"This book is a major improvement in the field. It gives a clear view and all the key points on how to really face a SOA deployment in today's organizations."

–Mario Moreno, IT Architect Leader, Generali France

"Service-Oriented Architecture enables organizations to be agile and flexible enough to adopt new business strategies and produce new services to overcome the challenges created by business dynamism today. CIOs have to consider SOA as a foundation of their Enterprise Applications Architecture primarily because it demonstrates that IT aligns to business processes and also because it positions IT as a service enabler and maximizes previous investments on business applications.

To understand and profit from SOA, this book provides CIOs with the necessary concepts and knowledge needed to understand and adapt it into their IT organizations."

–Sabri Hamed Al-Azazi, CIO of Dubai Holding, Sabri

"I am extremely impressed by the depth and scale of this book! The title is perfect–when you know where you want to go, you need a compass to guide you there! After good IT strategy leads you to SOA, this book is the perfect vehicle that will drive you from dream to reality. We in DSK Bank will use it as our SOA bible in the ongoing project."

–Miro Vichev, CIO, DSK Bank, Bulgaria, member of OTP Group

"Service-Oriented Architecture offers a pathway to networking of intra- and inter-corporate business systems. The standards have the potential to create far more flexible and resilient business information systems than have been possible in the past. This book is a must-read for those who care about the future of business IT."

–Elizabeth Hackenson, CIO, MCI

"Service-Oriented Architecture is key to help customers become on demand businesses–a business that can quickly respond to competitive threats and be first to take advantage of marketplace opportunities. SOA Compass is a must-read for those individuals looking to bridge the gap between IT and business in order to help their enterprises become more flexible and responsive."

–Michael Liebow, Vice President, Web Services and Service-Oriented Architecture, IBM Business Consulting Services

"This book is a welcome addition to SOA literature. It articulates the business case and provides practical proven real-world advice, guidance, tips, and techniques for organizations to make the evolution from simple point-to-point web services to true SOA by addressing such topics as planning, organization, analysis and design, security, and systems management."

–Denis O'Sullivan, Fireman's Fund Enterprise Architect

Maximize the business value and flexibility of your SOA deployment

In this book, IBM Enterprise Integration Team experts present a start-to-finish guide to planning, implementing, and managing Service-Oriented Architecture. Drawing on their extensive experience helping enterprise customers migrate to SOA, the authors share hard-earned lessons and best practices for architects, project managers, and software development leaders alike.

Well-written and practical, Service-Oriented Architecture Compass offers the perfect blend of principles and "how-to" guidance for transitioning your infrastructure to SOA. The authors clearly explain what SOA is, the opportunities it offers, and how it differs from earlier approaches. Using detailed examples from IBM consulting engagements, they show how to deploy SOA solutions that tightly integrate with your processes and operations, delivering maximum flexibility and value. With detailed coverage of topics ranging from policy-based management to workflow implementation, no other SOA book offers comparable value to workingIT professionals.

Coverage includes

SOA from both a business and technical standpoint–and how to make the business case

Planning your SOA project: best practices and pitfalls to avoid

SOA analysis and design for superior flexibility and value

Securing and managing your SOA environment

Using SOA to simplify enterprise application integration

This new book from IBM Press released in October 2005 provides valuable inputs for someone looking for an authentic source to obtain a roadmap on SOA. Having said that, the 11 chapters present only a high level view of the topics. For instance, it clarifies that SOA is Platform, Protocol and Programming language independent. These and other aspects relating to backward and forward compatibility, the Enterprise Service Bus, the On Demand Operating Environment (ODOE) are all compressed into one chapter, Chapter-3 titled "Architecture Elements". Chapter-4 presents the SOA Adoption Roadmap with a brief set of tips for success which make interesting reading. Chapter-4 also takes a look at existing roles in IS projects and redefines some of them and introduces new ones. The UDDI Designer, UDDI Administrator and the Services Governor are new roles that I found interesting. Chapter-5 deals with Analysis and Design of Service layers through abstraction and how to categorize them. Chapter-6 carries the interesting analysis and design discussion forward and states that finding the correct asset to solve the enterprise architechture problem is difficult. The chapter discusses 2 scenarios with pros and cons and consequences of each approach with diagrams that are good.

I found these 4 chapters (3-6) of the 11 the highlights of the book. I am looking forward to delving deeper into SOA architecture from other books. This book provided a good foundation for understanding SOA.

I felt the book was very vague and redundant. However' I've not read another SOA book so perhaps they are all the same. The editing and such seemed good as well. I bought this book to pass IBM exam 664. While I did pass the exam, I think all you need for this objective are the VW003/005 PDF files from IBM, not this book. THE PDFs are far shorter in length and get right to the points you need to pass the exam, without the added fluff that this book has.

Overall, decent book if you know nothing of the subject, but a bit too much padding for IBM664/669

The whole subject of SOA, or Service Oriented Architecture, is getting to be ever-more mainstream in IT organizations. Being able to build systems using a web services architecture presents some very real advantages, but how do you know where to begin? From an architecture and structure viewpoint, this book does a pretty good job... Service-Oriented Architecture Compass: Business Value, Planning, and Enterprise Roadmap by Norbert Bieberstein, Sanjay Bose, Marc Fiammante, Keith Jones, and Rawn Shah.

Contents: Introducing SOA; Explaining the Business Value of SOA; Architecture Elements; SOA Project Planning Aspects; Aspects of Analysis and Design; Enterprise Solution Assets; Determining Non-Functional Requirements; Securing the SOA Environment; Managing the SOA Environment; Case Studies in SOA Deployment; Navigating Forward; Glossary; Index

Given the right audience, this has a lot of valuable information. If you're a developer looking for information on how to code a web service, then you'll likely be highly disappointed. This book is *not* a coding tutorial, nor does it profess to be. It really serves as a guide on how an SOA environment can be built and leveraged within an organization. I would see this as being a great book for an application architect trying to position an organization's overall application strategy. For a person like that, all the important concepts are to be found here. There's the "why"... why be concerned with SOA? There's the "who"... Who in your organization plays a part in designing and building these services to be used by the business? And of course, there's a lot of "what"... What are the parts that make up an SOA implementation, and what does an organization have to take into account to make it all work together? It's easy enough to build a web service to look up a name or something, and to think you're now leveraging SOA. The reality is much deeper and more fundamental than just rolling out a web service here and there... An additional feature of the book that makes it unique is that it references online developerWorks articles on the IBM web site in order to add more information to the mix. Oh, and I probably should mention that since it's an IBM Press book, there's a heavy slant towards IBM examples and software. But overall, the core information is vendor-neutral, and it's material you'll need to understand in order to make an SOA implementation a success.

Don't think you'll sit down, read the book in a couple of hours, and then be all-knowing when it comes to SOA. The material takes time to read and understand. But once you make it all the way through, you should be well-grounded in the fundamentals behind it all.

Service Oriented Architecture is one of these concepts that has come along and gripped a substantial part of the business and technical imagination. So companies like IBM are attempting to flesh out what this could mean for their customers.

From the text, it can be considered that SOA is the idea of Web Services, taken to a higher level. The book describes SOA as "a set of flexible services and processes that a business wants to expose to its customers, partners, or internally". Each of these services might well be implemented as a Web Service. SOA is more about the framework that aggregates these Web Services in a simple, modular manner.

Plus, note the word "processes". This can include activities or procedures that might not be expressed, or easily expressible if at all, as Web Services. Another dimension in which SOA differs from a Web Service.

How will SOA turn out in practice? The book's explanation is impressive, but at its level of discussion, there is a certain inevitable amount of jargon and handwaving. The lower level idea of Web Services seems now to be reasonably valid and successful. It will take more time with SOA to see what happens.

The book also has a tangential and useful feature. Each chapter ends with links to papers that IBM makes publicly available at its developerWorks website. A rich resource for you to mine. The technical calibre of those papers tends to be quite high, and they develop further the various ideas in the chapters. If this book puts you into the habit of regularly perusing developerWorks, that in itself is a good thing.

By the way, as a minor note, you can tell that SOA is still very new. See in the title of this book the dash between Service and Oriented? This is like when the Web first burst into the general scene. It was then often written as World-Wide Web. The latter notation makes sense, except that nobody writes that way anymore.
