SOA, Business Process and Enterprise Architecture: Putting it all Together

With all of the interest in SOA, most organizations are trying to figure out how to integrate SOA with other major initiatives including Enterprise Architecture and Business Process. Mr. Orr discusses an approach which integrates all of these approaches driven from business context, business value and business process concepts. In this talk, Mr. Orr shares a number of SOA design approaches based on a common business semantic strategy for doing business analysis and high-level service definition.

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to Maximize Value from Agility

The concept of agility has been in existence for more than a decade.  Several techniques such as modular designs and component-based architecture have been tried.  These techniques and their variants to improve agility did not fully address the two key factors namely, quickness and inexpensive, essential to maximize the business value.  Lack of agility resulted in underutilization of traditional process-oriented systems. Service Oriented Architecture to process-oriented system integration offers hope in addressing the key factors.

Case Study: Web Services Adoption in the Enterprise

Web Services offers great promise for large enterprises, but moving from project trials to enterprise adoption can represent a long road. First Data is a leading Fortune 500 financial services organization engaged in e-commerce, card processing and money transfer services that is exploring how to leverage this technology to transform its internal and external operations and will share its experiences in this regard.

Case Study: Real-World Issues in Complex Web Services-Reliability, Performance, Transactions

The underlying simplicity of Web services is what makes them so appealing.  SOAP and WSDL, sometimes coupled with UDDI, give you standards-based, cross-platform communications in a relatively short time. But what happens when you try to use Web services to run your business? Suddenly, this great new technology becomes secondary to your ability to secure, manage, monitor, guarantee, and improve the services provided. This presentation by the 3rd largest domestic bank tackles real-world issues when implementing a Service-Oriented Architecture using industrial-strength Web services.  You will learn: How Web services do (and do not) support complex, commercial-quality processing; how to fill the gaps left by missing or immature standards; and when to consider "not" using Web services.

Business Process and Business Enterprise Architecture Modeling

Business Process and Enterprise Architecture are both hot today. The problem is that they are often approaching the same problems from two rather different directions. Ken Orr will discuss how to integrate BP and EA initiatives through a business-driven approach called Business Enterprise Architecture Modeling. As this approach suggests, it is driven from the business strategy, business problems, business opportunities and business processes rather than from the technology side. Mr. Orr will also discuss where he sees BP and EA going in the long run.
