EA Solutions Enhanced by SOA Adoption

  • EA Solutions Enhanced by SOA Adoption

    Today’s organizations face massive pressures for change and survival.  Complex sets of choices abound for potential solutions to enterprise problems.  Yet, the bombardment of messages overwhelms business and IT decision-makers.  How can you begin to sort out all of the facts in order to avoid false starts which can erode your transformation investments?

    Service Oriented Architecture still remains a mystery for many organizations who could realize significant value from its adoption.  This webcast addresses how to begin a successful journey to facilitate service-oriented enterprise transformation strategies using the toolsets and resources already in existence. It addresses the major inhibitors to SOA adoption, focuses on a subset that have agreed-upon best practice remedies, and suggests how you can implement SOA adoption initiatives with the same in-house capabilities you use to establish EA. This is not a technology-driven seminar, nor is it designed to teach or demystify SOA. Rather it assumes that the business case and basic ROI for SOA have been accepted in general, and that now, positive actions must be taken to realize the vision.  

    In this session you will learn:

    • The major classes of inhibitors impeding SOA adoption.
    • Best practice SOA-enhanced remedies that can be implemented to attack the major inhibitors to SOA.
    • How to use your existing EA structure to begin successful SOA adoption strategies.
    • Enterprise architects seeking to augment their EA programs with service orientation principles to create more flexible architecture to adapt to change.
    • Anyone in either a business or IT organization who is looking to reduce the risk of SOA adoption through effective entry points
    • Existing SOA Program Teams who need to organize for successful SOA adoption by optimizing and adapting existing organizational structures to manage the transition to SOA.
