Presentation: "Project-oriented SOA"

Time: Friday 13:30 - 14:30

Location: Olympic

Abstract: SOA, due to its global-centric nature, is often viewed as incompatible with project-based software delivery lifecycles. Thus, most companies find themselves with the dilemma of how to effectively advance an SOA initiatives and continue to deliver projects at the same time. The solution is to combine service lifecycle management, architecture, SOA governance, funding, and SOA metrics into a single comprehensive program. The ultimate goal is to ensure that through addressing project needs services are being effectively designed and implemented and that leverage takes place and is verifiable and that the overall SOA program objectives are being achieved. This presentation introduces an effective technique for moving your SOA program forward through an incremental, project-based approach.
