Getting rapid results with SOA
In this paper, Steve Craggs of Lustratus Research discusses a new approach to delivering pragmatic, SOA-based value, combining some of the best features of SOA with event-driven principles – message-driven SOA. Message-driven SOA has its roots in the ongoing requirement many companies have to improve integration across different business disciplines and systems, but by bringing in aspects of SOA it offers an easier and more cost-effective response to this need while providing additional SOA benefits such as faster time to market and improved business visibility of operations. At the same time, message-driven SOA offers a tactical response to immediate needs that also remains consistent with the longer-term strategic goals of full SOA adoption.
