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.

Why It’s Time for an Integration Revolution

CIO Dashboard

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. Guest post by Glen Hobbs.

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! Chapters 2 & 3

Leveraging Organizational Knowledge

When I state that my writings on this blog were about SOA all along, I mean that SOA is probably the best value-adding, customer-facing, tangible web-based implementation (that I know) of a knowledge leveraging strategy. What I do not mean is that SOA is the only way to leverage organizational knowledge, nor do I mean that a company-wide change process to establish a knowledge sharing culture must incorporate some degree of SOA in order to be beneficial.

It was about SOA all along! Chapter 6

Leveraging Organizational Knowledge

Chapter 6 is about "Internal IT” or the effect the SOA transformation can/should have on the internal IT department/functions. With the help of a meeting with all the managers of the fictitious company Vorpal's IT department, it explains that a SOA does not only support the informal edges of the organisation but also the formal transactional hub. The functions must mirror the key business processes that SOA has formalized.

It was about SOA all along! (Chapter 1)

Leveraging Organizational Knowledge

This book illustrates its arguments with the help of a tale of a fictitious company Vorpal going through the process of implementing SOA. Anyway, the authors' intentions were not initially to consider all the likely resistance to SOA adoption. Instead, the Vorpal scenario helps us understand typical reasons for needing SOA and a typical implementation process with its cultural, organizational and technical impacts. [ cont.

It was about SOA all along! Chapter 4

Leveraging Organizational Knowledge

Chapter 4 is about how SOA can transform the relationships with your suppliers. I will quote from the book how a Vorpal supplier defines these SOA-driven relationships it has built with it's customers (p.57). I like to think of it as negotiation jujitsu - it's now my job to use your strength to create new business for us instead of just holding the line on price while you pummel me.” With an SOA, suppliers and customers work hand-in-hand to generate value.

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.

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.

David Linthicum

That post took a lot of heat from the powers that be in the world of service-oriented architecture (SOA), especially those pushing a specific type of SOA governance. As a longtime blogger, columnist, and general pundit in the technology space, I spend a lot of my day pointing out both the good aspects of enterprise technology and the technologies that may no longer deserve our support.

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.
