SOA, Yet Another Hype? - Designing Business Processes and Service-Oriented Architecture in the Print Center
Dr. Oskar von Dungern, Enso Publishing GmbH
Is IT really of service to the enterprise? Many people still consider the results produced by expensive IT projects as an insult. How can IT be better aligned with company goals, how can IT be better focused on creating value? How does one prevent that the competitive advantage of an organization falls foul of standardization … and yet still remains within cost limits?
Business process design on the one hand, and the realization of a service-oriented architecture (SOA) in IT on the other, is a promising starting point. What are the main points of a SOA and which experiences help us to implement an SOA project? Practical examples and approaches will be presented, including some from the print center.
