As with any type of enterprise system, SOA applications are prone to exceptions. Left unchecked, these unexpected conditions can have a profoundly negative impact on the systems—or, worse yet, the business running on those systems. Disrupted or failed business transactions lead to lost orders, lower revenue and customer dissatisfaction.

The problem is, SOA brings new challenges to discovering and resolving exceptions. Due to the loosely-coupled nature of these composite applications, Operations staff might not even know about a problem until it’s too late. Tracking down and resolving the issue can mean pouring over cryptic log entries and finger-pointing across teams.

Organizations that are serious about SOA need to address these issues proactively. They need a means of detecting exceptions in real time and then resolving them as quickly as possible.

Join eBizQ analyst, Beth Gold Bernstein and representatives from SOA pioneers AmberPoint and Vitria for an informative webcast on how to solve this important concern.

What You Will Learn by Attending this Webcast:

  • Why SOA-based applications are more prone to exceptions
  • The detriment of unexpected conditions on a business
  • The challenges of root-cause analysis across distributed, federated SOA systems
  • Solutions for reducing mean time to repair with SOA systems
