SOAInstitute.org to Focus on APIs

As businesses turn digital and ecosystems become increasingly open, the nature of integration is changing. SOA helped us connect IT transactions and systems within a controlled environment. APIs will help us turn legacy into advantage, exposing assets to be consumed by innovators outside your own team. The transformative power of APIs will last twice as long and have many times the impact of the web. Whether you goal is to drive innovation, become a mobile business, or navigate a hybrid cloud, APIs are part and parcel of your strategy.

In principle, the acronym API stands for Application Programming Interfaces, but the notion of what API means has evolved significantly. APIs today are quite different from the application programming interfaces of old, and the transition from SOA to API centric systems is a very natural one. Enterprises that embark on this journey will continue to leverage the engineering practices embraced by SOA, but will extend their ecosystem in new ways through APIs. Experiencing the power of APIs involves much more than simply data monetization. The power of APIs can be successfully applied to business challenges ranging from changing business models to embracing a world of devices and sensors.

Transforming Customer Experience

The Convergence of Social, Mobile and Business Process Management To stay ahead in todays rapidly changing business environment, organizations need agile business processes that allow them to adapt quickly to evolving markets, customer needs, policies, regulations, and business models. The convergence of a trio of technologies and business practices - social computing, mobile computing and business process management (BPM) – is opening up interesting avenues for business.

Next Generation Service Integration Platform

Proliferation of mobile devices, data explosion, and cloud enablement has caused a dramatic shift in IT. Organizations need to rethink their application infrastructures to accommodate increased processing speeds, heightened security and availability concerns for their applications, all while meeting lower ed total cost of ownership. Traditional infrastructures may not be sufficient to accommodate the diversity and complexity of integrations in this new era. Oracle SOA Suite on Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud & Oracle Exadata Database Machine is fine - tuned all the way from the hardware to the application layer, specifically for SOA to deliver on performance, business agility, lowered total cost of ownership and faster time to market, to become the next generation IT platform. Together these solutions provide complete and best - of - breed solutions for running and integrating high performance, mission critical applications.

Avoiding the Accidental SOA Cloud Architecture

Prior to the hybrid cloud, IT determined how an enterprise infrastructure grew. With the introduction of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), lines of business, such as marketing, sales and logistics, can expand the enterprise infrastructure without involving IT by directly purchasing SaaS. Beware of the “accidental SOA cloud architecture.”

BPM, SOA, and Web 2.0: Business Transformation or Train Wreck?

The challenges faced by today’s government agencies and commercial operations are many and varied—and to stay afloat, these organizations must not only promote change from within, but they must also be agile enough to quickly adapt to evolving markets, policies, regulations, and business models. Fortunately for them, the convergence of a trio of technologies and business practices—business process management (BPM), service-oriented architecture (SOA), and Web 2.0—is providing a solution.

Government Best Practices and Customer Success with BPM

Governments and companies worldwide have for generations sought to better manage the processes that are key to their constituencies and business by managing them to improve efficiency, insight into their impact, and how to use them to achieve greater flexibility. Over the years the introduction of new technology provides new ways to achieve these benefits yet each new technology also imposes a barrier in the path of success. In addition, change management and human and organizational change is a naturally resistant force that can stand in the way of success.
