task of data integration. Service life cycle and deployment are handled by the platform, allowing users to discover and manage interfaces through a web-based catalogue,” says Dmitry Lelchuk, founder and CTO of StreamScape. Service interfaces are automatically exposed as REST or OData API and may be consumed by a broad variety of applications, mobile devices, data visualization tools, even Excel spreadsheets.“StreamScape eliminates the perceived short-comings of SOA by allowing customers to buy an SOA infrastructure or lease it on an as-needed basis in the cloud,” adds Dmitry.
With organizations evolving to be more data-driven and responsive, Micro- Service Architecture a specialization of SOA that favors fine-grained data oriented processing, emerged as a new trend in application design. The reason for this change is a gradual shift towards the so-called API Economy: exposing of business features to customers and 3rd party application developers through a public API, pioneered by Netflix, Google, Salesforce and Facebook. “Time-to-market, interface stability and fine-grained functionality have become critical to ensuring a feature-rich API platform” says Lelchuk. “As a micro-service enabler it is important for StreamScape to educate customers by explaining the benefits of an API platform and the changing role of SOA; then drive the vision by engaging with prospects that are focused on building an infrastructure for data aggregation and analysis.”
For example, a large wealth management firm recently chose StreamScape for their Decision Support platform replacing a costly, error-prone Operational Data Store system with a modern,lightweight and reliable stream-based solution, reducing cost and administrative overhead.

StreamScape plan to continue their focus on innovative tools that allow users to get meaningful insight from data without spending a fortune in the process. “We are working with cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon, data storage partners like MongoDB and Hadoop, as well as vendors like Salesforce to accomplish this goal,” concludes Lelchuk. “Data analysis is still an open field. The next few years should be pretty exciting.”
