Getting a Desired Business Return on Your Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) Investment

Today, business processes and information systems are so tightly intertwined that they must be designed together, as parts of a total architecture, to realize enterprise goals. In Succeeding with SOA , Paul Brown shows how service-oriented architectures (SOAs) provide the best structure for such integration: clean, well-defined interfaces between collaborating entities. But even SOAs need to be correctly understood and implemented to avoid common failures. Drawing on decades of experience, Dr. Brown explains what business managers and IT architects absolutely need to know--including critical success factors--to undertake this essential work.

Coverage includes

Setting clear and reasonable expectations for SOA's benefits Understanding why conventional project management techniques don't scale to today's enterprise-wide projects Defining a living roadmap for developing services based on business priorities Establishing coherent leadership that brings together business executives, IT leaders, and the SOA architecture group Using Total Architecture Synthesis (TAS) to rapidly develop business processes and information systems together Understanding the central role of architecture--and making sure the right architectural decisions get made

Whether you're a business or technical leader, this book will help you plan, organize, and execute SOA initiatives that meet or exceed their goals--now, and for years to come.


Address the #1 Success Factor in SOA Implementations: Effective, Business-Driven Governance

Inadequate governance might be the most widespread root cause of SOA failure. In SOA Governance, a team of IBM’s leading SOA governance experts share hard-won best practices for governing IT in any service-oriented environment.

The authors begin by introducing a comprehensive SOA governance model that has worked in the field. They define what must be governed, identify key stakeholders, and review the relationship of SOA governance to existing governance bodies as well as governance frameworks like COBIT. Next, they walk you through SOA governance assessment and planning, identifying and fixing gaps, setting goals and objectives, and establishing workable roadmaps and governance deliverables. Finally, the authors detail the build-out of the SOA governance model with a case study.

The authors illuminate the unique issues associated with applying IT governance to a services model, including the challenges of compliance auditing when service behavior is inherently unpredictable. They also show why services governance requires a more organizational, business-centric focus than “conventional” IT governance.


Coverage includes

Understanding the problems SOA governance needs to solve Establishing and governing service production lines that automate SOA development activities Identifying reusable elements of your existing IT governance model and prioritizing improvements Establishing SOA authority chains, roles, responsibilities, policies, standards, mechanisms, procedures, and metrics Implementing service versioning and granularity Refining SOA governance frameworks to maintain their vitality as business and IT strategies change
Putting Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) into Practice

“This book is a must-have for enterprise architects implementing SOA. Through practical examples, it explains the relationship between business requirements, business process design, and service architecture. By tying the SOA implementation directly to business value, it reveals the key to ongoing success and funding.”
—Maja Tibbling, Lead Enterprise Architect, Con-way, Inc.

“While there are other books on architecture and the implementation of ESB, SOA, and related technologies, this new book uniquely captures the knowledge and experience of the real world. It shows how you can transform requirements and vision into solid, repeatable, and value-added architectures. I heartily recommend it.”
—Mark Wencek, SVP, Consulting Services & Alliances, Ultimo Software Solutions, Inc.

In his first book, Succeeding with SOA, Paul Brown explained that if enterprise goals are to be met, business processes and information systems must be designed together as parts of a total architecture. In this second book, Implementing SOA , he guides you through the entire process of designing and developing a successful total architecture at both project and enterprise levels. Drawing on his own extensive experience, he provides best practices for creating services and leveraging them to create robust and flexible SOA solutions.

Coverage includes
Evolving the enterprise architecture towards an SOA while continuing to deliver business value on a project-by-project basis Understanding the fundamentals of SOA and distributed systems, the dominant architectural issues, and the design patterns for addressing them Understanding the distinct roles of project and enterprise architects and how they must collaborate to create an SOA Understanding the need for a comprehensive total architecture approach that encompasses business processes, people, systems, data, and infrastructure Understanding the strategies and tradeoffs for implementing robust, secure, high-performance, and high-availability solutions Understanding how to incorporate business process management (BPM) and business process monitoring into the enterprise architecture Whether you’re defining an enterprise architecture or delivering individual SOA projects, this book will give you the practical advice you need to get the job done.
