n Vision for Service Oriented Architecture n Key Directions in SOA and Web Services Standards n What your company can do Open Standards for Semantics and Service Oriented Architecture
Vision for Future Global eBusiness built on a Service Oriented Architecture
The Dawn of a New Era Built on Service Oriented Architecture
Vision of a Service-Oriented Architecture n A place where services are ubiquitous and organically integrated into the way we think and work. n A place where both users and providers of information interact through a common focus on services. n A world where technology is implemented within industry frameworks that operate on a global scale, enabled by open, interoperable standards.
A Common Web Service Framework Is Essential n To provide a sustainable foundation, n That will allow end-user companies to achieve the payback they require, n To invest widely in the service-oriented architecture.
Achieving Sustainable Business Benefits through a Open Standards for Web Services In this post-dot-com era, end user companies are expecting more liquidity and longevity of their assets. To achieve the ROI, Cost Reduction and Service Expansion benefits expected; the widespread deployment of standards-based Web services is essential.
Fundamental Issues that Must Be Addressed A common framework for Web service interactions based on open standards must occur. An agreed set of vocabularies and interactions for specific industries or common functions must be adopted.
Whats the problem? n Industry-specific vocabularies have all too often been developed in a stove-pipe fashion n Industry sectors lack a unified approach to creating XML vocabularies n This creates a barrier to achieving service expansion benefits into cross-sectoral lines of business n Governments are realizing the shortcomings of a departmental approach which hampers attempts to share information between agencies and between different levels of government
Whats the solution? Interoperability at the Business Layer
What are some ways forward? A.UBL OASIS Standard provides a common point of reference against which existing industry business languages can map their vocabularies B.Semantic interoperability and reasoning tools can attempt to map common elements C.Industry sectors should adopt common SOA elements and common SOA methodology D.Industry associations are building their Web Service interaction specifications within OASIS in order to take advantage of the many (24) SOA and WS committees already at OASIS
Cross-Sectoral Approach to SOA Foundation Adoption n Link open standards development processes closer to university and government sponsored research efforts n Active involvement of technology vendors in Proof-of- Concept efforts and open standards development n Industry associations and end-user businesses taking an active role in setting requirements and priorities n Governments collaborating in the process to provide public policy requirements and drive adoption n Open source software developers participating to build implementations based on the open standards for the SME markets and smaller governments
Leading the Adoption of Service Oriented Architecture and Web Services Standards
OASIS drives the development, convergence and adoption of e-business standards. of e-business standards. OASIS Mission
