  • 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

  • CW+ Quocirca report: Standardised battlefield SOA

    The battlespace environment presents a distinct set of issues that have been a challenge historically for information technologies (IT) and traditional architectural approaches. The inherent demands of the battlespace include the availability and reliability of information systems, with appropriate and available bandwidth for data transference, and total security. The emergence of service oriented architectures (SOA) and web services present a means of bringing a high degree of standardisation to the fore. Such an approach can deliver long-term benefits and enable defence forces to embrace and utilise new functionality rapidly and as cost-effectively as possible.
