Moving to a Service-Oriented Architecture
AbstractMuch has already been written about Web Services. But just implementing this within some parts of your IT environment does not offer a real competitive advantage. Implementing services as part of a Service-Oriented Architecture however will lead to a more flexible IT system, which assists in the improved execution of the business strategy. Moreover, it will not achieve this by throwing away existing IT resources, but by helping businesses to get more value out of them. After defining the concept of a Service-Oriented Architecture, this article explains the business imperatives for starting this multi-year effort. Next the challenges are highlighted that must be overcome in order to be successful. Finally, the Service-Oriented Architecture approach is situated in an Enterprise Architecture framework, a holistic method for architecting your complete enterprise IT.
