SOA Governance FAQ by Luis Weir

After more than decade implementing SOA, I’ve come to the conclusion that one of the reasons that prevent organisations from realising the benefits of SOA is the lack of some sort of governance in their SOA implementations. I have also come to the sad conclusion that even though this is well known fact, many (end customers and SIs alike) still lack understanding of what SOA Governance is and why is it needed. Having said that, I created this post not only for my own reference, but also share this knowledge for those wishing to improve their understanding on this amazing topic.

Hopefully this FAQ provides some concise answers to many of these questions.

What is SOA Governance?

R. In simplistic terms, SOA Governance is the alignment of processes, people and tools needed to ensure that a SOA implementation is successful. SOA Governance primary objective is to maximise the benefits that SOA can bring to the business and IT. One thing to bear in mind is that SOA Governance does not exist on its own; it is in fact an extension of IT governance and EA governance. Read the complete article here.

AIA Foundation Pack Architecture Overview by Luis Weir

The Oracle Application Integration Architecture Foundation Pack (recently renamed to just Foundation Pack) at is Oracle's accelerator framework for implementing SOA-based system integrations. AIA FP and its prebuilt integrations such as PIPs were originally created to facilitate and accelerate the integration between different Oracle applications such as Siebel, E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, and JD Edwards, among others. Customers looking to simultaneously implement and integrate several Oracle applications gain huge benefits from employing PIPs, as these significantly reduce the effort and risk involved with building interfaces to support business processes. Given Oracle's aggressive and continuous growth by acquisition, AIA FP and prebuilt integrations have become fundamental to rapidly integrate newly acquired products with their existing apps portfolio.

The AIA FP contains a variety of design-time and runtime artifacts that can be used when defining, designing, building, testing, and deploying SOA solutions. The following diagram presents an overview of the different components that build up the AIA FP: Read the complete article here.

9 Tips for Organizational Maturity in SOA by Luis Weir

One of the greatest challenges to implementing SOA has in fact nothing to do with the intrinsic complexity behind a SOA technology platform. It is widely recognized that the real difficulty lies in dealing with people and processes from different parts of business and aligning them to deliver enterprise wide solutions. This is not only true in the case of SOA architectures but rather a challenge faced in systems design in general. As it has been nicely put by Conway’s law: “organizations which design systems ... are constrained to produce designs which are copies of the communication structures of these organizations”.

Following 9 tips that have helped me bridge organizational silos by improving communications and collaboration between teams/departments and also by providing visibility over available assets:
