How the cloud has modernized SOA

David Linthicum

I've talked about the importance of service-oriented architecture (SOA) many times in my InfoWorld blog, so I'm not going to make another list of the reasons you should design systems as sets of services. They are mostly API-driven; whether you know it or not, if you've built new applications using cloud services, you've done SOA, and you will continue to get deeper into it.

The micro-services and API economy revive SOA

SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) was once declared dead because it was associated to a software design paradigm using the now defunct SOAPcontinuing from. The path to the virtual cloud Enterprise is paved by the Digital evolution.

The key knowledge gap hindering your cloud

David Linthicum

In 2012, I wrote a post for InfoWorld entitled " Perfect fit: The cloud and SOA -- but don''t call it that." Although SOA (service-oriented architecture) is indeed systemic to most private and public clouds, the majority of people who stand up clouds don''t know what SOA is or how it can be applied.

Why It’s Time for an Integration Revolution

CIO Dashboard

2) the n2 problem – for every new endpoint added, new connections multiply exponentially, resulting in hairball-architectures. The second stage of integration— Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) —was designed to detangle the hairball and reduce the brittleness of the systems. SOA hid complexity behind “services” and created a single connection from the service to the hub or bus. If you liked this, you might also like: Twitter: SOA in Action.

Leveraging Organizational Knowledge

After reading some recent articles on his blog I quickly realized I had to read his latest book about Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) titled: " Mashup Corporations. After only reading up to the end of the Introduction chapter, it suddenly stroke me: All my thoughts and ideas that initiated the articles on this blog since its creation in 2005 were calling for, relating to or assuming SOA! And the most amazing is that I never even mentioned SOA.

It was about SOA all along! Chapter 7

Leveraging Organizational Knowledge

Chapter 7 is about the "typical” barriers to implementing SOA throughout an organization. The authors added this chapter in the 2nd edition following a suggestion by Avrami Tzur (VP of SOA at HP). I will start by saying that I was a bit disappointed with this chapter: it does literally focus on the specific resistance to SOA without considering the probable more generic reasons for this resistance.

It was about SOA all along! Chapter 5

Leveraging Organizational Knowledge

Once again, I'm not aware of many CxOs (let alone CEOs) with such an open-mind on new technologies and the courage to initiate and lead the drastic cultural change that a SOA demands. Such forward-looking leadership is indeed a must for a successful SOA implementation. Chapter 5 describes 5 rules for successful SOA implementation. This is for me the cornerstone of an SOA implementation.

Enterprise Architecture Enables Innovation: Melvin Greer, Lockheed Martin. In the interview , Mel focused on the importantance of entrprise architecture as an innovation enabler. What I want to challenge EA practitioners to think about and to move toward is an environment where we use enterprise architecture not only for compliance to our chief information officer’s needs and to use it for alignment but [also] to drive EA as an enabler for innovation.".

Developing Your Integration Platform Requirements

I would lean heavily towards an integration architecture based on a single integration flow designer rather than spate tools for ESB, SOA, Data, ETL, BPM, etc. Need to map out your requirements for an integration platform to implement later on in 2017? Here are a few requirements that I would consider: Single Studio Approaches.

SOAPA services opportunities abound

These changes are initiating an evolution from monolithic security technologies to a more comprehensive event-driven software architecture (along the lines of SOA 2.0) ESG refers to this as a Security Operations and Analytics platform architecture or SOAPA. When speaking or writing about SOAPA, I often compare this evolution to an analogous IT trend in the 1990s.

Challenges faced here led FanDuel to re-architect to the next-generation architecture. In 2011, FanDuel migrated entirely to AWS, but scaling issues due to application architecture persisted. In 2012, FanDuel moved the architecture toward SOA, introducing message queues to decouple services. In 2015, business volume soared another order of magnitude, the road to SOA continued, and FanDuel moved from a self-managed MySQL instance to a MySQL RDS instance.

This sort of architecture gets you greater scale as well as greater redundancy and fault tolerance. This architecture will get you to tens of thousands of users, but how do we go even farther? SOA—or, dare I say, microservices—is the next step on scaling the application. By now, Williams says the architecture should support over a million users. This is a liveblog of the AWS re:Invent session titled “Scaling to Your First 10 Million Users.”
