MSF R2 Service Architecture

As Internet and IP technologies are increasing service expectations, the number of resources available to create, deploy, and manage new services have reduced. The result is that expectations for new services are outpacing the ability to deliver them. We explore the limitations of traditional voice service architecture, and propose a new architectural solution to address these shortcomings.

Linked Enterprise Data: Data at the heart of the company

The data silos of today's business information systems (IS) applications, and the pressure from the current economic climate, globalization, and the Internet make it critical for companies to learn how to manage and extract value from their data. Linked enterprise data (LED) combines the benefits of business intelligence (BI), master data management (MDM), service-oriented architecture (SOA), and search engines to create links among existing data, break down data walls, provide an open, secure, and long-term technological environment, and reduce complexity—read this white paper to find out how.
