SOA & Security
As James pointed out in his blog, we are trying to bring together a group of practitioners with expertise on SOA & Security for a roundtable conversation. As we first began discussing on LinkedIn, we want to raise awareness on real-world security concerns with SOA. The results of the roundtable discussion will be made public by the OWASP, SOA Consortium and Elemental Links. Why practitioners? We want to explore actual requirements and issues prior to hearing from vendors and consultants on answers.
SOA & ITIL
Recently, during a SOA Consortium CoP call, Judith Hurwitz got us started on an interesting discussion on SOA and Operations Management. The conversation was far ranging, including run-time governance of services, shared infrastructure management / monitoring, capacity planning, understanding access paths and the like. Not surprising, the topic of SOA & ITIL came up. How does ITIL v3 support SOA, who is using ITIL for SOA, what are the challenges, benefits, and more.
The potential of SOA & ITIL v3 is something the SOA Consortium CoP wants to explore further. The first step is to invite experienced practitioners to speak with us at our September member meeting in Orlando.
To volunteer, or nominate, a practitioner for either activity, please leave comment and/or send an email bmichelson at elementallinks dot com.
