SOA Services

SOA Services

While serving various clients over the period of time, Touchstone has developed a unique expertise in the orchestration of application services by means of service Oriented Architecture (SOA). SOA is an architectural methodology to build a lightweight application which consists of interoperable services. SOA has shifted the whole paradigm from “What the service is” to “What the service does”. 

 

SOA enables your organization to utilize interoperable and integrated application services in a more lightweight manner than traditional application platforms and can be leveraged much more effectively if delivered through Cloud delivery model which is already a proven superior deployment approach.

 

Our SOA services include:

 

•    SOA Readiness Assessment
•    SOA Strategy and implementation Roadmap
•    Enterprise Integration using SOA
•    SOA Implementation
•    Legacy Modernization and Migration using SOA

 

 

We have several flexible options for customers to evaluate and, if desired, implement a SOA solution for their organization:

 

Discovery 

A one to two day visit to your site to obtain a “snapshot” of your current business and IT position

 

Assessment/ Planning 

A 6 to 12 week engagement that involves interviews with key IT and business stakeholders, reviewing documentation, and holding Joint Application Development (JAD) sessions to identify business requirements and objectives. The end result is a SOA Roadmap that defines your SOA Strategy

 

Implementation 

Local experts take the results of the SOA Assessment and Roadmap and drive the SOA initiative, which may include business process re-engineering, organizational and behavioral models, and upgrading enterprise architecture

 

Support

Local experts maintain a strong relationship with you, providing knowledge transfer and support, and nurturing independence.

 

Benefits of SOA

•    Reduce costs and development time, SOA services can be easily reused and can develop into new composite applications

•     Reduce maintenance costs-reusable services reduce the degree of internal complexity of IT services
•     Improve the quality of services-Increased service reuse creates higher-quality services in multiple testing cycles from different service consumers
•     Reduce the costs of integration, standardized services can work together, allowing disparate applications to connect quickly and easily
