Managing Change Needed for Service-Oriented Architectures and Cloud Computing - Webinar By EITAGlobal Shared by JamesRichard
Incremental SOA Analysis uses three tools that address change issues:
These tools are used in Incremental SOA Analysis to engage people in such a way that they can come to their own resolution on the concepts that are causing human change issues. There are five principles explained in this session that provide the basis for Incremental SOA Analysis:
For most organizations, a Service-Oriented/Cloud Computing Architecture will be ever changing because it will need to respond to the changing nature of business and technology. The primary goal of Incremental SOA Analysis is to eventually position your organization so that it can respond quickly to those changes. It will provide you with a loosely coupled architecture that should improve your organization’s ability to change. A secondary goal is to leave you with functioning architecture whenever you stop. Budgets and other demands often derail the best-laid development plans. With this type of analysis, you should be able to restart your development at some later time if work is suspended for some reason. Even though this session addresses a technical topic, it is presented in such a way that this session is also suitable for nontechnical members of your team.
Why should you attend: You may have noticed statements of problems with service-oriented architecture (SOA) projects. For example, one published statement was that 50% of SOA projects are a complete failure. Another statement characterized what is described as rage over the changes being instituted as part of the SOA projects. This is pretty dismal stuff. Is it reality? We need to put these statements in perspective. This session describes how SOA and Cloud Computing projects are really no different than other IT projects in that larger projects tend to fail and that many change issues are not identified early in the project can scuttle those projects.
This session focuses on the people involved in the change, including leadership, users, and those working on the project. People are understandably concerned about the future of their jobs and about learning new tools and technologies. An organization must deal with managing the human aspect of the change that occurs with the adoption of a Service-Oriented Architecture with Cloud Computing. Nevertheless, there is always the chance that a given SOA/Cloud Computing project could fail. To understand one way to minimize this chance, Incremental SOA Analysis is introduced. The purpose of this analysis is to improve the project selection process in a way that it also improves the chance of success for that project. This analysis takes into account both project size and human change issues. Even though this session addresses a technical topic, it is presented in such a way that this session is also suitable for nontechnical members of your team.
