Most large enterprises have launched an initiative to adopt service-oriented architecture (SOA), but SOA is not a solution that comes in a tidy little box. SOA is a new way to design systems, and it is more about culture than it is about technology. SOA will impact many aspects of an organization—from software development and operations to accounting and incentive systems. Governance is critical.
Business Service Management (BSM) is of growing importance in the IT world. By managing IT systems according to the business services they support - like order entry, online sales, shipping, or customer service - IT is able to deliver on real business goals like providing competitive advantage, improving customer satisfaction, driving revenue growth, and increasing shareholder value.
Ready or not, here comes SOA. More and more organizations are turning to SOA to speed application development, increase reusability across and beyond the enterprise, integrate historically separate systems resulting from acquisitions and mergers, and drive costs down and service quality up.
For service-oriented architecture (SOA) to succeed, it needs to begin before run-time, with a strong SOA-based development and delivery environment. This paper discusses some of the challenges around SOA governance in the context of a lifecycle of services, and introduces IBM Rational Asset Manager software as a solution to those challenges.
More than likely you’ve heard quite a bit about service-oriented architecture (SOA) and how it holds the promises of quicker response to market trends, improved customer services and lower application development costs. From an infrastructure perspective, an SOA implementation contains all the same pieces and parts as your traditional environment.
