BPM and SOA
As businesses move away from buying applications to buying the means of facilitating business processes, a different approach to technology assets is required.

SOA From a Management Perspective: Part One
The big buzzword in enterprise-wide package software is service-oriented architecture (SOA). SOA promises to solve a company's software ills, making life easier for information technology departments. This research note takes a look at this new architecture and highlights some concerns.
: SOA From a Management Perspective: Part One SOA From a Management Perspective: Part One Joe Strub - January 5, 2007 Read Comments We have been hearing about service-oriented architecture (SOA) for some time. Now, major software players are starting to lay out their plans and strategies. Some are even willing to assign delivery dates. As a company, you cannot ignore SOA, since we are constantly told that, from a software perspective, it is the best thing since sliced bread or, to use an updated analogy,
Designing for Variety and Change in SOA: Composite Service Adapters
Integration projects that attempt to fuse processes with application and system interfaces are likely to fail. A more pragmatic approach involves service-oriented architecture (SOA), where integration is determined by business requirements rather than technology factors. However, SOA alone is insufficient. Composite adapter services provide a layer of abstraction between service requestors and service providers, enabling cost-effective and versatile enterprise integration.

Architecture Evolution: From Web-based to Service-oriented Architecture
Traditional enterprise systems have proven difficult to change and extend. The inherent problem of old core code and business logic duplication is part of the reason traditional enterprise resource planning systems have not readily taken to e-commerce.
: Evolution: From Mainframe to SOA . Challenges of Extending Enterprise Resource Planning to the Internet Extending back-office applications to the Internet stems from the desire of many user organizations not to reinvent the wheel in their scramble to create e-commerce-ready applications. By extending the existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to that end, organizations not only leverage their investment in the ERP solution, but can also speed the development of their e-commerce capabilities.

: services model offered by SOA and SaaS has made ERP more attractive to all market segments. In the past, smaller organizations would not consider ERP initiatives due to ERPs exorbitant costs. ERP implementations were associated with multimillion dollar engagements that demanded the support of a team of consultants that was hired to overhaul an organization s entire information technology (IT) infrastructure and operational systems.
