Web Services, Service-Oriented Architectures, and Cloud Computing is a jargon-free, highly illustrated explanation of how to leverage the rapidly multiplying services available on the Internet. The future of business will depend on software agents, mobile devices, public and private clouds, big data, and other highly connected technology. IT professionals will need to evaluate and combine online services into service-oriented architectures (SOA), often depending on Web services and cloud computing. This can mean a fundamental shift away from custom software and towards a more nimble use of semantic vocabularies, middle-tier systems, adapters and other standardizing aspects.

This book is a guide for the savvy manager who wants to capitalize on this technological revolution. It begins with a high-level example of how an average person might interact with a service-oriented architecture, and progresses to more detail, discussing technical forces driving adoption and how to manage technology, culture and personnel issues that can arise during adoption. An extensive reference section provides quick access to commonly used terms and concepts.

  • Broad, non-technical explanation of a technical topic for managers at all levels
  • Only web services book to cover data management and software engineering perspectives; excellent resource for all members of IT teams
  • Provides a set of leadership principles and suggested applications for using this technology

From the Back Cover:

Today’s business world is becoming more nimble with the widespread adoption of technologies like Web services, service-oriented architecture (SOA), and cloud computing. This IT evolution is enabling lower cost of design, deployment, and maintenance for the systems and services that support business processes.

Web Services, Service-Oriented Architectures, and Cloud Computing gives you the insight into how these technologies can move your company forward, how to take advantage of these infrastructures and technologies, and how to not only make knowledgeable decisions with your IT team, but to lead them in the right direction.

  • Approachable. This non-technical book assumes no prior knowledge of the technology discussed within. Using easy-to-understand examples, technical details are progressively introduced and explained so that you can stop reading once you understand what you need to know.
  • Expert Advice. Learn how to manage the change needed for Web services, service-oriented architectures, and cloud computing. As part of managing change, this book introduces an incremental SOA analysis to improve the project selection process and improve the chance of success for the selected project.
  • Fully Updated. This thoroughly updated 2nd edition expands on the forces driving the adoption of Web services and SOA to include cloud computing. It shows how cloud computing intensifies forces driving the adoption of SOA.
