SOA Best Practices
SOA best practices are necessary for IT organizations to maintain the high standards in SOA reliability, cost-effective operations, and customer service necessary to address competitive pressures and internal and external users' needs. As a result, many IT groups responsible for an SOA are turning to IT best practices, such as those specified by the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL). These include, for example, the need for operations and applications groups to provide service-level management and meet specific service level targets—from response time targets for interactive systems to the time it takes to diagnose and resolve problems.

SOA and Web Service Management
SOA and Web services management planning is critical for ensuring these IT initiatives deliver their full business value. SOA and Web services bring new technologies and new dependencies that can be quite challenging to manage. Thus, SOA management solutions form an important part of a strategic SOA platform. In this Webinar, Forrester analyst Randy Heffner reviews the key SOA management capabilities that are required for a successful SOA, including SOA security and SOA governance as well as who needs them and when. Actional vice president Dan Foody discusses how Progress Actional SOA and Web service management products meet these requirements and provides a demo of the power of Actional's end-to-end SOA monitoring, the precondition for reliable SOA and Web services operations.

SaaS Architecture
Learn how Fidelity National Information Services (FIS) is deploying a SOA-based SaaS (software as a service) application for near-real-time risk profiling that will help lower bank account risk and prevent the opening of fraudulent accounts. To be effective, however, this application had to be able to meet high performance SLAs, ensure reliable operations with zero downtime, flexibly execute—on the fly—risk profiling transactions customized to individual bank branches and products, and to protect customer privacy. FIS chose Progress Sonic ESB for its scalability and agile service orchestration and Progress Actional web services and SOA management software for its end-to-end visibility into SOA operations, real-time performance monitoring and alerting, and consistent SOA security enforcement.

SOA Primer
With SOA now in production within many organizations, system architects are realizing that the most critical control & SOA governance issue is in runtime. Data point after data point has demonstrated that many SOA implementations are just not working in production as designed or expected. Problems range from service interruptions to entire business processes failing, to compliance risks that generate costly delays and lengthy triage cycles.
