IBM tools could help make most of SOAs

A new initiative from IBM could help enterprises get more out of service oriented architectures (SOA).

An SOA allows the integration of diverse services and applications to improve the sharing of information across an enterprise.

IBM's Business Integration Adoption Model offers SOA tools, workshops and services. It is designed to increase an SOA's business benefits and establish a roadmap for increasing business value over time.

The model builds on IBM's best practices, investments in middleware, consulting and implementation services, and open standards platforms.

As part of the initiative, IBM is offering a free online assessment that enables businesses to evaluate their level of SOA exploitation and identify high-priority areas. The company is also providing online and classroom-based courses.

To further encourage SOA implementations, IBM is offering a series of Websphere integration architecture workshops.

The SOA Integration Framework is a new services capability built on IBM's Websphere, Rational and Tivoli middleware platforms. It consists of IBM SOA patterns, processes and tools that speed up services delivery of flexible, lower-risk SOAs.

The framework will provide guidance for the creation ofbusiness processes and services, runtime environments, and management frameworks, all targeted at SOA applications and environments.
