Service-Oriented Integration: Making the Right Choices to Support Next-Generation Integration

2:30 p.m.


Applications are increasingly being developed "built-to-integrate," providing the ability to easily expose key functionality through commonly defined interfaces. Gartner calls this concept SODA, or Service-Oriented Development of Applications, fitting into its overall Service-Oriented Architecture landscape. When applied to the ever-present integration challenge, SODA represents a transition to service-oriented integration.

In this presentation, Chappell will examine the leading choices for supporting service-oriented integration: enterprise service buses (ESBs), integration brokers, and application suite platforms.

We will learn how making the right architectural decisions is absolutely vital to ensuring success with service-oriented integration projects - whether applications were built to integrate or not. Choices at all levels - from application interface style to overall system architecture - can seriously affect the long-term value derived from integration projects.The session will review application integration approaches being used today, and discuss how they dramatically affect architectural directions that should be carefully examined before embarking on an integration strategy.

Dave will draw on the well of professional expertise familiar to all who have read his many articles in Web Services Journal and XML-Journal including, in 2003 alone:
