SOA Reference Architecture

 

 

A Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) facilitates the creation of flexible, re-usable assets for enabling end-to-end business solutions. Increasingly, companies are adopting the principles and techniques associated with SOA for different types of projects in different industries worldwide.

 

The use of the SOA Reference Architecture (SOA RA) is a key enabler for the achievement of the value propositions of an SOA.

 

This specification presents an SOA RA, which provides guidelines and options for making architectural, design, and implementation decisions in the implementation of solutions. The goal of this SOA RA is to provide a blueprint for creating or evaluating architecture.

  • ESB & SOA Infrastructure

    While some industry experts claim that an enterprise service bus (ESB) is critical to a successful service-oriented architecture (SOA) implementation, others are pointing towards emerging technologies which are shifting the focus away from ESBs. How important are ESBs to SOA and the enterprise, and will new effort to understand them pay off in the long-term?

    This e-book provides valuable insight on SOA, ESBs and the modern enterprise. Topics covered include:

    • The role of ESBs in application integration
    • Tips on open source and SOA infrastructure
    • And Forrester's take on where ESB fits in today's enterprise architecture

  • Creating a SOA Integration Strategy

    If you're operating in a modern IT environment, it's probably pretty complex, filled with varied, disparate applications and systems. As a result, integrating this heterogeneous landscape can be quite the challenge - that's where SOA and middleware appliances come in.

    This expert e-guide explores the benefits of middleware integration and why they've become so popular for today's IT environments. Also, get an in-depth look at three real-life SOA integration projects and how they succeed in connecting applications and processes.
