Titled: “The Path to SOA with Middleware Solutions, Enables On demand ”
Service-Oriented-Architecuture is an infrastructure strategy that relies on Middleware, the connective tissue that binds together different applications so companies get more mileage out of the software they’ve spent untold dollars and man-hours to develop and maintain. SOA essentially “wraps” existing applications into services components in a way that lets them share data across a truly heterogenous environment. Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is now a key strategic approach. Almost three years ago IBM announced its On Demand strategy, and you will find that integration is key to On Demand and SOA is that path to integration. You will also find that IBM has selected Web Services as the primary technology for integration solutions and building reusable services in an SOA. This enables business to work faster and more efficiently with the ability to integrate applications and information with customers, partners and suppliers. IBM’s overall strategy is end-to-end integration of business processes.
The presentation Titled: “The Path to SOA with Middleware Solutions, Enables On demand” will discuss the imperatives and integration challenges facing today’s developers, IT projects and CIO’s. We will take a look at how Middleware enables Service-Oriented-Architecture (SOA) and helps ease the pain in developing applications from a component based approach. The basic concepts of SOA and Web services are now part of our everyday language and recognized as a suitable architectural style for crafting modern enterprise applications. IBM’s Middleware is designed to more easily integrate with customers existing systems, regardless of the underlying technology, and allows customers to grow from a single Web service to an enterprise wide SOA deployment. The underlying issues regarding “what makes good services” and how do I implement an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) has become increasingly critical for ensuring the successful implementation of SOA. IBM’s Middleware enables the path to an Service-Oriented-Architecture approach that can help you with your Business Integration efforts.
