Johan Kumps

Biography

Johan Kumps is a SOASchool Certified SOA Architect - Analyst at RealDolmen, a Belgian consultancy organisation based near Brussels. For several years Johan has been involved in the service oriented analysis and design phase of several Service Oriented Architectures for both Flemish and Belgian Federal Government.

In this statute Johan designed the Federal Service Bus (FSB) platform for the Belgian Federal Government using Oracle technology. The FSB is an implementation of the Enterprise Service Bus pattern enabling different government divisions to exchange information using SOA concepts. Currently Johan is fulfilling the roles of SOA Architect and SOA Analyst in several SOA projects. Thanks to his everlasting interest in new things and taking what he's doing to the next level, Johan came across Semantic Web technologies a few years ago. Some time ago he realized that this new approach to the Web was becoming more and more mature. Johan started his own investigation and rapidly came across some colleagues that had already been investing time in this matter. No further convincing was necessary to make Johan see that he needed to sink his teeth in the combination of semantic technologies and service oriented principles. As a committee member of the JBoss ESB project, he started with the implementation of Semantic SOA features in the JBoss ESB platform.
