3 SOA Implementation Tips

Apr 27, 20071 min

Three tips for navigating the sea of service-oriented architecture standards.

1. Use your early SOA efforts to help decide which standards are most important to your business goals.

2. Ask for examples of successful SOA standards deployment stories. Just because standards have been out for a year doesn’t necessarily mean they’re ready for full-scale deployment.

3. If you’re using middleware to provide a temporary integration fix because of the lack of a suitable standard, make sure not to overcommit to one vendor or product.
