Abstract:
The SOA Innovation Lab - an innovation network of industry leaders in Germany and Europe - investigates the practical use of vendor platforms in a service-oriented context. As a part of this investigation the SOA capabilities of products from different vendors need to be evaluated. For this purpose a service-oriented architecture evaluation framework has been developed and currently extended, leveraging and extending CMMI and TOGAF, as well as other service-oriented state-of-the art frameworks and methods. Besides details about our evaluation framework, we present and analyze results of various service-oriented platforms from assessments with four major vendors. Our idea and contribution is to extend existing Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) maturity frameworks to accord with a sound metamodel approach. Our metamodel for architecture evaluation is based on the well understood and standardized Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI), which was originally used to assess software processes and not architectures. Our specific architecture capability evaluation approach is the result of a metamodel-based analysis and synthesis from state of art models. The paper presents an original approach for systematically and cyclic evaluations of heterogeneous service-oriented platforms in practical use.
