How Mature is Your Service Orientation? New Model Will Provide Guidance

Vote 0 Votes
As we get close to a full decade of SOA work, we know that some companies have very robust, well-functioning service oriented networks, while others are still struggling with Just a Bunch of Web Services.

To provide some yeardsticks, Thomas Erl announced that the APQC has formed a new working group to help assess organizations' service-oriented maturity levels:

"The Service-Orientation Maturity Model (SOMM) will be developed throughout 2011, as part of an international collaborative effort, with numerous on-site working group sessions being planned in different countries. A number of these sessions will be carried out during the upcoming International SOA + Cloud Symposium in Brazil this April, and several of the working group members will be speaking at that event as well. We hope to be able to release a first draft of the SOMM by Fall 2011 for public review."

Thomas also is seeking input from enterprise IT managers in a survey that will help guide the efforts of the SOMM Advisory Council.

In this blog (formerly known as "SOA in Action"), Joe McKendrick examines how BPM and related business and IT approaches can promote business transformation.
