O intuito dessa coluna é mencionar considerações e impressões sobre muito do que se é falado sobre SOA em sitios, blogs e instituições de ensino. O intuito dessa coluna não é se autodenominar: - “O dentetor da verdade sobre SOA”, mas apenas expor as considerações que temos chegado mediante a alguns cases e estudos.
A história a seguir resume as impressões do graduando em Analise de Desenvolvimento de Sistemas, Éder Costa Albano, ao apresentar suas impressões sobre SOA no tangível a prós, contras, dentre outras coisas.
Knowledge-driven processes are typically unpredictable in their execution. Experts working on them decide what’s the next best action to take. This is in contrast to traditional BPM, in which all possible paths of a process are predetermined and modeled into the process. Case management is a way to control and implement these unstructured processes. With the poster below we'd like to bring some of the key aspects of Adaptive Case Management (ACM) on one page.

Industrial SOA is a 13-part article series focused on service orientation, written collaboratively by a group of recognized experts and community leaders in service oriented architecture. Send us your feedback @twitter/soacommunity #industrialSOA. "SOA and service-orientation have laid the foundation for a variety of emergent service technology innovations such as cloud computing and big data, while the original building blocks of SOA and service-orientation continue to evolve by embracing fundamental service technologies, concepts and practices." All articles have been published at the Service Technology Magazine and the Oracle Technology Network.
Cloud Computing Hype
Why is everyone talking about cloud computing? Drawn-out, expensive IT projects that are planned andimplemented without any benefits for the business stakeholders are commonplace. In contrast, cloud computing offers business users the chance to immediately implement services with usage-based billing that are tailored to their requirements, often without the need to consult with the ITdepartment. However, aspects like security, architecture, availability, and standards are often not evaluated. Cloud consumers find themselves at the mercy of the cloud provider. Scenarios that require changing cloud providersafter a cloud provider goes bankrupt, and the associated moving of data and/or applications, have not yet been sufficiently tested. Business continuity should play a key role from the start of a cloud evaluation process. One of the greatest challenges here is the integration of existing data and systems into the cloud solution. Without integration spanning between clouds and on-premise systems, processes can only be executed inisolation, leading to cloud-specific silos of isolated solutions. Important information for users is not available across processes and systems. Problems that would have occurred in the company’s internal IT are nowshifted to the cloud provider. To prevent “legacy clouds” or solutions that are hard to maintain, it is important to manage the entire architecture proactively and, in particular, the integration into the cloud. Even if cloudproviders want us to believe otherwise, not every aspect of IT can be outsourced to cloud solutions! Read the paper here.
Business Process Management is a management discipline that thrives to improve process performance. If done right, BPM leads to appealing, user-friendly processes that provide information about productivity, that measure performance and that illustrate the potential for improvement while indicating the exact location in the overall process that potentially benefits from one of various process optimization strategies.
To deal with the complexity of modeling a company’s business processes, business analysts proceed hierarchically and begin by describing a value chain (process level 0) through several levels of processes, until they reach a level on which they depict a detailed description of the activities of process participants. Figure 1 gives an overview of BPM with a figure for each modeling technology and the interaction with SOA services.
We see that Business Process Management and SOA go hand in hand: SOA enables BPM.. Read the paper here
Oracle released their cloud adapter for salesforce.com (SFDC) so I thought I would talk a little about why you might want it. I had previously integrated with SFDC using BPEL and the SFDC web interface, so in this post I will explore why the adapter might be a better approach.
