A Roadmap for SOA Development and Delivery by Mark Nelson

This post is part of a series on SOA Development and Delivery.

In this post I will present a roadmap and a target state for SOA Development and Delivery.  This will serve as the basis for an extended open ‘proof of concept’ that we will work through together, over a series of posts, to implement and prove this approach.

Let’s talk first about our target state – the goal we want to achieve, then we will come back and look at the steps on the journey.

The Vision – Continuous Delivery

Continuous Delivery is a set of practices, supported by tools and automation, that is focused on answering the question: ‘How much risk is associated with deploying this new change into production?’

It involves automation of everything that needs to happen between a developer committing a change and the release of the software including that change into production, including:

  • building the software
  • testing the software, and
  • managing the configuration of the environments

The outcome that we want to achieve, is that we can automate all of our:

  • build
  • component-level test
  • environment provisioning (for development, test and production environments), and
  • acceptance test

Chalk Talk with John: How Does SOA Add Value to Your Enterprise? By John Brunswick

In this episode of Chalk Talk with John we revisit our town of Middleware Fields from What Does User Experience Mean to You? to look at demystifying the business value of SOA.

Middleware fields is an extremely eco-conscious community and has been trying to setup a commuting program for their employees. Though a good idea, they soon run into challenges ensuring that people are able to use the commuting services easily.  Take a look below to see how SOA is like a transit pass for your enterprise and how it addresses common issues you may - watch the video here.

Connecting Clinical and Administrative Processes: Oracle SOA Suite for Healthcare Integration By Mala Ramakrishnan

One of the biggest IT challenges facing today’s health care industry is the difficulty finding reliable, secure, and cost-effective ways to exchange information. Payers and providers need versatile platforms for enterprise-wide information sharing. Clinicians require accurate information to provide quality care to patients while administrators need integrated information for all facets of the business operation. Both sides of the organization must be able to access information from research and development systems, practice management systems, claims systems, financial systems, and many others. Externally, these organizations must share claims data, patient records, pharmaceutical data, lab reports, and diagnostic information among third party entities - all while complying with emerging standards for formatting, processing, and storing electronic health records (EHR).

Service-oriented architecture (SOA) enables developers to integrate many types of software applications, databases and computing platforms within a particular health network as well as with community, state, and national health information exchanges. The Oracle SOA Suite for healthcare integration is designed to provide healthcare organizations with comprehensive integration capabilities within a unified middleware platform, as well as with healthcare libraries and templates for streamlining healthcare IT projects. It reduces the need for specialized skills and enforces an enterprise-wide view of critical healthcare data.

Here is a new white paper that details more about this offering: Oracle SOA Suite for Healthcare Integration.

SOA in Real Life: Mobile Solutions part of the Industrial SOA article series

ind-soa-mobile-fig02Abstract: Any place, any time: the old promise from the dotcom age has never been more relevant. With the release of the iPhone, Apple set off a huge amount of hype. Many people now have a laptop with broadband Internet connection and/or WLAN or UMTS Internet access. Yet these devices are still too large, too awkward, and take too long to boot up to be usable at any time. On the other hand, almost everyone has a smartphone these days, making them more mobile than ever in today's economy.

Smartphones are enormously practical and are becoming more and more powerful. They are generally very easy to operate, can be used almost anywhere, and the mobile web is becoming both faster and cheaper. App stores are shooting up everywhere and new functions can be installed with a single click. As the saying has it: "There's an app for everything."

The use of built-in sensors provides for entirely new possibilities such as Google Maps integration, location-based services, augmented reality, etc. Built-in cameras are becoming more and more powerful and are often used as a second compact camera. Video telephony is becoming more common - not just on Skype, now long-established, but also through Apple Facetime. The speed of innovation is tremendous.

Use Cases

A very high percentage of apps are games, followed by information systems that are mainly of interest to private users. These information systems are making increased use of the built-in functions on the mobile device. For example, the system identifies my location via GPS and can provide me with information via a personalized localization. Using the integrated camera one can scan a barcode and run a price comparison through the system. Previously unthinkable "Star Trek" technology is now (almost) a reality. Soon we will have combined tricorders/communicators/tablets in a single device.

More and more companies are viewing mobile solutions as a means by which to accelerate processes, incorporate external partners more easily into processes, and lower their own process costs. We are already using numerous examples for B2C services such as booking flights by cell phone, tracking packages, and finding out delivery dates and opening hours. To optimize these functions for your own company, creative ideas are required: How can I increase customer loyalty? While B2C applications are already spreading very rapidly and probably represent the core business of all non-game apps, B2B is developing only slowly. One of the central questions here is how additional services can be offered to the business partner. According to Gartner, top growth areas include location-based services, social networks, mobile search, mobile commerce, mobile cash, context-aware services, object recognition, mobile instant messaging, mobile e-mail, and mobile video. Read the complete article here.

The articles are and will be published at OTN and the Service Technology Magazine.
