Bram de Kruijff
Active on the web since 1995, Bram de Kruijff is an open source enthusiast responsible for Research and Development at GX Software inc. As a software architect he has a broad experience with server side web application architectures, frameworks and technologies for enterprise grade applications. Since 2005 he has been actively involved in several commercial products and projects that successfully adopted OSGi as a server side application architecture, leveraging open source software including many several ASF projects. Bram is a PMC member and committer of the Amdatu project.
The Amdatu Platform consists of a set of enabling services and application layer services and can run on public, private or hybrid (cloud-burst) environments. These services provide the foundation for any application built on the platform and consist of an OSGi framework that is cluster-ready, multi-tenant aware and can be accessed via a comprehensive set of REST based services. Applications can be dynamically assembled, monitored and managed.
The application layer services are available to any application running on the platform and include functionality like software and configuration provisioning, semantic indexing, search and recommendation, authentication and authorization, an open social implementation, extensive user and social network profiling and big data storage.
Amdatu leverages many Apache projects and hopes to join the Apache Incubator in the near future.
