Editorial Reviews

"In this book the authors track the trends, create new rules based on new realities, and establish new market models. With virtual service oriented grids, the sky is the limit," writes Wei-jen Lee, University of Texas - Arlington professor, about The Business Value of Virtual Service Oriented Grids.

The application of service oriented architecture (SOA) for business will interest decision makers looking for the latest advances in technologies and ideas on how to utilize those advances to keep up in a global economy.

The Business Value of Virtual Service Oriented Grids provides a framework that describes how the convergence of three well-known technologies is defining a new information technology model that will fundamentally change the way we do business. The first step, say the authors, is the development of new applications for the consumer market. However, even bigger is the development of new applications in a federated fashion using services modules called servicelets. These federated or composite applications can be built in a fraction of the time it takes to develop traditional applications. This new environment will lower the bar for applications development, opening opportunities for thousands of smaller players worldwide.

The speed-up in application development and integration will accelerate the deployment of IT capabilities, which in turn will have a consequential effect on the organization's business agility. Corporate decision makers will enjoy the ability to pick and choose among capital and operations expenses to suit their organization's business goals as the book clearly explains the interplay between technology, architectural considerations, and standards with illustrative examples.

Finally, it tells you how your organization can benefit from servicelets, alerts you about integration pitfalls, and describes approaches for putting together your technology adoption strategy for building your virtual SOA environment.
