Community Management: The Next Wave of SOA Governance and API Management

While SOA Governance, as a discipline, has been around for a number of years, not every company that embarks on the adoption of SOA has decided to embrace it. In some cases, the runtime management of service is implemented, but not the design-time aspects. Now, with the introduction of Cloud Computing and the proliferation of mobile devices, the “new” discipline of API Management is surfacing. This session explores why API Management has emerged, its relationship with SOA governance, and why both of these disciplines will ultimately take a page from the business-to-business world and evolve into a new discipline called “Community Management”.

Tim Hall, VP of Oracle Product Management discusses, compares and contrasts SOA Governance and API Management, explaining why he believes they will evolve into a new discipline called “Community Management”.

Fast Data: Go Big. Go Fast.

Cross-posting Dain Hansen's excellent recap of the Big Data/Fast Data announcement during OOW:

For those of you who may have missed it, today’s second full day of Oracle OpenWorld 2012 started with a rumpus. Joe Tucci, from EMC outlined the human face of big data with real examples of how big data is transforming our world. And no not the usual tried-and-true weblog examples, but real stories about taxi cab drivers in Singapore using big data to better optimize their routes as well as folks just trying to get a better hair cut. Next we heard from Thomas Kurian who talked at length about the important platform characteristics of Oracle’s Cloud and more specifically Oracle’s expanded Cloud Services portfolio. Especially interesting to our integration customers are the messaging support for Oracle’s Cloud applications. What this means is that now Oracle’s Cloud applications have a lightweight integration fabric that on-premise applications can communicate to it via REST-APIs using Oracle SOA Suite. It’s an important element to our strategy at Oracle that supports this idea that whether your requirements are for private or public, Oracle has a solution in the Cloud for all of your applications and we give you more deployment choice than any vendor.

If this wasn’t enough to get the juices flowing, later that morning we heard from Hasan Rizvi who outlined in his Fusion Middleware session the four most important enterprise imperatives: Social, Mobile, Cloud, and a brand new one: Fast Data. Today, Rizvi made an important step in the definition of this term to explain that he believes it’s a convergence of four essential technology elements:

  • Event Processing for event filtering, business rules – with Oracle Event Processing
  • Data Transformation and Loading - with Oracle Data Integrator
  • Real-time replication and integration – with Oracle GoldenGate
  • Analytics and data discovery – with Oracle Business Intelligence

Each of these four elements can be considered (and architect-ed) together on a single integrated platform that can help customers integrate any type of data (structured, semi-structured) leveraging new styles of big data technologies (MapReduce, HDFS, Hive, NoSQL) to process more volume and variety of data at a faster velocity with greater results. 

Fast data processing (and especially real-time) has always been our credo at Oracle with each one of these products in Fusion Middleware. For example, Oracle GoldenGate continues to be made even faster with the recent 11g R2 Release of Oracle GoldenGate which gives us some even greater optimization to Oracle Database with Integrated Capture, as well as some new heterogeneity capabilities. With Oracle Data Integrator with Big Data Connectors, we’re seeing much improved performance by running MapReduce transformations natively on Hadoop systems. And with Oracle Event Processing we’re seeing some remarkable performance with customers like NTT Docomo. Check out their upcoming session at Oracle OpenWorld on Wednesday to hear more how this customer is using Event processing and Big Data together.

If you missed any of these sessions and keynotes, not to worry. There's on-demand versions available on the Oracle OpenWorld website. You can also checkout our upcoming webcast where we will outline some of these new breakthroughs in Data Integration technologies for Big Data, Cloud, and Real-time in more details.

SOA Adoption and Architecture Fundamentals course is now generally available!

Numerous companies have begun a SOA initiative with the assumption that implementing web services is synonymous with employing a service-oriented architecture. They have gone on to discover various barriers to SOA success and have not seen the returns a successful SOA implementation can provide.  These companies lacked an understanding of SOA adoption and architecture fundamentals.  This course presents those fundamentals with an Enterprise Architect's view of Oracle's SOA Enterprise Technology strategy, to equip the student with skills for handling both business and IT concerns throughout the entire SOA life cycle, from both the program and the project perspectives.

This course takes the student far beyond the limited view of SOA as simply a collection of web services. Students learn how to assess an organization's SOA capabilities in eight separate business and technical domains, and how to analyze the gap between those capabilities and their SOA vision. From that maturity assessment, they learn steps to develop a multi-year SOA road map for an organization and a framework for SOA project selection. A deep-dive exploration of SOA Reference Architecture from the conceptual, logical, product mapping, and physical perspectives is presented before the course transitions its focus to the service engineering life cycle.

As the course introduces the service engineering life cycle, it stresses the importance of analysis, architecture, delivery and management. Lessons present criteria and techniques for service identification and discovery, and guidelines for consistent access to enterprise information. Requirements management is discussed, and the decomposition of functional requirements, business processes, applications and data requirements is presented. The identification, discovery, justification and validation of services is covered, and is followed by an exploration of service delivery. Additional course topics include a discussion of the principles of service-oriented integration, and the reasons and guidelines for establishing a SOA governance framework.

Learn to:

  • Assess an organization's SOA maturity
  • Identify and prioritize service candidates
  • Define a high level conceptual and logical architecture
  • Create an SOA road map for an organization
