It is becoming a reality that most of the software solutions are delivered and consumed as services. Service is a function that is well-defined, self-contained, and does not depend on the context or the state of other services.
Service-oriented architecture allows us to manage the usage (delivery, data access, transformation, acquisition, consumption etc) in terms of, and in sets of, well defined inter-related services. Through the use of an Enterprise Service Bus, enterprises can now quickly assemble applications from any of the services which are “plugged” into the bus to create new information-based applications.
This will have big implications for how we manage the software life cycle—right from specification of requirements as services to implementation and management.
As a part of our solution offering in this area, we focus on helping our client help move to Service-Oriented-Architecture (SOA) to become an on demand enterprise. At present, we provide solution in the following dimensions:
• Infrastructure layout
• Architecture layout
• Managing product development life cycle in SOA
• Implementing Pilot projects
• Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)
