This panel is devoted to the topic of Services Architectures, which play a significant role in the effective operations and delivery of services businesses today. We will discuss our views and findings that describe information technology and systems concepts in the topic areas of:
- Business Architectures, including enterprise architectures, service-oriented enterprises, business process modeling frameworks, enterprise project management:
- Solution/Application Architectures, including Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), information architectures, composite business services architectures, services discovery and invocation architectures, service-to-service collaboration frameworks, solution-level quality-of-service (QoS) and application management architectures, integration architectures, SOA solution reference architectures, and services “mashup” frameworks that leverage Web 2.0 and SOA for data aggregation and message exchanges; and
- Infrastructure Architectures, including operational models, deployment, and system management.
The linkages among these architectures in services business is a key topic for this panel. The other major space we are going to contribute to is the effective enablement and deployment of Services Architectures using software engineering technology and platforms. The linkages with “Services Engineering vs. Software Engineering” will be naturally addressed in this panel.
