Education Enterprise Services Repository Using Service Oriented Architecture
In the education sector, business and learning applications need to be modernized to meet an extended community of learners and other stakeholders. Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) prescribes a new way of building applications within a more powerful, flexible programming model, reducing development and ownership costs as also implementation risks. In this paper, the authors have proposed a technology, data and application architecture using SOA. Apart from the services required by the technology, data architecture and application architecture, a set of other services is also needed. This paper also discusses the need and contents of a service repository for an Education Enterprise. Some high granularity services required in any academic setup are also described.
