service oriented architecture
soa can be looked at in terms of three core areas:
* a management perspective where it architects deal with it process governance, soa processes, business and it convergence.
* an architectural framework whereby business requirements are identified and help to define architectural governance and their specifications.
* a deployment framework whereby operational infrastructures, service management, standards and policies are designed and mapped.
these three main concepts provide all the necessary steps towards a successful implementation giving architects a thread from the design / modeling stages down to the daily execution
and activity monitoring.
all these elements combined provide the best practice into achieving total business agility. policies can therefore be defined whilst taking into account compliance, standards and policies to make the implementation across into it simple, successful and highly cost effective.
