I was referred to this interesting article about SOA and Data Quality by Sid Fran on b-eye-network today. It is an excellent and to the point introduction to SOA . It’s headlines:
- Features, benefits and promises
- Success stories
- Successfully Transitioning to a Service-Oriented Architecture
- SOA and Data Governance
- Succeeding with SOA
In this last point he speaks right to my heart when he ends the article with:
To implement a successful SOA, it is important that a company follows a basic tenet – the underlying shared data must be of high quality, highly available, and consistent across the services.
Need I say more?
