There is no "one size fits all" methodology, ours or anyone else's, and so best practice in method development calls for incorporation of a framework of artifacts, tools and techniques that can be tailored to the nuances of each organization that wants to implement the methodology. However, most popular methods don't tend to focus on the needs of service lifecycle instead covering a broad but typically less focused method landscape. CBDI's SAE™ Reference Framework is built to remedy that problem by highlighting aspects of methodology such as process, techniques and artifacts needed to embrace SOA concepts in a structured manner. This article provides an introduction to the Architecture component of the Reference Framework and the rationale that went into its creation.
The SAE Reference Framework is designed to provide a comprehensive framework of all the components necessary to support the migration to and subsequent upkeep of a service oriented enterprise. It addresses the three primary perspectives necessary for capturing methodology - Organization, Process, and Architecture of the Artifacts. These perspectives are built upon a firm "foundation" Model that provides the language and principles of SOA. By tailoring these aspects to the development organization's needs, a clear target mode of operation can be established to drive the SOA adoption cycle.
