Recently we saw that the “SOA Symposium – Government and Industry Best Practices” event took place in Arlington, VA, and on the agenda were some interesting presentations discussing the benefits of combining business process management (BPM) with SOA.
Greg Carter, Chief Technology Officer at Metastorm, is of the opinion that SOA can only reach its full potential when it’s combined with BPM because services need an environment or a fabric to come together. Since services by themselves don’t connect to a business value, they need to be part of a process in order to be able to do so. BPM is the environment where an organization can design and automate its processes while SOA is a valid approach that in the long run can be seen as an evolutionary step towards a more and more flexible architecture.
Despite the rumors that SOA is dead, reality is proving very different. A recent analyst report by Forrester Research discussing the “Five Hot Technologies for Enterprise Architects” showed the take up of SOA accelerating and living up to expectations of IT architects.
If we consider all this, together with the fact that the economic climate has dramatically changed, that process has become more important in business and firms are becoming more process-oriented, we should expect to see a rise in the number of users that will employ a combination of BPM and SOA.
