More About the Author

While still in the early fifties, I am from the generation that has used punch cards punch tapes, manual entry of machine code with bit entry switches but also FORTRAN, APL, PL/1, mainframe databases, 390 assembler, SQL, 4th generation Languages, Basic, x86 assembler in device drivers for wireless LAN and network bridges coded in Object Oriented with C++ , also real time operating systems, Java, Perl, Rexx..... Long list, it sounds like being an old timer, but in fact all of this happened in less 30 years. Imagine try to get some business logic running on a few kilobytes today.
Pragmatic architects have scars from experiences in doing wrong choices, but have learned and corrected from their errors. Errare humanum est, perseverare diabolicum.
On the more formal bio I am an IBM Distinguished Engineer (executive level for technical ressources in IBM), World Wide chief architect of the SOA engagements delivered by the SOA Advanced Technology team. and I have been elected to the IBM Academy of Technology in 2003.
I have been 25 years with IBM and before worked on Offshore rigs as a drilling engineer. Overall I have now been in 64 countries around the world, and when people ask me which countries I would prefer to live in, I answer by a preferred list of cities. Culture is often different per city.
Some the cities I prefer are Nice, San Francisco, Sydney, Rio De Janeiro, Santiago de Chile, New York, Buenos Aires, London, Brussels, Copenhagen so you may notice I need to live by the sea or not far from the sea.

Although the author obviously has plenty of experience and knowledge, it isn't relayed to the reader. Through paragraph after paragraph, I feel bludgeoned with words that don't seems to say much. Things that can be said very simply are obscured by the puffed-up language. The first chapter seems to assume that you're already doing extensive BPM in your enterprise.

In all, I can't make it through all the words to find the nuggets - and I'm an enterprise architect for a large organization.

BTW, the diagrams will be barely readable on a Kindle.

I'm an architect (Open Group Distinguished IT Architect, in fact) who has been working on SOA for years. I also co-chair The Open Group's SOA Work Group. Marc takes on tough topics in this book and it's the 1st such book which really provides concrete guidance on issues like how to architect a dynamic solution. Most other discussions talk about the fact that's desirable but leave you without any specific steps to take.

This is NOT a simple topic but it's an important one. I recommend this book for any architect who needs to create designs which support dynamic solutions.

DYNAMIC SOA AND BPM: BEST PRACTICES FOR BUSINESS PROCESS MANAGEMENT AND SOA AGILITY tells how to integrate SOA and BPM for maximum business flexibility and comes from an IBM SOA architect who offers a step-by-step tutorial on combining the two. From moving from simplified integration to a dynamic process to planning for services and providing an integration layer, this is a key pick for any technical computer business library.
