    SOA and service-orientation have laid the foundation for a variety of emergent service technology innovations such as cloud computing and Big Data, while the original building blocks of SOA and service-orientation (which include BI, BPM and MDM, among others) continue to evolve by embracing fundamental service technologies, concepts and practices. The models, principles and patterns behind SOA and service-orientation can be applied to formalize any of the environments produced by modern service technologies. For example, SOA can establish interoperability between different data sources to consolidate Big Data solutions via schema-based interfaces, even when canonical data models don't exist between the solutions' underlying data sources. For example, consider a US customer whose address and zip code are stored in a CRM system but has its state information stored in the data warehouse. An ontology established via a centralized service contract and implemented by a standardized service can establish the necessary link to provide the customer with a combined view. Similarly, service-orientation design principles can be applied to SaaS services that are deployed as part of cloud-based solutions. This application can help prevent cloud environments from accumulating disparate systems and services that will require subsequent integration in order to overcome the traditional problems associated with silos.While emphasis usually falls on the various methods of applying SOA and service-orientation to service technology products and platforms, it is advantageous to take a step back and discern the ways in which this evolving landscape can reciprocally help achieve the strategic goals of SOA. Never before has there been so much potential to realize service-orientation on.

  • Lançamento de Livro sobre Cloud!

     

    Cloud Computing bookEm Julho de 2013, o best-seller Thomas Earl em conjunto com o professor Doutor Ricardo Puttini lançaram o livro "Cloud Computing: Concepts, Technology & Architecture" (3CTA). O título é resultado de um intenso trabalho de pesquisa e, ainda, fruto da vivencia profissional de ambos os autores, tornando-se uma excelente fonte de informação para profissionais de TI e gerentes que querem aprender e entender cloud computing. O livro fundamenta os conceitos, modelos de implantação, tecnologias e mecanismos para cloud, levando em consideração a independência de plataformas tecnológicas, o que permite que o mesmo seja utilizado como referência por longo tempo.

    Introduction
    Security requirements are usually relatively easy to manage when using local restrictions in conventional closed systems. They become more complex in the distributed system landscape of an SOA. Not limited to only an application or an application domain anymore, security must work across a range of applications and business processes. Numerous security standards have been created in order to realize these comprehensive security requirements. These include WS-SecurityPolicy, WS-Trust, XML Encryption, XKMS, XML Signature, WSFederation, WS-SecureConversation, SAML1, SAML2, and many more. Currently, no product or open source framework can fully support all of these standards. In our experience, incompatibilities arise whenever an SOA product or deployed Web service framework needs to communicate outside of its small ecosystem. Not surprisingly, project managers who are confronted with increasing expenses tend to start looking for viable alternatives. They then usually choose to develop inflexible solutions in-house that can quickly implement risky anti-patterns, such as transferring usernames and passwords within the functional payload. The variety of different standards makes it difficult to formulate a clear understanding of the available security standards and internal product dependencies, in light of the individual restrictions to designing a well-secured system. Our aim is to provide IT experts and SOA architects with tips on how to handle security responsibly, using tried and true best practices as a basis.
