SOA in the movies

June 19, 2007

I was in Birmingham a couple of weeks ago for a series of talks on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), an approach to IT that is gaining prominence, particularly in corporate environments. There is growing interest in the education sector and the event was organised by UCISA (Universities and Colleges Information Systems Associations).

SOA is a complex concept to get across and requires a rethink of the way an organisation delivers its information services. As part of the day there was an opportunity to see the explanatory animation that JISC have produced. This Quick Time movie provides an excellent introduction to the subject that just about anyone involved in IT will find helpful and be able to grasp.
