  • Architektur auf der Alm

    • December 2012 to Present
    Team Members: Juergen Kress

    Erweitern Sie ihr Netzwerk – Teilen Sie Erfahrungen – Gewinnen Sie neue Impulse

    immer sind wir in unseren alltäglichen Arbeitsablauf eingebunden. Für einen Erfahrungsaustausch und neue Ideen bleibt oft nicht der notwendige Freiraum. Gemeinsam möchten wir ein Forum für offene Diskussion schaffen und Sie herzlich einladen. In der vergangenen Jahren erarbeiteten wir viele neu Ideen, die wir in unseren Artikeln z.B. in einer 14-teiligen Serie im Javamagazin, im SOA Spezial Sonderheft oder auf Konferenzen wie den „SOA- und Business Integration Days“ präsentierten, häufig in gemeinsamen Workshops. Der Erfahrungsaustausch und die unterschiedliche Sichtweise auf Herausforderungen spielt dabei eine entscheidende Rolle. Nun möchten wir unser Netzwerk erweitern und Ihnen die Möglichkeit geben teilzunehmen, gemeinsam neues zu erarbeiten, frei von jeglichem Marketing. Die Veranstaltung findet vom 17.-19. Januar 2013 in der ASI-Lodge am Achensee in Österreich statt. Die Teilnehmerzahl ist stark begrenzt und eine Anmeldung nur auf persönliche Einladung möglich.

    Die Gründungsveranstaltung möchten wir thematisch unter das Motto der Adaptiven Prozesse stellen und diskutieren, ob hier deutlich mehr an Potential für die IT-Abteilungen zu heben ist, über die klassischen, normativen, BPM- und Prozessautomatisierungsansätze hinaus. Nicht mehr der Taylorismus dient als Vorbild, sondern die optimale Lösung für den Wissensarbeiter von morgen. Zur Einführung in das Thema und Vorbereitung auf das Event, dient die unten genannte Literatur, insbesondere der Einführungsartikel unseres Teams.

  • Oracle OTN ArchBeat Podcast: SOA and Cloud - Where's This Relationship Going?

    • https://blogs.oracle.com/archbeat/entry/podcast_show_notes_soa_and
    • April 16, 2014

    Opinions vary on the relationship between service oriented architecture and cloud computing. Some say SOA is essential to the cloud. Others say cloud is entirely possible without SOA. In this three-part program three members of the Masons of SOA, the group behind the Industrial SOA article series, offer their insight into the issue.

  • Cloud Computing and SOA

    • Service Technology Magazine
    • March 28, 2014

    Cloud Computing Hype

    Why is everyone talking about cloud computing? Drawn-out, expensive IT projects that are planned and implemented without any benefits for the business stakeholders are commonplace. In contrast, cloud computing offers business users the chance to immediately implement services with usage-based billing that are tailored to their requirements, often without the need to consult with the IT department.

    However, aspects like security, architecture, availability, and standards are often not evaluated. Cloud consumers find themselves at the mercy of the cloud provider. Scenarios that require changing cloud providers after a cloud provider goes bankrupt, and the associated moving of data and/or applications, have not yet been sufficiently tested. Business continuity should play a key role from the start of a cloud evaluation process.

    One of the greatest challenges here is the integration of existing data and systems into the cloud solution. Without integration spanning between clouds and on-premise systems, processes can only be executed in isolation, leading to cloud-specific silos of isolated solutions. Important information for users is not available across processes and systems. Problems that would have occurred in the company's internal IT are now shifted to the cloud provider. To prevent "legacy clouds" or solutions that are hard to maintain, it is important to manage the entire architecture proactively and, in particular, the integration into the cloud. Even if cloud providers want us to believe otherwise, not every aspect of IT can be outsourced to cloud solutions!

  • SOA and Business Processes: You are the Process!

    • Service Technology Magazine
    • January 31, 2014

    Business Process Management is a management discipline that thrives to improve process performance. If done right, BPM leads to appealing, user-friendly processes that provide information about productivity, that measure performance and that illustrate the potential for improvement while indicating the exact location in the overall process that potentially benefits from one of various process optimization strategies.

  • MDM and SOA: Be Warned!

    • Service Technology Magazine
    • December 19, 2013

    "You will waste your investment in SOA unless you have enterprise information that SOA can exploit."

    – Gartner

    This quote from Gartner, Inc. describes the relationship between service-oriented architecture (SOA) and master data management (MDM) very vividly. An essential principle behind SOA is the reuse of components and the flexibility of using these components to support new functionalities or processes. MDM provides universal components (or services) for consistent data maintenance and distribution. Here the architecture concepts and principles of SOA run into MDM.

    This article begins by giving a brief motive for using MDM and a conceptualization. It will then go on to present typical variants for possible MDM architecture concepts, and illustrate the interplay of MDM and SOA with reference to the architecture pattern.

  • Event-Driven SOA

    • Service Technology Magazine
    • November 21, 2013

    Abstract: If we consider real companies and their business transactions, we see that the real world is not really service-driven at all, but much more event-driven. A new customer is created in the system, a new car reservation is made, a vehicle is returned or needs to be taken to the shop. All of these "functions" can be supported by services, but often also by precisely defined process chains.

    However, complex business processes can rarely be automated "in one piece," as the real exceptions and dependencies of diverse business processes are highly dynamic. That brings us to the point where the concept of "event" becomes useful in our architectures. In this article, we therefore want to shine light on event-driven architectures and tie them into our current argumentation chains in SOA.

  • SOA in Real Life: Mobile Solutions

    • Service Technology Magazine
    • October 24, 2013

    Abstract: Any place, any time: the old promise from the dotcom age has never been more relevant. With the release of the iPhone, Apple set off a huge amount of hype. Many people now have a laptop with broadband Internet connection and/or WLAN or UMTS Internet access. Yet these devices are still too large, too awkward, and take too long to boot up to be usable at any time. On the other hand, almost everyone has a smartphone these days, making them more mobile than ever in today's economy.

  • SOA and User-Interfaces

    • Service Technology Magazine
    • September 30, 2013

    The interaction between user-interfaces and services in an SOA is an often-neglected topic. This article focuses on the particular challenges that need to be overcome when creating user-interfaces while entire process chains have to be called and interacted with. After outlining some general architectural considerations, we will describe a practical application of Thomas Erl's UI Mediator pattern that will be accompanied by our own technical experience.

  • Understanding Service Compensation

    • Service Technology Magazine
    • August 28, 2013

    Some of the most important SOA design patterns that we have successfully applied in projects will be described in this article. These include the Compensation pattern and the UI mediator pattern, the Common Data Format pattern and the Data Access pattern. All of these patterns are included in Thomas Erl's book, "SOA Design Patterns" [REF-1], and are presented here in detail, together with our practical experiences. We begin our "best of" SOA pattern collection with the Compensation pattern

    Numerous security standards have been created in order to realize these comprehensive security requirements. These include WS-SecurityPolicy, WS-Trust, XML Encryption, XKMS, XML Signature, WS-Federation, WS-SecureConversation, SAML1, SAML2, and many more. Currently, no product or open source framework can fully support all of these standards. In our experience, incompatibilities arise whenever an SOA product or deployed Web service framework needs to communicate outside of its small ecosystem.

  • Securing the SOA Landscape

    • Service Technology Magazine
    • July 24, 2013

    Security requirements are usually relatively easy to manage when using local restrictions in conventional closed systems. They become more complex in the distributed system landscape of an SOA. Not limited to only an application or an application domain anymore, security must work across a range of applications and business processes.

    Numerous security standards have been created in order to realize these comprehensive security requirements.

  • Enterprise Service Bus

    • Service Technology Magazine
    • June 27, 2013

    Everyone seems to need to use an enterprise service bus (ESB) nowadays, but there is much confusion about its actual benefit and the various concepts this term entails. This uncertainty is revealed in statements like, "Help! My boss says we need an ESB," or "Why do I need an ESB at all? Can't I achieve the same thing with BPEL or BPMN?" or even "We can do everything ourselves in language X." This article is an attempt to answer some of the most important questions surrounding this term using concrete examples, so that the areas of application that can be deemed "correct" for ESBs can be clarified:

    What exactly is the definition of an ESB? Is it a product or an architecture pattern?
    What are some practical uses for an ESB?
    Do I need an ESB to build an SOA platform?
    Which requirements do I need to satisfy?
    Which criteria can I use to select the ESB that is most suitable for my needs?

  • SOA Maturity Alongside Contract Standardization

    • Service Technology Magazine
    • June 27, 2013

    Introduction: In Search of the Holy Grail of SOA

    In this article, we present and explore the fundamentals of applying the factory approach to modern service-oriented software development in an attempt to marry SOA industrialization with service contracts. As service developers and designers, how can we successfully fulfill factory requirements and achieve the essential characteristic of industrialized SOA while remaining compliant with standards on the service contract level?

    Thinking in terms of contracts has been found to be requisite for granular sourcing strategies that virtualize underlying implementations. Contracts also function as a common language between business units and IT teams, across cloud computing technologies, and for future-proof and agile enterprises in general.

    Let's imagine that today's "pre-industrialized" world has become one in which contracts are been replaced by organizational and technical silos and the best solutions available. In today's SOA landscape, functional components are created for specific applications, often redundantly and lacking organization-wide standardization at the interface level. These components work well in a "silo" landscape in which the "application SOA" architecture is particularly suitable within the context of single applications.

  • Canonizing a Language for Architecture: An SOA Service Category Matrix

    • Service Technology Magazine
    • May 29, 2013

    Services have to meet different architecture and governance requirements whose relevance is determined by how the services are reused. The arrangement and structure significantly affect the analysis and design of the services, which in turn determine the level of granularity. Categorizing services makes it easier to arrange them according to service usage in the procedural landscape, which helps prevent unwanted entanglements.

  • SOA Blueprint: A Toolbox for Architects

    • Service Technology Magazine
    • April 10, 2013

    This article introduces the foundations that need to be established in order to implement functional SOA processes. Rather than presenting specific tools, we will define a broadly applicable SOA blueprint whose individual modules can be topped up with commercial products or increasingly available open
    source offerings.
    A Company Blueprint

    Upon examination of Figure 1, the vision of adaptive enterprise computing is illustrated as a meta-blueprint for the overall company with three differentiated levels:

    Infrastructure Level - This level is formed by databases, storage systems, application servers, and all other IT resources that are required to run IT systems.
    Application System Level - This level houses entire applications, both individual applications and standard software, as well as services relating to SOA, workflow and BPM systems.
    Process Management Level - Functional requirements are manifested in the process design and then implemented at the lower levels.

  • Industrial SOA

    • Service Technology Magazine
    • April 10, 2013

    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. Let's take a closer look
