Services-oriented architecture lets companies change processes to support business
IBM Global Services last week unveiled a road map, called Service Oriented Modeling and Architecture, designed to let companies build services-oriented architectures based on Web services.
The road map helps companies identify the systems that support their different business processes, and then determine which of those need to be modified to support upcoming changes in business operations. The tight link between technology and processes makes it easier for companies to prioritize the work done by IT departments, says Jim Hilt, manager of services-oriented architecture strategies for IBM Global Services.
Meanwhile, BEA Systems Inc. revealed last week that it will expand its consulting services to cover all stages of adopting a services-oriented architecture, including IT-systems assessment, development of a plan for moving to such an architecture, IT staff training, and implementation of related technology. BEA also unveiled a tool that measures the impact of a services-oriented architecture on a company's long-term strategy and near-term initiatives.
