Service Oriented Architecture White Papers

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) expresses a perspective of software architecture that defines the use of loosely coupled software services to support the requirements of the business processes and software users. In an SOA environment, resources on a network are made available as independent services that can be accessed without knowledge of their underlying platform implementation.

Configuration Management is at the heart of the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and forms the foundation for Business Service Management (BSM). In fact, it is safe to say that neither the ITIL IT Service Management (ITSM) processes nor the BSM functions that leverage ITSM can be efficiently carried out without accurate configuration and dependency information.

Many businesses struggle to guarantee application and data availability for Windows applications. They may protect the application from one type of outage (like a disk failure) while ignoring other risks. Or they can end up deploying multiple point solutions to handle different aspects of availability, increasing overall cost and complexity.

Businesses over the past ten years have used email archiving solutions in order to meet record retention compliance, facilitate electronic discovery, and control message-related storage costs. Despite these benefits, many organizations still have not adopted an archiving solution and still simply enforce mailbox quotas or message deletion policies as the best way to manage messaging environments.

IT used to be so simple. Companies owned their own technology equipment and purchased enterprise licenses for many of the applications anybody in the organization might care to use. But then the cloud emerged, and mobile, and social media, and IoT; the world of IT has never been the same. Today's businesses are software-driven enterprises with technology capability distributed throughout the company, utilizing countless third-party cloud-based applications. This new organization requires an cultural shift in the IT organization. Read this whitepaper to learn: -How businesses can reorganize themselves into lightweight, agile, modular businesses able to respond to innovations in SaaS, mobile, and analytics -How to build a technological architecture that can accommodate new technology yet still extract value from on-premises systems -The advantages of an API-led connected architecture vs. old SOA approaches

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has conducted extensive research investigating the integration and management challenges created by the convergence of on-premise and public Cloud hosted applications. Research conducted in mid-2012 uncovered some compelling statistics about the role of Cloud integration in today's companies: Nearly 50% of the companies surveyed have already deployed tiered transactions spanning public Cloud and on-premise computing environments (one form of "hybrid Cloud") Approximately 35% have integrated (or are in the process of integrating) multiple Software as a Service (SaaS) applications. As one IT professional put it, "Everything is connected to everything." Because of this fact, any discussionof public Cloud as a standalone technology is outmoded. Few modern on-premise applications exist as"silos," and the same is true of Cloud-delivered applications.

In today's business environment, organizations of all sizes are struggling to maintain the advanced IT capabilities they need to be competitive while reining in cost and complexity. Shifting to off-premise hosted models, such as software-as-a-service (SaaS) and business process outsourcing, is a common activity undertaken to manage costs. One of the main challenges businesses face in adopting cloud and SaaS delivery models is the task of synchronizing data and integrating the multitude of systems already in datacenters with new cloud-based applications, not to mention within the cloud itself. Traditionally, this required organizations to leverage existing tools as well as custom development. This white paper looks at how two enterprises encountered problems with cloud integration and adopted IBM WebSphere Cast Iron to solve their immediate problems and extend use more broadly across their organizations.
