Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) involves complex technologies and, when done right, actors from the whole spectrum between business and IT. And it gets harder with new IT challenges such as cloud, agility and business architecture. How can we make SOA scale up ?
With the EasySOA project https://github.com/easysoa, Open Wide, Talend, Nuxeo, Bull and the INRIA labs bring a new component in the answer : an online, social, collaborative approach gathering business users and IT staff as well as SOA architects and developers. This allows on one side to add a lighter, agile SOA layer around « traditional » SOA, and on the other to provide an SOA framework that is really simple to use.
This presentation will show how managing SOA in a collaborative platform such as Nuxeo DM can improve visibility and business relevance of SOA. It will then focus on how this fosters collaboration on business requirements and fast prototyping, and how a tailored, OSGi-embedded entreprise service bus (ESB) can provide an useful "SOA sandbox". It will conclude by showing how it can branch out to an « on demand » Open Source solution, through a use case demonstrating seamless integration with a "traditional" SOA platform.
