SOA Platforms - Evolving to Meet Stringent Market Realities
Many organizations rely upon SOA platforms that lag with earlier generations of centralized hub-and-spoke or integration-bus oriented architectures. Such organizations are subsequently unable to leverage all the compute and storage power available at the end-points of modern IT networks. With this inability, organizations are unable to address evolving consumer SOA requirements, including simplicity, risk mitigation and predictability. This white paper explores the evolution of SOA platforms, from first generation SOA infrastructures to more complex architectures, such as the enterprise service grid. Explore the development of and benefits associated with the first generation SOA. Discover how several separations arose leading to the first generation of SOA architectures. Examine the enterprise service grid as a second-generation SOA platform that addresses modern-day business requirements efficiently, reliably and affordably.
