The previous sessions focused on various high level patterns for building effective enterprise architectures (EA). From traditional SOA to resource oriented architectures, and from patterns that are seeing a lot of traction such as event driven architectures to web oriented architectures. These high level concepts provide many best practices and guidelines to enterprise architects looking to evolve their existing EA or for those creating newer EA strategies. But where should you draw the line? Where would an EDA really make sense? Is SOA still the way to go or should we turn our attention to a more granular version of this?
This session wraps up all these four architectural styles. It will
- Summarize our findings
- Critically analyze the good, the bad and the ugly (if any) of the various patterns
- Jointly figure out where they should really fit in
