From the Back Cover

Achieve Breakthrough Business Flexibility and Agility by Integrating SOA and BPM Thousands of enterprises have adopted Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) based on its promise to help them respond more rapidly to changing business requirements by composing new solutions from existing business services. To deliver on this promise, however, companies need to integrate solid but flexible Business Process Management (BPM) plans into their SOA initiatives. "Dynamic SOA and BPM "offers a pragmatic, efficient approach for doing so. Top IBM(R) SOA architect Marc Fiammante takes you step-by-step through combining BPM and SOA, and using them together to build a more flexible, dynamic enterprise. Throughout the book, he emphasizes hands-on solutions based on his experience supporting dozens of enterprise SOA implementations. Practical from start to finish, "Dynamic SOA and BPM "squarely addresses two of the most critical challenges today's IT executives, architects, and analysts face: implementing BPM as effectively as possible and deriving more value from their SOA investments. Coverage Includes
  • Moving from simplified integration to dynamic processes: realizing the full business value of services
  • Streamlining enterprise architecture to accelerate business and IT alignment
  • Implementing dynamic business processes based on small, flexible modules that can be quickly modeled, tested, delivered, and improved
  • Planning for services and information variability to limit the impact of change on processes and other consumers of services
  • Providing an integration layer between consumers and providers that addresses issues classical Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) approaches cannot solve alone
  • Tooling and practices for the development, management, and monitoring of the complete SOA/BPM life cycle

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.
