Overview: Once a company has completed initial SOA projects, the number of deployed services increases and the key question no longer is how to build services, but rather how to efficiently manage the development and operation of services on an enterprise scale. What is needed is a concise roadmap that guides the evolution of SOA such that IT can deliver the right value at the right time to the business. This roadmap has to address multiple dimensions of IT: architecture, development processes, applications, information, etc.
This presentation will outline a model against which the degree of service oriented maturity of an organization can be assessed, as well as a process (i.e. the roadmap) for assessing the current and desired degree of service maturity of an organization, and for developing a plan for how to get to the target state.
Why Should you Attend: Do you know where your services are? Many companies face the challenge of multiple SOA projects initiated by different development teams that are not coordinated. They use different policies (or none at all) to govern the service development and rollout, resulting in poor reuse and unmanageable service levels. Data and APIs do not adhere to corporate standards, and every developer has her own preference when it comes to selecting technologies. The number of Enterprise Service Bus products, repositories, communication protocols, data formats, and security controls increases to a point where the premise of SOA - to make IT more efficient - turns into its opposite: services become the next generation silos.
