This book introduces an original and far-reaching industry technology: Business Services Orchestration. BSO is the art of orchestrating the interactions between business services that may represent internal business processes of organizations. Waqar Sadiq and Felix Racca show how BSO enables information technology professionals to develop and design efficient business systems. In Section I they describe an in-depth architecture and methodology for modeling the BSO. Section II focuses on technologies, ranging from component models to programming languages to various kind of protocols. A case study in Section III explains how to apply orchestration to an actual business process.

The book starts out with a high level overview of what technology allows today in terms of autmating the orchestration of business services through executable business process models. It goes on to explain the architecture of the BPM tiere (Hyper-Tier of IT) It actually describes a full- fledged Methodology to create Orchestrations with a real example. The methodology includes the estimate of the ROI of the projects being analyzed! After the Methodology Chapter, the authors get into substantial detail of the different components of an Orchestration Suite. Very Technical. Finally in the last chapter it all comes together from a technical perspective. It made me re-evaluate my judgement on BPM. I now know that Integration, Orchestration, Workflow need to be one and the same thing under a single process model. The book can be challenging for non-technical audiences after chapter 4. But Business People should not miss chapters 1 through 3.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
