Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) has for quiet some time now been a 'Horizon model' for Enterprise for achieving the vision of bridging gaps between Propositions, Requirements, Architecture, Development, Operations and benefits. SOA advances as much complex challenges for the implementation, as the number of promises it holds out for a layered, changeable, structured, componentized and governable Business-IT architecture.
The foremost of these challenges is in 'multiplexing' the Services based implementation with a transformation of the associated legacy architecture to SOA. Thus classic SOA based Enterprise projects are closely aligned to ITIL/ITSM initiatives for Re-discovering Technology assets, Re-engineering and mapping to Business objectives.
Technologically, SOA is essentially the 'Web Services' way of developing applications, but from an implementation perspective it is deeply ingrained into Business modeling and Business re-engineering for more robust, granular, visible and measurable processes. Designed from a services perspective and implemented as a set of loosely coupled systems, an SOA can also help integrate disparate applications effectively.
ITFlux can help Enterprises with SOA Expertise at both Consulting and Developmental levels. ITFlux is the implementation partner for Cordys, which is one of the pioneer products in this Arena. The templates and methodologies engineered by ITFlux enable clients to migrate the heterogeneous legacy applications to SOA based; in line with the objectives behind the overall business context of the transformation.
