Technology, you seductress

JackBe, provider of enterprise solutions that integrate SOA and AJAX to deliver the next generation of rich Internet applications, announced Phase I delivery of a Web-based intelligence briefing solution for the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). Powered by JackBe’s NQ Suite AJAX software platform, the application will be showcased at the DNI’s “Information Sharing Conference & Technology Exposition, Intelink and Beyond: Dare to Share” at Table #906.

The initial implementation, called “Overwatch,” consists of a personalizable, desktop-like intelligence asset dashboard or ‘webtop’ developed using JackBe’s NQ Suite AJAX development platform, and a middle tier that discovers and displays intelligence data sources without any additional front-end or back-end development required. The entire solution is accessible through a standard Web browser, with no proprietary downloads or plug-ins required.

Man, almost makes a brother want to apply for his old job (though with everyone leaving who would I b!tch to over coffee? ;-)

This is what I meant below about “what works” and dreams. Functional, familiar, and most importantly: deliverable.
