T HE B ASIC C ONCEPT • One can consider cloud computing the extension of SOA out to cloud-delivered resources. • The trick is to determine which services, information, and processes are good candidates to reside in the clouds, as well as which cloud services should be abstracted within Source: IBM the existing or emerging SOA.
U NDERSTANDING THE P ROBLEM• Cloud providers must integrate with existing enterprise systems to become more valuable.• However, existing internal integration needs to exist to ensure: – Production and consumption of structured information – Semantic mediation – Security mediation – Service enablement – Firewall management – Transactional integrity – Unstructured data – Holistic management of the complete integration chain
REMEMBER, THEREARE A FEWTECHNICAL ISSUES • Semantic and metadata management, or, the management of the differentTHAT YOU MUST information representations amount the external services and internal systems. • TransformationADDRESS… and routing, or, accounting for those data differences during run time. • Governance across all systems, meaning, not giving up the notion of security and control when extending your SOA to the global SOA. • Discovery and service management, meaning, how to find and leverage services inside or outside of your enterprise, and how to keep track of those services through their maturation. • Information consumption, processing, and delivery, or, how to effectively move information to and from all interested systems. • Connectivity and adapter management, or, how to externalize and internalize information and services from very old and proprietary systems. • Process orchestration and service, and process abstraction, or, the ability to abstract the services and information flows into bound processes, thus creating a solution
