  3. 3. SOA Challenge <ul><li>Inadequate emphasis on </li></ul><ul><li>Business & Architectural </li></ul><ul><li>aspects of SOA </li></ul><ul><li>Poor (if any) traceability </li></ul><ul><li>of Services to business </li></ul><ul><li>processes & functions, </li></ul><ul><li>compliance.. </li></ul><ul><li>Many standards organizations are developing standards with possible overlaps and rapid churn </li></ul><ul><li>Vendors are repositioning their products as SOA enabled, end-to-end solution and takeovers leaving the Consumer with the burden to identify the best of breed solution </li></ul><ul><li>..We know this already…so what is OMG doing? </li></ul>
  4. 4. SOA SIG Mission & Participants <ul><li>Mission </li></ul><ul><li>Support a Model Driven Architecture (MDA) approach to SOA that links architectural, business and technology views of Services, including Business Process Management (BPM) and Event-Driven Architecture (EDA) </li></ul><ul><li>Identify and foster development of OMG modeling standards for SOA that integrate with and complement standards developed by other organizations such as W3C, Open Group and OASIS… </li></ul><ul><li>Participants </li></ul><ul><li>IBM, HP, SAP, BEA, Unisys, EDS, RTI, Model Driven Systems, Adaptive, MEGA, MetLife, VISA, Bank of America, CitiGroup, Boeing, Raytheon, Rhysome, AptSoft, XAware, SOA COP, SOA Consortium, The Open Group, OASIS, Satyam, US EPA, ebizQ, Georgetown University, NIST, Liberty-Mutual, Penn National, Prima-Solutions, OSOA, Nortel, Indiana University… </li></ul>Other… Relational .NET J2EE EDA BPM EA/Business Models MDA SOA Implementation Stacks
