SOA Blueprint: A Toolbox for Architects – article at OTN and Service Technology Magazine

image32this article introduces the foundations that need to be established in order to implement functional SOA processes. Rather than presenting specific tools, we will define a broadly applicable SOA blueprint whose individual modules can be topped up with commercial products or increasingly available open source offerings.

A Company Blueprint

Upon examination of Figure 1, the vision of adaptive enterprise computing is illustrated as a meta-blueprint for the overall company with three differentiated levels:

  • Infrastructure Level - This level is formed by databases, storage systems, application servers, and all other IT resources that are required to run IT systems.
  • Application System Level - This level houses entire applications, both individual applications and standard software, as well as services relating to SOA, workflow and BPM systems.
  • Process Management Level - Functional requirements are manifested in the process design and then implemented at the lower levels.

Figure 1An advanced service-oriented architecture is the most effective option for implementing the functional requirements at the application-system level. The more superior the mapping of existing business services to the functional steps in process models is, the more the business-IT gap shrinks.

Various back-coupling loops represent the actual added value of this meta-blueprint, meaning consistent usage of services and technical processes enables the measuring of KPIs. This in turn facilitates process control and ultimately the optimization of processes. The more progress a company makes in implementing their SOA, the greater and faster are the effects to be achieved for adaptive
enterprise computing. ... read the full article here

Industrial SOA article at OTN and Service Technology Magazine

image3SOA and service-orientation have laid the foundation for a variety of emergent service technology innovations, while the original building blocks of SOA and service-orientation continue to evolve by embracing fundamental service technologies, concepts and practices. These new technology innovations do not replace service-orientation; they use it as their basis.

Service-orientation continues to evolve towards a factory approach, towards industrializing integrated platforms, such as BI, master data management (MDM), mobile front-ends, BPM, adaptive processes, Big Data and Cloud Computing – all of which add architectural layers upon SOA-based infrastructure. All of these technologies can interface via standardized data and functions, published as service contracts, in order to avoid redundancy – that's service-orientation. Let's take a closer look. The amount of data, which companies produce and store tends to grow on an on-going basis. This includes structured data (for example, from ERP systems or data warehouses), as well as unstructured data (for example, from e-mails). With the rise of social media services like twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and the emphasis on Customer Experience Management, the amount of data and data sources has increased dramatically. To integrate all of these data sources through an SOA-approach is essential. The models, principles and patterns behind SOA and service-orientation can be applied to formalize interoperability between... read the full article here

The Successful Execution of the SOA and BPM Vision Using a Business Capability Framework: Concepts and Examples

Speaker: Clemens Utschig-Utschig, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharma GmbH & CoKG and Manas Deb, Oracle

At a basic level, SOA advocates software development using self-sustaining packages of IT assets, aka "services". Each of these services typically represents a unit of business functionality. Similarly, Business Process Management (BPM) focuses on the comprehensive discipline of creating, managing and improving "business processes" which are articulations of (business) activities that help a business function.

A business process often needs services for its execution; a service can sometime include one or more business processes. Thus, relevance of SOA and BPM to the success of a business is immediate and obvious. In fact, over the last decade, a great amount of attention and effort have been dedicated by businesses and technologists to derive substantial benefit from SOA + BPM vision. However, the yield has been quite uneven across companies attempting this combined adoption. Some are enjoying superior competitive advantages, while others have only garnered modest ROIs.

In this fast-paced presentation, author Clemens Utschig-Utschig and Manas Deb explain how ne of the key reasons for low returns from combined SOA and BPM adoption has been the lack of focus on "business capabilities". Strategies are conceived in order to achieve the goals and objectives of a business; for successful execution of a strategy a set of accurate and well-defined business capabilities is necessary. Using conceptual discussions and examples from the industry, this presentation will explain how business capabilities are related to business strategy execution, and in turn how SOA and BPM adoption can build upon and improve such business capabilities.

Clemens Utschig-Utschig works for Boehringer-Ingelheim′s Global Business Services (GBS) as Chief Architect, helping to establish GBS′ next gen′ business architecture based on service orientation. Before joining BI he worked at the Oracle Headquarters in the United States as platform architect, working with the Fusion Applications development as advisor and supported customers all around the world on their journey towards implementing enterprise-wide SOA. During his platform engineering years, Clemens was responsible for cross product integration, strategic standards as well as a member to the Oracle′s SOA platform steering committee, and served on the OASIS TC for Service Component Architecture (SCA).

In 2006 Clemens co-founded the "Masons-of-SOA", an inter-company network founded by architects of Oracle Germany, Opitz, SOPERA (Eclipse Project Swordfish founders) and EDS, with the mission of spreading knowledge, fostering discussion and supporting SOA programs across companies and borders. After 14 articles on advanced SOA topics in the German Java Magazin, a three patterns in Thomas Erl′s SOA Design Patterns catalogue, they are currently working on "Next Generation SOA" - slated to release as part of the Service Oriented Computing Series of Prentice Hall for late 2010. Clemens is also a co-author of the SOA Manifesto.

Dr. Manas Deb is a Senior Director in the Fusion Middleware/SOA+BPM+Governance Suites Group at Oracle HQ. He currently leads strategic engagement initiatives for Oracle's service-oriented integration and BPM solutions worldwide. He is also responsible for Oracle's SOA methodology initiatives. Manas has worked in the software industry for over 20 years, most of which was spent in software product management/marketing and on architecting and leading a wide variety of enterprise-level application development and business integrations projects in a wide variety of industries. He attended post-graduate studies at the University of Texas at Austin. He has a PhD in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics, as well as an MBA. Click Here to View Speaker Profile
