Service Oriented Architecture
With effective implementation, there is a powerful relationship between Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Business Process Management.
Think Big! Start Small! SOA is successful with experienced and pragmatic people.
base2Services’ approach is pragmatic and agile. Using proven best practices in architecture, design and development, SOA is not hard to implement.
To focus interactions between business and technology groups on the capabilities provided – the services – rather than the actual software stack and mechanisms in daily use. The motivation for providing these services is to facilitate effective Business Process Management (BPM). SOA provides executable models of the business operations that can be composed and recomposed by business analysis into orchestrated processes. This can provide a unified, end to end view across the manual and automated components of enterprise wide processes, which in addition, can now be effectively profiled, audited, and managed as a single composite application. It must be emphasised that SOA and BPM are about excellence in Architecture and Operational Management, and not at all about specific software vendor products or technologies.
Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is about the enabling of services that will benefit more than one end system or department with an aim at decreasing overall operational costs.
SOA provides many more benefits including
- Higher Performance Development Teams
- More visibility of interfaces
- The ability to apply SLA’s effectively and accurately
- Long term Operational cost savings
