Service-Oriented Architecture: A Planning and Implementation Guide for Business and Technology

Praise for Service-Oriented Architecture "This book provides a superb overview of the SOA topic. Marks and Bell provide practical guidance across the entire SOA life cycle-from business imperatives and motivations to the post-deployment business and technical metrics to consider.

A Book to Help Managers and Technologists Talk About SOA

Before discussing the substance of "Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA): A Planning and Implementation Guide for Business and Technology", its worth noting that the style of the book makes the underlying content accessible to both technologists and managers alike. The writing style is clear, compact, and full of visual aids and the entire book respects the reader's time. As for substance, the strongest feature of the book is the discussion of SOA within a business context. Architects who read the book will be better able to work with their managers to set an effective SOA strategy, augment their technology governance for SOA, and address common management fears about investing in a SOA strategy. Managers that read the book will be able to develop a practical vision of the potential benefits of SOA for their business, the likely technical and organization challenges that will be encountered, and some practical steps that can be taken to reduce the risk of SOA implementation. If your company has some web service activity but lacks an overall SOA strategy and governance model, I highly recommend the book. Michael Sick, Enterprise Architect, Serene Software

Excellent !!

In order to complete any jigsaw puzzle, you normally need to refer to the picture on the box. This book provides the SOA picture with amazing common-sense clarity (thereby facilitating the puzzle). I currently run Operational Risk and SOX Technology Development for a top-tier Investment Bank in New York - this book contains invaluable information, tips and techniques - I thoroughly recommend it. Hearty Congratulations to the authors and Thank You for a very decent read!!

Excellent hands on service development model solutions for SOA!

Excellent hands on service development model solutions for SOA! It looks like a lifetime experience of the authors that produced tangible deliverables in the SOA space. If you are an architect, developer, or a manager, you should get this book and rely on it when you're doing your work. I'd recommend the book to all business and development communities. A must have!

Creative and Very Helpful

Creative and very helpful. This book is unbelievably smart and innovative. My company has been struggling with service oriented governance and Web services design for a couple of years by now. This book is a bible to me. I found many answers to my questions, such as: 1. What is the service life-cycle, and how can my company manage services 2. How can my team discover, analyze, design and develop efficient Web services 3. How can our management plan projects that are based on services 4. Also, how can we efficiently integrate services My only issue with this book is that it should be expanded to volume 2, since SOA has so many practices. This is the first SOA book that provides hands on solutions, especially in planning and service design and integration.
