As the pace of business accelerates, computing solution delivery frequently fails to support the rapidly evolving business goals for cost, time and quality, creating a backlog of urgent business capabilities, and frustrated stakeholders. There is now a viable alternative that addresses all these goals and complements existing outsourcing and delivery approaches.
The Service Factory as a Service (SFaaS) delivery model combines:
Everware-CBDI is a leader in advancing and applying this approach with our Service Oriented Application Modernization (SOAM™) methodology. The SFaaS model is a highly specialized, factory approach for software service delivery, comprising high levels of life cycle automation with highly skilled professional services that dramatically change conventional cost, time, quality and risk parameters.
SFaaS is an advanced platform for software engineering that revolutionizes the provisioning of software services, achieving 5 to 10X improvements in delivery time to market (TTM). It permits a customer to capture the requirements for a service in an online Specification Portal, provide additional details about the deployment platform, and receive back the code that realizes the service – together with other essential deliverables including the service specification, documentation, UML models and test harness.
Everware-CBDI offers several factory delivery approaches:
Everware-CBDI brings a comprehensive and proven service architecture and delivery reference model and full life cycle agile process which may be customized for specific needs. Our professional services include support for the architecture, specification and integration tasks. In addition, the Service Factory often operates as part of a transformation activity, providing complementary Knowledge Discovery and Modernization services.
The Service Factory as a Service enables a number of key business values:
The Everware-CBDI Service Factory is a specialization of the Software Factory concept applying Agile Model Driven Architecture and Development (MDA/MDD) technologies to software service specification and delivery. Service specification knowledge is captured according to the CBDI-SAETM meta model in a Web portal and delivered using pattern based transformation, enabling rapid delivery of high quality services. Customers may use the specification service component for delivery in conventional development processes, or as part of a full life cycle factory delivery process.
Service Specification is a standalone component or an integral part of the Everware-CBDI Service Factory.
