Flashline Announces Best Practices for Service-Oriented Architecture

    Online News published in DMReview.com
January 16, 2006

Flashline, a provider of software asset portfolio management solutions, announced the availability of professional services and best practices to help companies govern service-oriented architecture (SOA) and manage Web services as a portfolio of strategic assets to improve business agility. Flashline's SOA service offerings are based on best practices gained through extensive experience with Fortune 500 companies and Federal agencies in SOA engagements and are combined with professional services that Flashline has long delivered to its customers for software asset management, reuse, architecture and governance.

According to Gartner, Inc., "Through 2008, 70 percent of IT organizations will fail to successfully select and implement an SOA strategy on the first try (0.7 probability)." Flashline's best practices are based on real-world experiences and help organizations avoid common mistakes in SOA implementation.

A framework of proven managerial and organizational practices for executives and architects forms the foundation of the consulting services, which include program management, service portfolio management, service release management and project portfolio productivity. Through iterative cycles and practices, organizations can quickly incorporate a systematic and governed approach to SOA planning, development, deployment and management through software asset portfolio management. This approach helps organizations to achieve the large cost-savings and efficiency improvements of a strategic, enterprise-wide SOA.

Flashline's SOA services ensure that customers are investing in the right Web services and that Web services are aligned with business priorities. With sound SOA management, reuse and governance practices in place, enterprises can track the full lifecycle of Web services and other assets, manage policies, monitor progress toward the target architecture and develop solutions within the requirements of the architecture. As the SOA program advances, Flashline supports customers through periodic program assessments to help them stay aligned with the goals of the SOA deployment and deliver measurable, ongoing business value through SOA.
