Globetom Enterprise Foundation (GEF)


Innovate, build, deploy and manage services to expand your market globally. 

The Globetom Enterprise Foundation (GEF) is a next-generation application server and integration platform in the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), XTPP and Web-scale IT paradigms.

GEF delivers a robust framework that is used as a foundation for the development of applications that conform to SOA principles.

By enabling service development in languages such as C++ (Linux, Unix, Microsoft .NET Visual C++), .NET, Java and PHP, GEF is programming language agnostic and hardware and operating system platform agnostic. The product delivers cross-platform reach meaning that your organisation can benefit from Windows and UNIX (Linux) applications integrated using GEF. The core GEF application runs on Linux distributions and is certified on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS. The application platform is virtualisation and cloud server ready with many installations running on VMWare.

GEF truly delivers on the SOA promise: SOA is often diluted to client-server applications using the internet as communication network. GEF delivers on the SOA differentiation – the agility gained through the execution of services that are implemented as configurable business processes. Our business process modelling is done in Mcrosoft Visio. This means that the bulk of your business functionality runs on existing, proven, business process orchestration code. This reduces risk with new product and service introduction.

Proven Technology: GEF already switches more than 450 billion middleware messages per annum across multiple industry verticals. Our collective solution portfolio includes hundreds of business processes deployed for our customers.

Web-Scale IT: GEF supports horizontal scalability. This means that our customers can start with a small, commoditised hardware footprint with the knowledge of linear hardware and infrastructure cost of scaling and no surprises once mass-scale service delivery is required.

"While SOA was initially sold around the value of reuse, or the ability to reuse services among various systems, users have come to discover that the real value of SOA provided is the ability to change core business processes without requiring waves of redevelopment, testing and deployment. This is a very important point."David S Linthicum - Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence in Your Enterprise - A Step-by-Step Guide, Addison Wesley, 2009
