1 | 19 Send to a Friend IF YOU IGNORED SOA, WHAT WOULD YOU MISS? Answer: The opportunity to participate in a much larger and more dynamic social community. If you’re surprised by this answer, it’s because SOA’s uniqueness goes beyond any new technologies. Traditional “latest and greatest” technologies and architectures—such as mainframes, client-server, and even Web applications—interact point to point with one party. SOA creates multi-party interactions. Communities of more-or-less independent service owners collaborate dynamically to deliver a richer customer experience in response to the immediate context. Why does this matter? Business success now and, increasingly, in the future will result from the ability to participate in these new, more dynamic, federated communities. This social orientation is driving both new SOA technology needs and management changes in how technology is delivered and governed—in ways that may not be immediately apparent.

Deciding what to > reuse (and not to reuse)—and when, how, and by whom— raises issues of ownership, sovereignty, and control. SOA opportunities are about technology, but SOA challenges are about people. So you need a socially oriented architecture—a way to get people to work together—to seize the opportunities of service-oriented architecture.

3 | 19 Send to a Friend SOA CRITICAL SUCCESS FACTORS: AT A GLANCE If you get the technology right and manage it correctly, people will be able to work together. Interestingly, the critical technology for supporting social and service interaction are the same. You must: > Connect interactions freely . The best relationships are built on free, easy interaction. The foundation of a successful service-oriented architecture is seamless interoperability. > Mediate policy actively . Strong, trusting personal and business relationships are based, respectively, on informal or formal contracts with unwritten principles or policies about respecting security and sovereignty and promises to interact in a certain way.
