If you've made the strategic decision to adopt a service-oriented architecture (SOA) for your organisation, you know it's a significant undertaking that will have far-reaching impact on your business and your IT environment. But do you know what kind of infrastructure you need to support your SOA objectives? How do you design your infrastructure to handle the change and provide value in the future?
IBM can help create infrastructure conceptual and specification designs
A successful implementation of an SOA requires considerable resources—including expertise for designing the underlying IT infrastructure needed to support an SOA. Because SOA is a relatively new approach in an environment where tools and best practices are evolving at a rapid pace, getting the right knowledge and good advice can be difficult.
IBM SOA Infrastructure Consulting Services - infrastructure architecture and design for SOA is designed to help you deploy an SOA faster and with reduced risk by offering you access to IBM's skilled SOA and IT infrastructure professionals and our proven methods, best practices and assets for creating the infrastructure necessary to support an SOA framework. Through a variety of information-gathering techniques and proven architecture design methodologies, we'll help you:
The freedom to choose the next step
IBM SOA Infrastructure Consulting Services - infrastructure architecture and design for SOA is designed to be vendor neutral. We realise that you probably have heterogeneous environments, multiple platforms, dozens of applications and users spread out across multiple sites. You need design expertise, not a commitment to any one technology or vendor.
These services allow you to consider your entire infrastructure design and know that the choices you make after the engagement are still up to you. You can continue to work with IBM for the deployment phase of the SOA infrastructure or you can chose other options, including in-house deployment.
