SOAInstitute.org to Focus on APIs

As businesses turn digital and ecosystems become increasingly open, the nature of integration is changing. SOA helped us connect IT transactions and systems within a controlled environment. APIs will help us turn legacy into advantage, exposing assets to be consumed by innovators outside your own team. The transformative power of APIs will last twice as long and have many times the impact of the web. Whether you goal is to drive innovation, become a mobile business, or navigate a hybrid cloud, APIs are part and parcel of your strategy.

In principle, the acronym API stands for Application Programming Interfaces, but the notion of what API means has evolved significantly. APIs today are quite different from the application programming interfaces of old, and the transition from SOA to API centric systems is a very natural one. Enterprises that embark on this journey will continue to leverage the engineering practices embraced by SOA, but will extend their ecosystem in new ways through APIs. Experiencing the power of APIs involves much more than simply data monetization. The power of APIs can be successfully applied to business challenges ranging from changing business models to embracing a world of devices and sensors.

The 'As-Is' As It Really Is - Process Discovery and Visualization from Fujitsu

The traditional approach involves significant investment in time and resources to map out processes the outcome of which is often delayed and inaccurate. Read how Fujitsu's Automated Process Discovery Service helps companies:

Implementing SOA: Total Architecture in Practice

If you are an architect responsible for a service-oriented architecture (SOA) in an enterprise, you face many challenges. Whether intended or not, the architecture you create defines the structure of your enterprise at many different levels, from business processes down to data storage. It defines the boundaries between organizational units as well as between business systems. Your architecture must go beyond defining services and provide practical solutions for a host of complex distributed system design problems, from orchestrating business processes to ensuring business continuity.

Closing Session: Conference Wrap-Up and Important Take-Aways

A constant change in your business requires aligning business process management, business rules development, business services development, organizational performance objectives, information architectures and shifting business architectures. Join us for this conference wrap-up session as we tie together the events of the five conferences/symposia and provide you with take-home recommendations.

The Dark Matter of the Business Driven Enterprise Architecture Through Business Architectures

In astrophysics Dark Matter is responsible for the universe not flying apart, thus encouraging the growth and stability of the universe’s cohesiveness & structure. In the Business Driven Enterprise Architecture, the Dark Matter of the BDEA is what is ultimately responsible to ensure complete integrity and cohesiveness of a true overall Integrated Enterprise Architecture that is completely known. The Dark Matter of the BDEA comprises proper identification & clarification of Value Chains and Value Streams.

Gaining Alignment on Notation

Delivering value to the business – that’s the intent! Gaining alignment between work underway in the business process arena and work underway in the IT organization is essential if value is actually going to be delivered. And that alignment is not a given; a critical factor is management of the respective “languages” used by business process managers and by IT systems developers. This presentation uses examples from an actual enterprise-level project to spotlight potential pitfalls and illustrate specific approaches that deliver value.

Case Study: Launching a Business Architecture Center of Excellence at Wells Fargo Bank

Business architects feel the need to organize themselves to share best practices, exchange knowledge, highlight successful projects, and gain visibility among executives. The most common approach is to launch a Center of Excellence (COE). Getting funding and establishing relevance within challenging current events confront many COE launch efforts. This session explores an action research case study at Wells Fargo Bank to show how to effectively launch a COE in the midst of post-merger integration activities.

Case Study: Making Complex Policies Visual for the Web

Does your company’s intranet have lengthy policy, or “How to do this process…” webpages? Is compliance a challenge for employees – especially when a policy spans multiple departments and systems? If this sounds familiar, you’ve probably also noticed that your intranet pages act as the glue to link many corporate processes together. In this session, we’ll review some practical, visual techniques for transforming complex paragraphs of policies, or long scrolling pages of process instructions/exceptions into easy to use, and actionable webpages.

Case Study: Putting the Business (Architecture, That Is) Into Government EA

In difficult times, knowing where you're going is increasingly important. Business architecture is a missing link in any advanced organization's long and short range plans for the future. Historically, there has been a tendency in the business/IT management world to view Business Architecture as either an add-on or a separate activity altogether, much as many organizations look at Business Process Management as separate from either Enterprise Architecture or Business Architecture.
