Adoption and Value of Service Oriented Architecture in the Industry

Wiktionary defines SOA as: “. . . a computer systems architectural style for creating and using business processes, packaged as services, throughout their lifecycle. SOA also defines and provisions the IT infrastructure to allow different applications to exchange data and participate in business processes. These functions are loosely coupled with the operating systems and programming languages underlying the applications. SOA separates functions into distinct units (services), which can be distributed over a network and can be combined and reused to create business applications. These services communicate with each other by passing data from one service to another, or by coordinating an activity between two or more services. SOA concepts are often seen as built upon, and evolving from older concepts of distributed computing and modular programming. . . .“

In this presentation, Mr. Sanchez will discuss these SOA topics: - Review market maturity and industry adoption of SOA - Understand the principals and practices behind successful SOA implementations - Explore the business innovation focus areas for SOA and - How to achieve maximum business value with SOA
