    SOA Methodologies in Practice SOA Methodologies in Practice Presentation Transcript

    • SOA Methodologies in Practice Sandeep Purao , Ph.D. Associate Professor of IST Enterprise Informatics and Integration Center Standards Interest Group, Socio-technical Systems Lab
    • We Are.. College of Information Sciences and Technology
    • Services everywhere … SSME SOA SOC Web Services Methods Tools Co-creation Governance Systems Integration Service Economy Consulting Services Service Networks BPM Service Ecosystem
    • SOA
      • Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an architectural style for solution architects to create and manage new value added solutions by leveraging various solution artifacts such as business processes, services, packaged applications, and manageable attributes throughout their lifecycle.
      (IBM, July 2008)
    • SOA Principles
      • SOA is a “durable” change in application architecture
        • The system must be Modular
        • Modules must be Distributable
        • The modules must have clearly defined Interfaces
        • Modules that implement the service must be Swappable
        • The modules must be Shareable
      (Gartner, January 2008)
    • Hype Cycle: Integration (Gartner, Late 2007)
    • SOA ++
      • EDA
        • A sub-style of SOA
        • Event notifications
        • Complex event processing
      • WOA
        • A means of implementing SOA
        • URIs, formats and protocols
        • Core and Extended Service Layers
          • WS and WS*
      (Gartner, Late 2008)
    • Hype Cycle: WS Standards (Gartner, Late 2007)
    • An Example
      • Alter’s Service System Fundamentals
        • Argues for a unified view: “service systems are work systems”
        • Suggested ‘representation styles’ for services, e.g. Work system snapshot consisting of
          • Customer, Services, Processes, Participants, Information and Technologies
        • Contrasting WSLC against SDLC emphasizing reuse yet several unanticipated interventions
      (Alter 2008)
    • Another example
      • Rouse’s Service Value Networks
        • Actors: consumers, service providers, enablers and auxiliary enablers
        • Applications in several domains including healthcare
        • Complexity computations extending Shannon’s entropy
        • Analytical possibilities following economic and industrial engineering perspectives
      (Basole and Rouse 2008)
    • Our own ongoing work
      • Designing and Monitoring
      • With Robinson and Jain
        • Harvesting services from legacy applications
        • Capturing service interaction protocols
        • Goal-based monitoring
        • Feedback to suggest evolution possibilities
    • A few problems
      • A selective list based on anecdotal data / observations
        • Focus on technology
        • Business-IT relationship
        • A problem of scale
        • An ‘all-or-nothing’ proposition
        • Do we know ‘how-to’
        • Transition plan
        • Governance concerns
