IDS Scheer AG: ARIS SOA Architect

A service-oriented architecture (SOA) starts and ends with a company’s business processes. Enterprises can only adapt quickly to new market requirements if their business processes are properly modeled and then translated into technical services in a structured fashion. ARIS SOA Architect enables users to design an SOA based on the business processes deployed in the various departments.

The Service Browser in ARIS SOA Architect makes it easy to identify services for automating business activities. Because services are linked to business activities in the ARIS process model, executable BPEL processes can be generated automatically. After the BPEL processes have been exported, they can be executed on platforms, such as, IBM WebSphere, Oracle SOA Suite, BEA WebLogic, and SAP XI.

Combining the business and systems layers of an SOA in ARIS reveals interdependencies and allows informed intervention. A mouse-click shows which service is used in which process. Thus, if a service fails, there is a way to find out fast which business process is impacted and who needs to be informed with regard to the commercial and IT responsibility. An SOA therefore ends as it begins — by supporting business processes.

Your benefits:

  • Intuitive documentation and modification of business processes
  • Automated derivation of platform-independent, executable BPEL processes from business processes
  • Establishment of a comprehensive SOA repository for all business and technical elements of an SOA
  • Continuous process monitoring through optional integration of ARIS Process Performance Manager
  • Enhanced agility that allows a real-time response to changing market conditions Focus Areas: BPEL | DITA | ebXML | IDtrust | OpenDocument | SAML | UBL | UDDI
