How can you be successful with service-oriented architecture-especially in a technological landscape that includes Big Data/NoSQL, cloud computing, social networks, the Semantic Web, business process management, and event-driven architecture? This practical book shows architects and managers how it's done. Author Eben Hewitt ( Java SOA Cookbook) illustrates what it means to treat SOA as an organizational strategy, with specific, actionable tips on how to win funding, measure success with metrics, and address challenges precipitated by broad change. You'll also learn how to execute your SOA strategy with patterns and practices in architecture and service implementation. Some strategies work better than others, and timely execution is a key. SOA Strategy and Execution provides clear guidelines for both.
