Connecting SOA with BRMS
To ensure successful SOA implementation, companies should reconsider how they provide decision services
Nov. 9, 2007 08:00 AM
To ensure successful SOA implementation, companies should reconsider how they provide decision services. The unmanageable, black-box approach of wrapping legacy code does not work. BRMS (Business Rules Management System) helps companies meet the SOA promises of reuse and agility with Transparent Decision Services that are truly reusable, modeled by business analysts, maintained by business teams, and managed by IT. BRMS allows externalized decision logic, are modeled and maintained by business teams and analysts, managed by IT, allow automatic auditable capture with extensive reporting, and are easy to repurpose and maintain.
Service-oriented architectures (SOAs) have evolved over the past few years out of the original vision of loosely coupled web services replacing constrained, stovepiped applications throughout enterprise IT. Every major enterprise technology vendor today has developed its own SOA strategy, supported by innumerable mid-size companies and start-ups offering specific SOA aspects or entire solutions. This explosive growth in SOA technology is in response to a global demand--IDC estimates that spending on SOA services alone will grow from $8.6 billion to more than $33 billion by 2010.
