Mark Carges Bio

In a study performed by InfoWorld and BEA, of almost 700 respondents, only 28% were currently working on an SOA deployment, while more than 50% had no plans or didn’t know. Mark Carges, CTO of BEA Systems, discusses some interesting results of this study and an SOA self-assessment at BEA, from the priority of SOA efforts in the enterprise and the “pain-points” involved in SOA considerations to the “Vision vs. Reality” disconnect of SOA readiness.Mark discusses technical and business-side challenges in implementing a Service Oriented Architecture. The tendency to deploy web service pilot projects in a tightly-coupled, point-to-point fashion and the struggles with data that lives in disparate systems cause some SOA projects to be less useful and reusable than they should be. Security and scalability are other problems that can be encountered by organizations deploying web-service architectures.“The true measure of SOA, at some point someone has to stop writing code, or you’re not sharing. At some point the developers have to put their pencils down and say ‘I’m not going to build a new thing, I’m actually reusing.'” Unless you can achieve this level of service, even service-oriented solutions won’t be the loosely-coupled technologies needed by today’s organizations. Mark’s view is that in order to get to this level, you have to have an infrastructure that supports integrating these various services and he argues that an infrastructure designed around SOA can help solve these problems and make the transition to SOA less painful and more efficient and valuable.Contact a speaker booking agent to check availability on Mark Carges and other top speakers and celebrities.
