Paths to SOA

data source: http://blogs.zdnet.com/service-oriented/?p=301

Earlier this month, analysts and speakers at Forrester’s GigaWorld conference offered some leading thinking on opportunities ahead in the world of SOA. Forrester analyst Randy Heffner made the case that "business drives architecture" in this new era and "you need vision to guide the evolution of SOA." He also argued that SOA creates opportunities for "pluggable business," pointing to Starbucks’ use of the Microsoft MapPoint Web service as a store locator.

However, Heffner’s most significant recent contribution to SOA thinking lies in his paper, "Your Paths to Service-Oriented Architecture." In the report, he states, "There are multiple paths to SOA, each with its own characteristics and architectural priorities."

He cites six major paths to SOA:

[轉貼]困頓人生的奮力一搏 ── 羅大哥的【賞味咖啡】

因著寫劇本的機緣,接觸到工殤者(工作傷害者)羅大哥,之前看到羅大哥,是在工殤協會的紀錄片工作坊中,當時對溫文的羅大哥留下深刻的印象,他一家三口,有三張殘障證,太太和兒子都是弱視,而羅大哥本身則因在工地被涵管壓傷,下肢截肢,長年都戴著義肢,只有在相熟的場合中,才安心的褪下不透氣的義肢,按摩按摩傷肢,沈重的生活壓力,對兒子未來的期待和憂心,從他略顯曲婁的身形中,我感受到一個父親,那長期默默承擔、難以放手的重擔。

而第一次喝到羅大哥的咖啡,也是在協會,只聽說羅大哥在社大學泡咖啡,下課就泡給學員們【賞味】,藉以磨練沖泡的技巧,不久後,又聽說羅大哥打算用最後的老本【奮力一搏】,開個流動咖啡店,用自己的手藝營生,看看能不能為自己和家人,開出一條路來。

雲門芭雷舞團 ? 雲門歌仔戲? 還是雲門馬戲團?

你看過雲門舞集嗎? 是否常常覺得雲門舞集跳得「很玄」、「太藝術」、「看不懂? 有人說, 雲門給人的感覺,似乎只是丁字褲和扭動的身軀、催眠的藝術。 我第一次欣賞雲門的演出,舞碼是什麼早已不復記憶, 只覺得坐立難安。或許我應該這樣說, 起初的感動是令人印象深刻,但從頭到尾統一的基調與深沉的音樂卻令我的感動彈性疲乏! 不可諱言, 這樣的藝術要普羅大眾接受不是件容易的事, 相較於太陽馬戲團(Cirque du Soleil)融合了音樂, 魔術與戲劇的張力,  還有驚心動魄, 攝人眼目的各式體操表演,雲門舞集之於太陽馬戲團就如同清粥小菜之於滿漢全席! ...繼續閱讀
