Assuring SOA Success

Vote 0 Votes

Last week on the Forum, I asked: What's the Key Difference Between SOA that Succeeds and SOA That Fails?

In trying to be successful with SOA, I think this is an important discussion. An edited version of the answers are supplied below, and if you don't see the answer your looking for, then by all means, let me know right here.

Brenda Michelson kicked things off with: SOA that succeeds is business-driven!

Guy Loewy replied: Expectations

Dr. Jerry A. Smith said: SOA requires sound engineering principles, which should not be a paradigm shift but rather paradigm enforcement...

Joe McKendrick offered:
The problem is, most companies simply don't know if their SOA is succeeding or failing.

Ugo Corda reinforced Joe's statement with: I have two major issues with many SOA success stories...

Dr. Alexander Samarin replied: Right context. In my experience, the best context for SOA is a well-architected BPM

Todd Biske said: I do think the major difference between what companies claim as success or failure does come down to expectations and goals.

Thomas Culpepper replied: If you cost out the design and development of a "Service-Oriented Architecture" that adheres to SOA principles then you have a start at success

There's also some great back and forth in the discussion, so I'd definitely advise you to check it out.

And back to Joe's point, I think, What's a Key Metric for SOA Success would be a good Forum question in the future. Stay tuned!
