2 Copyright © 2003 iWay Software 2 Agenda  Overview of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)  SOA and Peoplesoft  Using iWay Adaptive Framework for SOA with Peoplesoft

4 Copyright © 2003 iWay Software 4 Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)  Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is a collection of services on a network that communicate with one another. The services are loosely coupled (meaning that an application doesn't have to know the technical details of another application in order to talk to it), have well-defined, platform-independent interfaces, and are reusable.  Gartner estimates that by 2008, more than 60 percent of enterprises will use SOA as a "guiding principle" when creating mission-critical applications and processes. Definition from CIO Magazine, author TODD DATZ, Jan 2004

6 Copyright © 2003 iWay Software 6 Why consider SOA?  Cheaper - Reduce costs of integration solution  Easier - Simplify integration and abstract the underlying complexity  Smarter - Eliminate redundancy  Quicker - Improve time-to-market  Flexible - Provide agility  Leads to providing improved or new integration with…  Internal and external organizations…  From existing IT assets such as Peoplesoft  …Overall improves value and ROI

7 Copyright © 2003 iWay Software 7 Ways to implement SOA  Web Services  SOAP and WSDL  Fine-grained services  Coarse-grained services  Enterprise Service Bus  Messaging infrastructure  Adaptive Framework  Technology-independent services provided over one or many integration channels: Internet, ESBs, Brokers, etc…

9 Copyright © 2003 iWay Software 9 Ways to integrate with PeopleSoft  The ways to integrate with Peoplesoft is continuously “evolving”  7.x Message Agent - synchronous API into application  8.1x Component Interface (CI) - synchronous API into application Application Messaging - asynch I/O (includes Gateway) Business Interlinks - synchronous out of PS to external app (decremented)  8.4x Component Interface still there Integration Broker (re-branded Application Messaging) asynch & synchronous I/O Data transform via xslt Can pass SOAP to Component Interface (SOAP to CI) - 8.42+ iWay’s SOA solutions simplify integration with Peoplesoft and protect you against future changes
