  • IT Service—Service Oriented Architecture

    In this post, I discuss service oriented architecture (SOA). It is a brilliant IT notion. Brilliant, really? Yes, let me explain.

    SOA is amazing. It is beautiful in its simplicity and usefulness. The idea is to create a software entity that has self-describing inputs and useful outputs that can be accessed either publically or privately, as appropriate, in such a way that the underlying complexity of the root systems and software is shielded from the invoker of the service. With this approach, all kinds of existing data and programmatic functionality can be easily accessed from environments that would otherwise be foreign to the native environment of the data or program.

These are just representative examples and there are many other instances of managed services in the marketplace. The “someone else” is an IT services company that leverages labor and perhaps hardware and software to perform a collection of IT services.

By service implementations, I mean instances like IT service management, manager services, service oriented architectures, infrastructure as a service, platform as a service, software as a service and business process as a service. This is a list of the important kinds of IT services that will be my focus.
