Planning and Building an
Architecture that Lasts:
The Dynamic Enterprise
In most organizations today, technology infrastructures have become highly
complex and difficult to manage, with significant overlap of systems and
applications, further complicated by the fact that these systems are not well
integrated. There is a clear need for a standard Enterprise Reference Architecture as
an architectural framework to help organizations make better decisions and enable
them to leverage existing technology investments.
TIBCO Software, a leading provider of software for real-time business,
commissioned Doculabs to develop this white paper as a guide to the considerations
involved in building an architecture that will last through the years. In this
document, we advocate an approach based on the service-oriented architecture
(SOA) model as a framework and guidepost toward the building of a solid
architecture that will meet an organization’s needs – both current and future. We
also report on how other future looking companies, HP and Intel, view building an
architecture that will last.
