Our businesses today operate in a complex environment that is changing at a tremendous pace. The factors driving this complexity and pace include everything from regulatory compliance,

John Samuel: What if your car could communicate with you?
“Well I don’t mean actually speak to you—that would be freaky. Imagine you’re driving along and the car starts speaking—that would put me off from driving slightly! So what do I mean when I say ‘communicate with you’? You might be surprised to know that cars have a huge amount of data within them, but they do. Even if your car is 10 years old it probably has a fair amount of data. But when a car leaves the production plant the manufacturer no longer has access to this onboard data. If the car could communicate, allowing the manufacturer to access its data, then maybe it could preempt part failures”.
Asit Dan: Ensuring Service Reuse with SOA Governance
The two primary objectives in delivering any service-oriented architecture (SOA) based solution are “service orientation” in aligning IT functions with business capabilities being enabled, and “service reuse” for sharing of IT functions and resources. As highlighted in previous blog entries, SOA governance plays a key role in making sure that the right decisions are made during the implementation of a SOA solution encompassing both the architecture and service life-cycle, to ensure that both of these objectives are achieved. Here, we will have a closer look at the key barriers in service reuse, and how these can be addressed through proper SOA governance.
