Aligning IT with business strategy through SOA is best done in the context of an enterprise architecture. With this in mind, SOA needs to be based on a reference architecture that enables a logical series of SOA projects to support a comprehensive SOA roadmap. During this webinar, we will explore three fundamental aspects of establishing SOA within the enterprise:

  • The SOA Reference Architecture - A foundation for building a truly flexible enterprise architecture, based on key concepts such as separation of concerns, modularity, and isolation of services.

  • The SOA Governance Model - An extension of IT Governance focused on the lifecycle of services, to help ensure that organizations work as a team to realize the full business benefits of SOA.

  • An SOA Implementation Roadmap - A plan for incremental adoption of SOA with projects that meet the immediate needs of the business, guided by an organization's long term goals and strategic objectives.
