SOA From a Management Perspective: Part One


The big buzzword in enterprise-wide package software is service-oriented architecture (SOA). SOA promises to solve a company's software ills, making life easier for information technology departments. This research note takes a look at this new architecture and highlights some concerns.

dvds  You can play multiple DVDs in the player. You can even play the same DVD in another player, but the sound quality may not be the same. SOA, however, should not be confused with object-oriented programming (OOP). Following our DVD example, in OOP the DVD would come with its own player, not to be separated. This diminishes one of the primary advantages of SOA, namely reusability.

LMS Can Help Regulate Good Ethical Practices


When we talk about the benefits of learning management systems (LMS), training and employee competency usually come to mind. For that reason, LMS is often considered a less-than vital business activity (since it doesn’t address “core” business issues). Add to that the fact that nobody really enjoys training, and you’ve got a recipe for, well, no LMS. However, when it comes to compliance issues
