SOA Consortium Releases New Podcast From Kshemendra Paul, Chief Architect, Office of Management & Budget (OMB) on "The Practical Guide to Federal Service Oriented Architecture (PGFSOA)".
Kshemendra Paul presented an overview on the Practical Guide to Federal Service Oriented Architecture (PGFSOA) to a packed SOA Consortium meeting in March. He began with an overview on why SOA is important to the Federal government, key issues and success criteria. He briefly touched on two areas where standards are making an impact, including the Federal Transition Framework and the Records Management standards, both collaborations between the OMG and various government agencies.
Kshemendra mostly talks about the PGFSOA and the challenges, opportunities and benefits of Federal SOA. He discusses the benefits including the ability to share solutions, services, best practices and acquisition power across organizations and says that SOA is the key from moving from a vertical to a horizontal viewpoint. During his overview on Federal enterprise architecture, he stresses the need to view the use of IT from a business perspective and to expand the concept of reuse beyond components to entire architectures and solutions. He also talks about the need for bottom-up change and the goal of building a community, which is part of the rationale behind the PGFSOA wiki. Kshemendra concludes his presentation with a tour of the PGFSOA wiki.
