SOA Process Issues

Disjointed SOA is all too prevalent.

  • Business Process: There has been much marketing hype around BPM and SOA with very little substance.
  • Software Solutions: Too often SOA projects are isolated from the real world of software solution delivery.
  • Runtime Operations: Day to day software runtime management tends to be treated as something of an afterthought in most SOA approaches.
A common failure of software processes is that they do not enable good project and program management, because they are “closed” and task driven.

An improved SOA process needs to address the following issues:
  • Relationship and interaction between enterprise and project and program architects
  • Balancing solution and enterprise architecture
  • Achieving full life cycle governance
