SOA Consortium Panel Discussion on BPM & SOA

  WHAT: SOA BPM Roundtable Podcast


SOA Consortium Presents: SOA BPM Roundtable Podcast

The SOA Consortium™, where SOA Means Business™, is presenting a free podcast on SOA and BPM issues. The main objective of the SOA-BPM Relationship Hot Topic Roundtable was to generate a meaningful conversation between Thought Leaders and meeting attendees on the hot topic of the relationship between SOA and BPM. The SOA Consortium’s position is that SOA and BPM are complements. The session was recorded and is now available as an on-demand audio podcast.

Roundtable participants gave five-minute overviews of their thoughts on the following:

bullet Business Discipline: Often, BPM and SOA are discussed solely in respect to their implementation technologies, rather than as business disciplines that enable business process improvement, business performance management and business agility. Thought leaders discussed SOA and BPM from a business discipline perspective, stating commonalities, complements and conflicts.
bullet Methodology: Thought leaders discussed the value or characteristics of a methodology that allows for a seamless transition from BPM to SOA.
bullet Technology: Thought leaders discussed how current SOA and BPM technologies do or don’t work together and how SOA and BPM technologies should work together.
bullet Human Element: Thought leaders discussed the human element of the SOA-BPM divide. Is the divide business versus IT, or is it different?

SOA BPM Thought Leaders were:

bullet Ashwini Ahuja, SDG Corporation
bullet Sooraj Balgobin, The SOA Monitor
bullet Brian Erickson, Hitachi Consulting
bullet Facilitator: Brenda Michelson, SOA Consortium Program Director

After the individual presentations, SOA Consortium meeting attendees joined the discussion with questions and comments.
