SOA Methodology Guinea Pigs

First Guinea Pigs for SOA Methodology Workshop


Well today we had more than 20 guinea pigs, sorry delegates, for our first run of the SOA Success Principals Workshop.  The content seemed to be well received, attendees seemed to get value from the session.  To be honest the SOA Methodology presented is more a small m methodology than a big heavyweight methodology.  As such it fits well into another methodology such as various versions of the Unified Process.


In the workshop we discussed the following items;


SOA Maturity Model


A model for assessing the level of SOA adoption within an organisation that can then be used to perform a gap analysis and focus areas for improvement.


Business Value - Patterns for project selection


Tools for selecting which projects will most benefit from the SOA approach.


Project Methodology Overview


How to tie your SOA projects into key business requirements and high level business goals.


Enterprise-level tasks for projects


Talked about governance, portfolio planning and domain level identification and mapping.


Discovery & Requirements Gathering


How to verify that you have aligned SOA projects with the business drivers and objectives.


Service Discovery & Design


How to identify services, level of granularity and stuff like that as well as what to track in your service and process portfolios.


SOA Patterns


Patterns and anti-patterns for SOA development, drawing heavily on Steve Jones article.


Too much material for the day, even if it is only a taster!

Comments:

As a Guinea Pig at this session I found the content to be good and well delivered. I will be able to take the principles described and employ them within my company. Many Thanks Ian

Hi,

We're conducting a SOA/BPEL project and we are evaluating the Oracle SOA Success Methodology.

We're from Brazil, and I don't know about any session events available yet.

The only documentation we have is available in the SOA Suite Developers Guide.

I'd like to know if Oracle has a more complete reference for this methodology available, so I can do a complete analysis.

I appreciate any addicional documentation.

thanks Denis

Denis,

I have asked one of our product managers to contact you.  I have sent his email to you so you can contact him direct.

Hi Antony, I was on the second day on the 20th and found it very valuable. Attended an 'SOA' project launch yesterday and found it very useful to think of your SOA Maturity Model! I cant get the ftp link that you gave us to work - would you be able to send me the URL again please. Thanks in advance, Martin

All attendees should receive an email with a new URL.  Sorry there were some problems with the original location.
