SOA4BT – from Business Services to Realization

Nikhil Kumar, President, ApTSi (Applied Technology Solutions, Inc.); and Sundar Ramanthan, Manager - IT Advisory, EY

Legacy SOA development has typically been constrained to the development of technology centric solutions, and has been unable to engage the business and provide the inherent value of SOA – the alignment of the organization on a service-based model in both business and technical terms.  However, the evolution of the SOA ecosystem, with architectural expressions such as the Cloud and API driven architectures, as well as the need for business capabilities to be realized in terms of services is propelling a change to view business in a service context.

This presentation focuses on the holistic development of a SOA in the context of Business.  It provides a review of the three pillars – the Strategic Pillar, the Operational Pillar and the Operating Model Pillar.  It then provides an understanding of KPIs and the mapping of service success to organizational KPIs and scorecards.  It presents a model for mapping the business SOA to the technical SOA RA and how business functions and services are realized through technical business process and service implementations.
