Defining the Importance of SOA

IBM Software Group

… a service?


A
repeatable
business task



e.g.,
check customer credit;
open new account

What is …..?

… service orientation?

A way of integrating your
business as linked
services

and the outcomes that
they bring

… service oriented
architecture (SOA)?

An IT
architectural
style

that supports

service orientation

… a composite
application?

A set of
related &
integrated

services that
support a business
process built on an SOA

As Patterns Have Evolved, So Has IBM


Point
-
to
-
Point connection
between applications


Simple, basic connectivity

Messaging Backbone


EAI connects applications
via a centralized hub


Easier to manage larger
number of connections

Enterprise Application
Integration (EAI)


Integration of services through
an Enterprise Service Bus


Flexible connections with well
defined, standards
-
based
interfaces

Service Orientated
Integration

SOA builds flexibility on your current investments

The next stage of integration

IBM Software Group


Automates the
publication of Jobs,
Maps or Federated
Queries as services


Controls the invocation
of these services via
WebServices or EJB
protocols


Enables workload
balancing and ensured
services


Data specific business
rules and definitions can
be leveraged for batch
and

real time purposes

Value to our customers


Improved information availability and consistency


Leverage existing investment in DataStage, QualityStage, and
Federation Server


Enable data warehouse teams to be heroes
-

increase their
business value to the organization


Move from simply reporting on the business to imbedding critical
information into business processes in support of strategic initiatives


Leverage investment in WebSphere and IBM SOA initiatives


Information Server is now integrated with Process Server


SOMA now ties in Information


Information Services Architecture Workshop (ISAW) helps them
understand, define, and model integration services


Reduce development costs through reuse of integration logic


Improve governance and control over data access and usage

WebSphere Process Server and Information Server


Information Server becomes a “first class citizen” in Business
Process Modeling


Service discovery from within WebSphere development tools
illustrates meta data strengths of Information Server


Seamless Process flows including Information Server are
easily

constructed and deployed


No more spaghetti code for information integration inside Process Server


WebSphere Process Server sites are already “SOA
-
aware”


Start talking to them about the data!

Summary: Information as a Service using WISD


Automatic deployment of DataStage, QualityStage,
Federation/DB2 artifacts as reusable
services


Services can be invoked in real
-
time from:


Remote platforms/applications


Java & .Net applications


Popular Application Servers


Business rules can be applied across batch
and
on
-
demand
applications


Built
-
in load balancing and pooling strategy
