Second Annual SOA Case Study Competition Announced

Vote 0 Votes
ebizQ colleague Brenda Michelson has just informed me that the SOA Consortium, in conjunction with CIO Magazine, is once again holding it's annual SOA case study competition.

The competition is open to organizations of all sizes, including government agencies, which have successfully delivered business or mission value using a SOA approach.

Similar to the inaugural contest in 2008, the goal of the SOA Case Study Competition is to highlight business success stories and lessons learned to provide proof points and insights for other organizations considering or pursuing SOA adoption. To qualify for the competition, the SOA project must be complete with demonstrated business results.

Entries will be judged on the complexity of the business problem addressed, the ROI/Business Value achieved (Agility/Innovation/Flexibility/Optimization/Resilience), the level and sophistication of the cross-organizational collaboration (Business/Technical), the usage of SOA approaches and supporting technology and lessons learned. In addition to one overall winner, organizations will be recognized by industry/government.

SOA Case Study Competition winners will be announced at the SOA Consortium meeting in San Antonio, Texas on September 16, 2009 and will be featured on the SOA Consortium website and in a fall issue of CIO magazine and on CIO.com in September. Submissions will be accepted through June 26, 2009.

Last year's winner was Synovus Financial, along with runners-up Penn National Insurance, Con-Way, Inc., the US Department of Defense, SunGard Financial Systems, and Canada Health Infoway.

Thanks for helping us spread the word here (and there).

Last year's submissions and winners were excellent. I'm looking forward to hear how SOA has been used beyond early adopting industries.

As well, I'm curious to learn from folks if/how they are combining SOA and other strategies such as BPM, event processing and (of course) cloud computing, to deliver business value.

Thanks again,
