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

soa  this highly assorted market. SOA is an application architecture in which all functions, so called services , are defined using a description language and have evocable interfaces that are called to perform business processes. Processes, transactions, and special functional components all have to be exposed as services allowing composite, diverse applications to be exposed too. Each interaction should be independent of each and every other interaction and the interconnect protocols of the communicating

SOA From a Management Perspective: Part One


The big buzzword in enterprise-wide package software is service-oriented architecture (SOA). SOA promises to solve a company's software ills, making life easier for information technology departments. This research note takes a look at this new architecture and highlights some concerns.

soa  to why converting to SOA does not appear to be an easy transition and cannot be accomplished with smoke and mirrors. Accordingly, we will look at the basics of SOA; the rollout plans of major software vendors; the benefits of SOA; concerns about SOA; and why the implementation of SOA won't be easy. This is Part One of a two-part research note. Part Two addresses concerns about SOA and how your organization can migrate to an SOA environment. What is SOA?

Runtime SOA Governance


The service-oriented architecture (SOA) integration framework enables organizations to map IT processes to business needs, with new business processes being defined on demand for business agility. However, SOA is predicated on an ability to integrate loosely-coupled services, one application to another: users are not necessarily involved. This creates challenges for governing how service assets are developed, provisioned, and invoked.
