The key to achieving integration, mobility and high performance: Understanding your user requirements and building a flexible, scalable architecture to meet them, says Adam Bari, managing director of IPM, an IT consulting firm. “If you don’t provide that architecture in your enterprise, users will take out their credit cards and buy it from someone else, regardless of security mandates,” he warns.

The most important idea (when it comes to SoC) is thatanyone who is designing a system must make sure to not mix different dimensions, concepts together while designing the system. e.g. process and organization are 2 different concepts. If you start to mix both, blurring the frontier between both, you expose yourself to inconsistencies and high risks of generating problems in a short/mid-term future.

MDM and SOA: Be Warned!

MDM and SOA: Be Warned! | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it

"You will waste your investment in SOA unless you have enterprise information that SOA can exploit."

Emeric Nectoux's curator insight, January 12, 2014 1:23 PM

The relationship between service-oriented architecture (SOA) and master data management (MDM) is very vividly.

An essential principle behind SOA is the reuse of components and the flexibility of using these components to support new functionalities or processes. MDM provides universal components (or services) for consistent data maintenance and distribution. Here the architecture concepts and principles of SOA run into MDM.

SOA is something you do, not something you buy. It's a pattern of architecture that allows you to deal with systems of services and thus provide more agile, expandable business solutions.


While many people associate SOA with technology such as enterprise service buses and other types of so-called "SOA technology," SOA was actually never about technology.
