Good stuff from Jeff Schneider from MomentumSI, asking why SOA works in some organisations…. what are characteristics of organisations successfully using SOA?

1. They have a single person ultimately responsible for SOA who leads a larger steering committee. This group also attacks organizational and process changes.
2. They created a roadmap with realistic deadlines.
3. They have an EA group where all of the members understand SOA and understand the practical needs of the application architects with regard to SOA.
4. The Application Portfolio Governance group has created a “SOA work stream” and selected new applications are sent down an SOA path.
5. The downstream teams (project managers, analysts, app. architects, designers, coders & testers) have all been trained in SOA.
