All things that can be automated will be automated. Beyond the careful choreography of sophisticated workflow, managing myriad simultaneous requests puts unprecedented demand on the software that must schedule and perpetually deliver against well-defined service levels, in real time. Gone are the days of simple batch processing. Welcome to the oh-so-very-flat world that is embracing service-oriented architectures, grid architectures, expansive ecosystems, and end-to-end processing. Workload scheduling has got to grow up.
Nordics based financial company had challenges in migrating the old legacy network design to Cisco ACI for a new Datacentre. Also it did not had service overview and CMDB to support 150 business services transition. LTI leveraged and implemented several ServiceNow modules, customised 100 odd patterns for 150 business services and executed extensive integration of 25 legacy systems. These transactions and implementation helped in easy cost computation for new business expansions
1. 25% reduction in DC migration time by creating business service oriented move groups
2. Accurate costing of each business service for replication in new regions/geographies
The waiting room experience at your business can make or break customer service. Customers not only feel special when they wait in style, it’s good for business too. You can give your hotel, retail store, auto repair shop, or other service-oriented business a big boost by customizing your waiting room to feature free Wi-Fi, TV or technology workspace.
The information overload on SOA is largely on describing its merits, its principles and the vast variety of products intended to address its needs. This document is written to identify the factors to be considered, and articulate the principles and questions to be asked that will drive the decisions within each enterprise towards creating a road map for implementation.
Business evolution and technology advancements during the last decade have driven a sea change in the way data centers are funded, organized, and managed. Enterprises are now focusing on a profound digital transformation which is a continuous adjustment of technology management resources to deliver business results, guided by rapid review of desired outcomes related to end clients, resources, and budget constraints. These IT transitions are very much part of the competitive landscape, and executed correctly, they become competitive differentiators and enable bottom line growth. These outcomes are driving data centers to virtualization, service-oriented architectures, increased cybersecurity, “big data,” and “cloud,” to name a few of the key factors. This is completely rethinking and retooling the way enterprises handle the applications, data, security, and access that constitute their critical IT resources. In essence, cloud is the new IT.
AB World Foods has a highly complex supply chain, driven in part by the nature of its globally sourced and distributed products as well as by the demands of growth and acquisition. With Infor SCM Demand Planning, the company cut costs while also improving service levels.
There has never been a more important time to uncover process waste, reduce non-value adding activity, and increase productivity. Lean Six Sigma (LSS) produces real results, and when combined with business process management (BPM) and service oriented architecture (SOA) can position a company for growth as the economy begins to improve.
This paper is an overview of the issues that arise from implementing object persistence with a relational database. The basis for this paper is our recent experience with Object-Oriented projects that used relational database technology.
Microservices architecture is a new architectural style for creating loosely coupled but autonomous services. Emerging trends in technology—such as DevOps, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), containers, and continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) methods—let organizations create and manage these modular systems on an unprecedented scale that exceeds earlier approaches like service-oriented architecture (SOA). But organizations that refactor monolithic applications into microservices experience widely varying degrees of success. The key to using microservices effectively is a solid understanding of how and why organizations should use microservices to build applications

By enabling Adaptive SOA, Ultimus Adaptive Discovery takes SOA to the highest level of rapid deployment and agility. It accomplishes this by enabling business processes to be developed rapidly, and to embrace change in real-time. More importantly, it empowers business professionals and analysts who own processes to discover and change processes with IT playing the supporting role to manage the infrastructure.
One of the biggest hurdles that enterprises face is a lack of trust in IT’s ability to deliver business value. While a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) can sort things out by making systems more flexible and agile, this is only part of the answer. What’s missing is an effective model for engaging consistently with business teams throughout the whole lifecycle of IT investments.
SOA is a set of architectural and design principles that are probably new to most iSeries people. SOA considers an enterprise as consisting of many processes and services. SOA comes with the expected set of acronyms and jargon, such as "loose coupling" and "granularity" and is typically implemented with Web Services.
An innovation-centric approach that combines SOA and API management provides you with a robust integration from the Internet of Things to enterprise back-end systems. An approach to integration that can also generate new business insight and opportunities.

This whitepaper proposes a new approach to integration - API-led connectivity - that extends traditional service oriented approaches to reflect today’s connectivity needs. We’ll outline the core of this approach and implementation challenges and discuss how IT leaders can realize this vision in their own organizations.

Security is one of the main issues when deploying Web services in the enterprise. This white paper discusses the advantages of an appliance over an agent-oriented architecture for Web services security, how cross platform interoperation is immediate with a hardened appliance, and why web services security is different from web server security.
This paper discusses the challenges of managing applications in highly dynamic IT environments such as public and private Clouds. Modern enterprise applications are engineered for agility and are frequently deployed over flexible IT infrastructures.
Emerging information technologies like composite and multi-tier applications, service oriented architectures (SOA), virtualization, grid and cluster computing, and Web Service-based application delivery create an extraordinary opportunity for IT managers. With these dynamic technologies, they can provide business owners with IT services that are extremely flexible and agile, driving a more dynamic and competitive business.
