IBM's Smart SOA approach is about funneling the ‘smarts’ from over 8000 customer
engagements back into IBM’s offerings, professional services, and best practices. It’s about
helping you maximize your IT value from your SOA initiatives. It demands that the principles of
simplicity and robustness be applied, regardless of how basic or ad
vanced your project is. It
recognizes that your needs ar
e evolving along a continuum of
maturity. Although you want to
make sure that you are meeting basic needs with basic projects, you also want to make sure
you have room to grow when your needs become m
ore advanced. For example, IBM has
introduced a set of detailed IT best practices for each level of maturity in the Smart SOA
continuum. Leveraging research and experiences in working with thousands of custo

SOA approach supports designing software that dissolves applications into separate “services”
that can be used independent of the applications of which they are a part, and the computing
platforms on which they
run. IBM supplies SOA products and professional services for creation,
reuse and governance of SOA services. IBM provides tools such as WebSphere Message Broker,
WebSphere Service Registry and Repository, Rational Asset Manager and IBM Tivoli Composite
plication Manager for SOA that provide SOA infrastructure needed to take advantage of

To support critical missions a
nd mandates, the U.S. Federal Government operates thousands of
systems with an ever increasing need for integration across those disparate
systems. Composite Software’s Data services, within a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA),
optimized means by which to query, aggregate, and deliver data from numerous
systems for analysis, decision making, and mission operations. SOA data services benefits
include better interoperability and reuse of standards
based services which translates to
flexibility and greater productivity and provides more robust, timely, and complete information
to those who need it. As a result, federal agencies and departments meet mission requirements
more quickly and effectively.
The need for more operational flexibility and increased information sharing, plus pressures to
enable more efficient processing, are creating a new level of internal IT
challenges across the
Government industry. In addition to the focus on optimizing existing processes, today’s
organizations face diverse demands
driving the need for changes in capabilities and
functionality. Organizations are thus concentrating their ef
forts on areas that can help drive
efficiencies, quickly adapt to change and achieve compliance. As organizations look for
opportunities to leverage their IT investments and unleash technology

oriented architecture (SOA) may be the answer.
At Bay State, we believe that
SOA can help organizations increase efficiencies by creating, for example, a more integrated
or policy administration, and agency/citizen support. SOA may also help control
costs by eliminating redundant interfaces, building on existing IT investments, and providing an
infrastructure in which users can easily access information and perform transac
CBDI is a global technology services company with world leading expertise in application
modernization and service architecture and engineering. The company has led best practice development
in service architecture and model driven development pro
viding clients in all industry sectors and
government with implemented solutions as well as documented, repeatable processes.
Our mission is to
help large organizations fundamentally change the way they respond to business needs through
innovation in modu
lar architecture and service engineering practices. We make the vision of SOA a
reality. To us, SOA offers a real opportunity to change the way business and technology work together
and represents the only credible response to modernizing the massive portf
olio of legacy applications that
consume over 70% of the typical IT budget. Implementing SOA across an enterprise is hard work, but
done properly produces significant ROI and greater business flexibility for years to come.
