ZapThink’s Path to Service-Oriented Architecture Implementation

Companies today are struggling with the best way to implement IT infrastructures that enable business agility. Service-oriented architectures based on Web Services provide cost-effective approaches to achieving companies’ agility goals. ZapThink’s Roadmap to SOA adoption is a first-of-its-kind full-color, 18×24″ poster that provides companies of all sizes and industries an at-a-glance view at how to approach implementing Service-oriented architectures in a way that provides return-on-investment (ROI) at each step along the path toward agile IT infrastructures.

Included on this easy-to-read poster are the steps and phases by which companies can move from today’s brittle infrastructures to loosely-coupled, coarse-grained, asynchronous SOAs. The poster covers concepts in point-to-point Web Services implementations for integration, securing, managing, and adding process layers to these services, implementing registries and management for loose coupling, moving to asynchronous invocations for greater reliability, and concepts in virtualization, grid computing, and more. The poster shows the big picture for SOA adoption and includes the details on how to actually go about implementing SOAs in a logical progression of steps, each resulting in significant ROI.

Professionally designed with corporate architecture decision makers, technical implementers, and product vendors in mind, the Zapthink Roadmap to SOA Adoption promises to be displayed by both technical and business people.
