You have been handed the keys and a blank slate to build a new services-based architecture. Are you up for the task? Do you have the knowledge, judgment, and combination of hard and soft skills needed to plan, design, and execute a significant SOA project?
Implementing a strong and flexible SOA can be a difficult challenge for an experienced architect, let alone someone with less experience. Many complex architecture projects end in failure, or are scaled back so that something can be achieved in a reasonable amount of time.
In this session Jeff explores the key characteristics of successful SOA projects. He covers some of the patterns, and anti-patterns, tool sets, and strategies that he himself learned the hard way - through his own trial and error experiences as an architect. Last, he provides a strategy and blueprint for achieving a high likelihood of success in your SOA project.
Key session topics include:
- How to apply SOA patterns to different classes of problems;
- The common failures of a SOA project and how to prevent them;
- Architectural strategies that offer the best chance of achieving project success;
- And more.
Why this session delivers specific time-saving/cost-cutting expertise: Architects and development teams embarking on an SOA strategy will find this session especially beneficial, as this kind of expert advice is required in order to avoid making the same mistakes that have been made many times in the past. This type of advice can save you months of lost design and development time, and hundreds of thousands of dollars in poorly conceived and executed projects.
