SOA Governance at EDP: A Global Energy Company

Energias de Portugal (EDP) ranks among Europe’s major electricity and natural gas operators in the generation, distribution and trading industries. It’s one of the largest players wind energy companies in the world, with more than tem million customers and twelve-thousand workers. In this session hear how an SOA Governance initiative is helping EDP to streamline integrations between systems, establishing a model that closes the gap between business and IT, reducing time-to-market and increasing IT asset reusability.

Information systems play a central role in supporting the business challenges energy companies are facing, as new businesses are developed, as the energy grid and the relationship with customers is changing at a faster pace. EDP operates in a sector where those challenges are particularly acute and where the appropriate SOA approach is of paramount importance. In this presentation we will talk about the challenges of the SOA Governance Program’s definition and implementation, and how the initial plan and subsequent global SOA Governance Framework evolved through EDP’s projects.

September 25, 2012 – 15:30

Manuel Rosa, began his career participating in Enterprise Architecture projects in Portugal, Brazil and Luxembourg, mainly focusing on Application and Business Architectures. In the last few years, he coordinated the development of the SOA Governance Programs and has also been responsible for various SOA Governance projects, in main Portuguese enterprises in the Telecom and Utilities’ industries. He is currently SOA Governance practice leader as the SOA at Link Consulting.

He is also currently teaching assistant on the subjects of Enterprise Architecture I and II, for the POSI postgraduate degree provided by Intituto Superior Técnico, INESC and INOV in a one year program.

The Successful Execution of the SOA and BPM Vision Using a Business Capability Framework: Concepts and Examples

Speaker: Clemens Utschig-Utschig, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharma GmbH & CoKG and Manas Deb, Oracle

At a basic level, SOA advocates software development using self-sustaining packages of IT assets, aka “services”. Each of these services typically represents a unit of business functionality. Similarly, Business Process Management (BPM) focuses on the comprehensive discipline of creating, managing and improving “business processes” which are articulations of (business) activities that help a business function.

A business process often needs services for its execution; a service can sometime include one or more business processes. Thus, relevance of SOA and BPM to the success of a business is immediate and obvious. In fact, over the last decade, a great amount of attention and effort have been dedicated by businesses and technologists to derive substantial benefit from SOA + BPM vision. However, the yield has been quite uneven across companies attempting this combined adoption. Some are enjoying superior competitive advantages, while others have only garnered modest ROIs.

In this fast-paced presentation, author Clemens Utschig-Utschig and Manas Deb explain how ne of the key reasons for low returns from combined SOA and BPM adoption has been the lack of focus on “business capabilities”. Strategies are conceived in order to achieve the goals and objectives of a business; for successful execution of a strategy a set of accurate and well-defined business capabilities is necessary. Using conceptual discussions and examples from the industry, this presentation will explain how business capabilities are related to business strategy execution, and in turn how SOA and BPM adoption can build upon and improve such business capabilities.

Clemens Utschig-Utschig works for Boehringer-Ingelheim′s Global Business Services (GBS) as Chief Architect, helping to establish GBS′ next gen′ business architecture based on service orientation. Before joining BI he worked at the Oracle Headquarters in the United States as platform architect, working with the Fusion Applications development as advisor and supported customers all around the world on their journey towards implementing enterprise-wide SOA. During his platform engineering years, Clemens was responsible for cross product integration, strategic standards as well as a member to the Oracle′s SOA platform steering committee, and served on the OASIS TC for Service Component Architecture (SCA).

In 2006 Clemens co-founded the “Masons-of-SOA“, an inter-company network founded by architects of Oracle Germany, Opitz, SOPERA (Eclipse Project Swordfish founders) and EDS, with the mission of spreading knowledge, fostering discussion and supporting SOA programs across companies and borders. After 14 articles on advanced SOA topics in the German Java Magazin, a three patterns in Thomas Erl′s SOA Design Patterns catalogue, they are currently working on “Next Generation SOA” – slated to release as part of the Service Oriented Computing Series of Prentice Hall for late 2010. Clemens is also a co-author of the SOA Manifesto.

Dr. Manas Deb is a Senior Director in the Fusion Middleware/SOA+BPM+Governance Suites Group at Oracle HQ. He currently leads strategic engagement initiatives for Oracle’s service-oriented integration and BPM solutions worldwide. He is also responsible for Oracle’s SOA methodology initiatives. Manas has worked in the software industry for over 20 years, most of which was spent in software product management/marketing and on architecting and leading a wide variety of enterprise-level application development and business integrations projects in a wide variety of industries. He attended post-graduate studies at the University of Texas at Austin. He has a PhD in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics, as well as an MBA. Click Here to View Speaker Profile

Big Data with CEP and SOA – September 25, 2012 – 14:15

Speaker: Markus Zirn, Oracle

and Baz Kuthi, Avocent

The “Big Data” trend is driving new kinds of IT projects that process machine-generated data. Such projects store and mine using Hadoop/ Map Reduce, but they also analyze streaming data via event-driven patterns, which can be called “Fast Data” complementary to “Big Data”. This session highlights how “Big Data” and “Fast Data” design patterns can be combined with SOA design principles into modern, event-driven architectures. We will describe specific architectures that combines CEP, Distributed Caching, Event-driven Network, SOA Composites, Application Development Framework, as well as Hadoop. Architecture patterns include pre-processing and filtering event streams as close as possible to the event source, in memory master data for event pattern matching, event-driven user interfaces as well as distributed event processing. Focus is on how “Fast Data” requirements are elegantly integrated into a traditional SOA architecture.

Markus Zirn is Vice President of Product Management covering Oracle SOA Suite, SOA Governance, Application Integration Architecture, BPM, BPM Solutions, Complex Event Processing and UPK, an end user learning solution. He is the author of “The BPEL Cookbook” (rated best book on Services Oriented Architecture in 2007) as well as “Fusion Middleware Patterns”.

Previously, he was a management consultant with Booz Allen & Hamilton’s High Tech practice in Duesseldorf as well as San Francisco and Vice President of Product Marketing at QUIQ. Mr. Zirn holds a Masters of Electrical Engineering from the University of Karlsruhe and is an alumnus of the Tripartite program, a joint European degree from the University of Karlsruhe, Germany, the University of Southampton, UK, and ESIEE, France.
