Overview

Service-Oriented Modeling Service Analysis, Design, and Architecture

Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is the hottest topic in the IT arena. Providing a comprehensive plan to interrelate business with technology, SOA combines the talents and skills of an entire organization, with its requisite needs and computing know-how. Presenting the necessary tools—processes, best practices, and standards—for developing a sound SOA, Service-Oriented Modeling: Service Analysis, Design, and Architecture introduces a service-oriented modeling framework that employs an agile and universal business and technology language to facilitate analysis, design, and architecture initiatives.

Focusing on a general service and development life-cycle model, the service-oriented modeling disciplines presented here will enable you to not only integrate your existing legacy applications, but also to incorporate new ideas and concepts to address organizational concerns. These proposed best practices can be applied to all technologies, software platforms, and languages despite their physical location or ownership. As a bonus, business and IT professionals—including managers, business analysts, business architects, technical architects, team leaders, and developers—can now share the burden of software development initiatives as they are commissioned to bear equal responsibility and accountability throughout their organizations.

Based on author Michael Bell's twenty years of experience in the software, modeling, and architecture trenches for such high-volume clients as JPMorgan, Chase, and American Express, Service-Oriented Modeling introduces a state-of-the-art and holistic modeling language that can facilitate an SOA implementation as well as advanced service life-cycle concepts and processes that can be employed to manage service-oriented projects. The book enables business and IT personnel to equally partner in service-oriented modeling efforts and to represent their unique perspectives.

Offering easy-to-understand modeling language and notation that are simple to use, the book provides answers to the most common questions that face enterprise leaders concerning service-oriented architecture development life-cycle initiatives. The book deftly explores:

  • How to establish and implement a service-oriented modeling language
  • The service life-cycle model and its various building blocks
  • The management of service-oriented modeling disciplines
  • Service-oriented conceptualization process
  • A step-by-step, easy-to-employ concept discovery process
  • Service-oriented discovery and analysis mechanisms
  • Service-oriented design strategies, service relationships, logical compositions of services, and service behavior analysis
  • Fundamental aspects of service-oriented software architecture, including conceptual and logical architecture modeling disciplines

With the information gleaned from Service-Oriented Modeling, you will obtain a comprehensive service modeling knowledge base and reference; service modeling tools that can increase efficiency and productivity in the workplace; defined goals, milestones, and service modeling activities; and defined roles and responsibilities to get you started with SOA, ASAP.
