SOA’s People Problem by Bob Rhubart

Are reluctant passengers slowing down your SOA train?
Based on my conversations with various experts in service-oriented architecture (SOA), the consensus is that SOA tools and technology have achieved a high level of maturity. Some even use the term industrialization to describe the current state of SOA. Given that scenario, one might assume that SOA has been wildly successful for every organization that has adopted its principles.

Obviously SOA could not have achieved its current level of maturity and industrialization without having reached a tipping point in the volume of success stories to drive continued adoption. But some organizations continue to struggle with SOA. The problem, according to some experts, has little to do with tools or technologies.

“One of the greatest challenges to implementing SOA has nothing to do with the intrinsic complexity behind a SOA technology platform,” says Oracle ACE Luis Augusto Weir, senior Oracle solution director at HCL AXON. “The real difficulty lies in dealing with people and processes from different parts of the business and aligning them to deliver enterprisewide solutions.”

What can an organization do to meet that challenge? “Staff the right people,” says Weir. “For example, the role of a SOA architect should be as much about integrating people as it is about integrating systems. Dealing with people from different departments, backgrounds, and agendas is a huge challenge. The SOA architect role requires someone that not only has a sound architectural and technological background but also has charisma and human skills, and can communicate equally well to the business and technical teams.”

The SOA architect’s communication skills are instrumental in establishing service orientation as the guiding principle across the organization. “A consistent architecture comprising both business services and IT services can comprehensively redefine the role of IT at the process level,” says Danilo Schmiedel, solution architect at Opitz Consulting. That helps to shift the focus from siloes to services and get SOA on track.

To that end, Oracle ACE Director Lonneke Dikmans, a managing partner at Vennster, stresses the importance of replacing individual, uncoordinated projects with a focused program that promotes communication, cooperation, and service reuse. “Having support among lead developers and architects helps, as does having sponsors that see the business case and understand the strategic value,” she says.

Tracking progress of your BPEL process using sensors by Lonneke Dikmans

Often when you start using Oracle SOA Suite11g and BPEL you need a mechanism to help the end users keep track of the progress of the overall process instances. The EM shows this to administrators, but this is not suitable for end users.

What about the worklist application?
The SOA Suite offers the worklist application to handle tasks and to view progress using views and reports. It shows human tasks, crossing multiple process definitions. It does not show invocation of services or specific data changes in the process. The figure below shows three instances of one specific process definition. In this example relevant milestones are reached when the process starts, the first automated step is executed, the second human task is executed and when the process ends. In the worklist application you would be able to see what human tasks are open or executed by which user. With the worklist application you can't keep track of the first, second and last milestone, only of the third one because that is the only one associated with a human task.

SOA Made Simple by Lonneke Dikmans , Ronald van Luttikhuizen

SOA Made SimpleSOA is an industry term which is often preached like a religion rather than taught like a technology, and over time, grasping the concept has become unnecessarily difficult.

Many companies proclaim that they do not know where to begin with SOA, while others have begun their SOA effort but have not reaped the benefits they were convinced it would bring.

SOA Made Simple” explains what SOA is in simple terminology and by using real-life examples. Service-orientation is already a very natural way of thinking for business stakeholders that want to realize and sell services to potential clients, and this book helps you to realize that concept both in theory and practice. After reading “SOA Made Simple” you will have a clear understanding of what SOA is so you can implement and govern SOA in your own organization. If you are an architect who wants to be completely clear in your understanding of what SOA is, then this book is essential. In fact, anyone (designer, developer, administrator or team lead) who is implementing or about to implement an architecture in an IT environment should not miss out on “SOA Made Simple”.

If you published a book feel free to add it to our publications wiki!
