You Say RFI, I Say Riffy: Why You and Your Vendor Need to Speak the Same Language


When ideas fail, words come in very handy. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Software Selection Pitfalls Quick, what’s the number-one pitfall of the software selection process?

Understanding SOA, Web Services, BPM, BPEL, and More Part One: SOA, Web Services, and BPM


In the larger schema of things, SOA would espouse general, more abstract concepts of software reusability and encapsulation within certain boundaries (as to then provide access to that software via defined interfaces), Web services would then make these SOA concepts vendor-independent due to their use of generally accepted standards, while BPM and BPEL would be some of the engines making the whole system work.

abstract benchmarking  much broader and more abstract notion, given it is more than a set of technologies and runs independent of any specific technologies. Web services promise non-vendor dependence through the use of emerging Internet standards for Web-based messaging, application access and interfacing, business process transactions, and other key SOA activities. In any case, given the opportunity of more widespread, systematic software reuse, reduced complexity, improved agility, and a faster way of integrating legacy Read More
