Practical Application of Data Convergence

A typical Healthcare Information Exchange (HIE) accepts data from an array of disparate sources. Often the data it accepts is semantically and syntactically altered by a providing system to satisfy interfacing requirements. However, there are also cases where data from different sources need to be properly merged before reaching the HIE's interface.

Applying SOA to improve US Medicaid and Medicare

Whew, it has been a while since I wrote my last blog.  New initiatives for the new year have been keeping me fully consumed.  However, one of these new initiatives has reached a point where it was time to get it written up on my blog.

The cost of Medicaid and Medicare has been written about often as government budgets are re-evaluated and the new administration takes root.  With econonmic times being what they are the number of beneficiaries are increasing in an already overburdened system of service to US state and local communities.

Practical Recommendations for Delivering Software Services

As I wrote about in the beginning of this year is SOA dead as many pundits proclaim?  Or are there new targeted approaches to Service Delivery that are mature, practical, economical, and better positioned for success?

We have assembled a panel of Gartner & Burton Group analysts, customers, and events to showcase how service orientation can be a practical transformation agent for key business and IT initiatives.

We call it: "Practical Approaches to Service Delivery", which will be delivered as a webinar series.

Governing Services ... What does it take?

Service governance is a topic I find myself engaged in often now. 

The discussions take many forms such as:  "What is governance?", "How do I apply it to my service architecture"?, "What vendors are relevant?", "What standards are relevant?", "What features and capabilites matter most in practical deployments?"

It's 2009 ... Are we still talking about SOA?

Happy New Year to all of you :-).  As each year passes and a new one begins I often find myself thinking about where to focus or re-focus my time and energy.

Recently I have been forwarded or have come upon a number of articles, webinars, research reports, and blogs with a common theme: SOA has failed.  SOA doesn't work.  SOA is dead.  Maybe it is just me being more sensitive due to my annual ritual of re-evaluation, or maybe there is a real trend underway here.

The need for a "Right-Sized" SOA

I have been writing over the last month or so about how the adoption of SOA is evolving in organizations and that in most cases tactical deployment is occuring by individual business domain driving the need for a "Right-sized" federated SOA which segments and connects an enterprise architecture through appropriately targeted layers of technology

What's better for implementing SOA: All-in-One Stack or Best-of-Breed?

Classic architecture considerations never seem to pass up a generation.  The classic debate of whether it is better to buy and implement an "all-in-one" SOA stack from one vendor or to embark on a "best-of-breed" strategy where specific vendors and technology are selected for specific capabilities is a regular discussion I find myself particpating in often. 

Simplifying Multicore Optimization for Enterprise Applications

There has been much written and discussed about the technology advantages and business value of multi-core computing. At Oracle Open World last week, Intel's CEO provided several compelling examples of how multi-core computing can improve business outcomes, save dollars, and even potentially save lives.
