ISD Lecture

Towards a Methodology for Service Identification

Tuesday, February 20, 2007
5:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Peter Emmel, SAP

Just about everyone subscribes to SOA as an architectural model; there are stacks of Web service standards and detailed technical specifications. Fine so far. The key question that often begs a satisfactory answer is: "How do I best define and implement services in such a way that I can build scalable, robust SOA-based applications?" This presentation will examine approaches to addressing this issue from a pragmatic standpoint. The presenter will share experiences and key learnings gathered in the Community Advisory Group Methodology comprising thought leaders, partners, customers and top-notch universities to review and to complement existing methodologies for services identification, modeling and implementation. If you are looking to implement serious business applications with a service-oriented architecture, this presentation will provide valuable information on what to watch out for.
