Tier1 Innovation: Building Dynamic Systems with SOA
Tier1 Innovation is a midsize IT professional services firm who is building an SOA practice on top of a successful Siebel implementation practice. Their SOA approach is iterative: they help companies understand and plan SOA while they implement pilot projects that take advantage of their clients’ existing IT infrastructure–an approach that helps them build trust among their clients.
Tier1 offers a remarkably innovative approach to building and implementing SOA. Rather than simply considering Services to be thin veneers over traditional, tightly-coupled systems, Tier1 sees SOA as an overarching approach toward building highly dynamic systems that companies can quickly reconfigure using metadata and events–a flexible approach to SOA ZapThink calls just-in-time integration.
