On-demand Webcast: Design Matters! An exploration of real-world service-oriented architecture
Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is supposed to provide flexibility and adaptability to the business. However, successfully designing SOA solutions can be a challenge. SOA solutions can fail in many ways, ranging from business misalignment and misinterpretation to investing in the wrong services to delivery of services that do not adhere to best practices. As a result, the solutions are not flexible or adaptable, and IT misses an opportunity to be an enabler for the business. Presenters share real-world experiences designing SOA solutions by exploring the use of IBM® Rational® Software Architect, IBM Rational SOMA, and automated best practices. Highlighting successes and lessons learned, presenters cover interpreting business needs, designing technically sound solutions, and ways to overcome enablement and skill challenges. This session also looks at the team perspective of getting everyone aligned, working together, and ensuring adherence to standards and best practices.
