Today we would like to point you to a new article series termed as „Industrial SOA“ authored by the „Masons of SOA„. The series is dedicated to the exploration of contemporary SOA topics and issues and highlights some of the more recent innovations in practice that will especially be of interest to those who want to learn some techniques that go beyond the academic essentials.
Abstract: „SOA and service-orientation have laid the foundation for a variety of emergent service technology innovations, while the original building blocks of SOA and service-orientation continue to evolve by embracing fundamental service technologies, concepts and practices. These new technology innovations do not replace service-orientation; they use it as their basis. Service-orientation continues to evolve towards a factory approach, towards industrializing integrated platforms, such as BI, master data management (MDM), mobile front-ends, BPM, adaptive processes, Big Data and Cloud Computing – all of which add architectural layers upon SOA-based infrastructure. All of these technologies can interface via standardized data and functions, published as service contracts, in order to avoid redundancy – that’s service-orientation.“
The 14 part series begins with a preface by Oracle veteran Juergen Kress, and then moves on to the first of thirteen articles. The articles are & will be published on OTN and the Service Technology Magazine.
