SOA Governance

As we all know SOA is about business and SOA is about technology. A business oriented SOA (organization of well defined and autonomous business service units) needs a technology oriented SOA (modular standards based composition of functional autonomous software components) to support optimal continuity of the service delivery in an ever changing context. Whew…!

This has been an industry wide effort which included contributors and reviewers from many leaders in technology. The main page for the book contains a good overview, TOC, and links to all of the patterns online

SOA ROI - Case Studies across various industries

Just to let folks be aware that SOA, the architecture-formerly-known-as-SOA, and the architecture-until-recently-known-as-SOA is alive-and-well, I gathered up some success stories that show tangible ROI from recent SOA projects across the industry, which include some Oracle customers.

Some of them go even further by trying to make some money out of it, and they do, sometimes. Of course it doesn't necessarily always cover the cost of the equipment.

Business Process Driven SOA - using BPMN and BPEL

It is going to look like I am collecting the whole SOA-library of Packt Publishing. Not because of any commercial interest or benefit, but because I discovered that their collection is very appealing to me as an IT-architect who realizes that practice is always about the "dirty details" (which I often used to call the "golden details" to our developers).

Do I really need AIA?

One of the frequently asked questions from those new to AIA or other canonical object based methodologies, is whether AIA is really needed in their specific SOA project.

In short, it depends.
