Service Oriented Architecture (SOA):

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a software architecture where functionality is grouped around business processes and packaged as interoperable services. SOA also describes IT infrastructure which allows different applications to exchange data with one another as they participate in business processes. The aim is a loose coupling of services with operating systems, programming languages and other technologies which underlie applications. SOA separates functions into distinct units, or services, which are made accessible over a network in order that they can be combined and reused in the production of business applications. These services communicate with each other by passing data from one service to another, or by coordinating an activity between two or more services. SOA concepts are often seen as built upon, and evolving from older concepts of distributed computing and modular programming.

Building the Agile Enterprise: With SOA, BPM and MBM by Fred A. Cummins Building the Agile Enterprise: With SOA, BPM and MBM by Fred A. Cummins
ISBN-13:  9780123744456

In the last ten years IT has brought fundamental changes to the way the world works. Not only has it increased the speed of operations and communications, but it has also undermined basic assumptions of traditional business models and increased the number of variables. Today, the survival of major corporations is challenged by a world-wide marketplace, international operations, outsourcing, global communities, a changing workforce, security threats, business continuity, web visibility, and customer expectations. Enterprises must constantly adapt or they will be unable to compete.

Fred Cummins, an EDS Fellow, presents IT as a key enabler of the agile enterprise. He demonstrates how the convergence of key technologies--including SOA, BPM and emerging enterprise and data models--can be harnessed to transform the enterprise. Cummins mines his 25 years experience to provide IT leaders, as well as enterprise architects and management consultants, with the critical information, skills, and insights they need to partner with management and redesign the enterprise for continuous change. No other book puts IT at the center of this transformation, nor integrates these technologies for this purpose.
  

SOA and Web Services Interface Design: Principles, Techniques, and Standards  SOA and Web Services Interface Design: Principles, Techniques, and Standards by James Bean 
ISBN-13: 9780123748911

Today's enterprise is experiencing tremendous economic and market pressures. Growth and more importantly survival require broad-scale interoperability, rapid delivery and agility. SOA can help to enable transformation of today's enterprise from responsive to anticipatory, where new capabilities are assembled from reusable services. Yet a lack of SOA and servicing formalism impedes this business transformation. A well-defined service interface design process and combined with effective techniques and patterns are critical to SOA success. 

In his new book, data architecture guru James Bean teaches you exactly how to design service interfaces and emphasizing the interoperability afforded by Web services. These services are capable of being extended to accommodate changing business needs and promote integration simplicity. 

The book first provides an overview of critical SOA and service design principles of loose coupling, interoperability, extensibility, reuse, and discoverability. Each successive chapter then offers explicit, real-world techniques for ensuring compliance with these principles. Using a focused, tutorial-based approach, the book provides working syntactical examples developed using the Altova XML Spy™ tooling and described by Web services standards such as XML, XML Schemas, WSDL and SOAP. Moreover, these examples and techniques can be used to directly implement interface design procedures, allowing you to immediately generate value from your efforts. There is simply no other volume that provides as deep, concise, and practical sets of design techniques and patterns.

Executing SOA: A Practical Guide for the Service-Oriented Architect (Paperback) by Norbert Bieberstein, Robert G. Laird, Keith Jones, and Tilak Mitra

Executing SOA: A Practical Guide for the Service-Oriented Architect (Paperback) by Norbert Bieberstein, Robert G. Laird, Keith Jones, and Tilak Mitra
ISBN: 0132353741

This book follows up where the authors' best-selling Service-Oriented Architecture Compass left off, showing how to overcome key obstacles to successful SOA implementation and identifying best practices for all facets of execution-technical, organizational, and human. Among the issues it addresses: introducing a services discipline that supports collaboration and information process sharing; integrating services with preexisting technology assets and strategies; choosing the right roles for new tools; shifting culture, governance, and architecture; and bringing greater agility to the entire organizational lifecycle, not just isolated projects.

SOA in Practice: The Art of Distributed Systems Design (Theory in Practice) (Paperback) by Nicolai Josuttis SOA in Practice: The Art of Distributed Systems Design (Theory in Practice) (Paperback) by Nicolai Josuttis
ISBN: 0596529554

This book demonstrates service-oriented architecture (SOA) as a concrete discipline rather than a hopeful collection of cloud charts. Built upon the author's firsthand experience rolling out a SOA at a major corporation, SOA in Practice explains how SOA can simplify the creation and maintenance of large-scale applications. Whether your project involves a large set of Web Services-based components, or connects legacy applications to modern business processes, this book clarifies how -- and whether -- SOA fits your needs. SOA has been a vision for years.

 

SOA Principles of Service Design (Prentice Hall Service-Oriented Computing Series from Thomas Erl) (Hardcover) by Thomas Erl SOA Principles of Service Design (Prentice Hall Service-Oriented Computing Series from Thomas Erl) (Hardcover) by Thomas Erl
ISBN: 0132344823

The key to succeeding with service-oriented architecture (SOA) is in comprehending the meaning and significance of its most fundamental building block: the service.  It is through an understanding of service design that truly "service-oriented" solutions logic can be created in support of achieving the strategic goal associated with SOA and service-oriented computing. Bestselling SOA author Thomas Erl guides you through a comprehensive, insightful, and visually rich exploration of the service-orientation design paradigm, revealing exactly how services should and should not be designed for real-world SOA.
