About the Book

Book description

Let’s Design On-Demand Business Model

Key Features

● Guide to investigate series of processes/activities (value chain activities) required in Small and Medium size Enterprises (SME).
● Guide for organizations to identify which SOA infrastructure will be needed to build service-based applications for themselves.
● Guide for organizations to test the SOA model in order to meet the changing on-demand business requirements and ensure high level of security and governance.
● Guide to handle interoperability between different vendor infrastructures.


Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an architectural approach that can be shared and reused. The book proposes a service-based architecture approach to design an adaptive business model for small enterprises. It presents an ad-hoc model which is based on five layered SOA architecture that can integrate all activities comprising Supply Chain Management (SCM), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Technical and Enterprise applications tools, and hence, it best suits the SME requirements. This book covers the challenges that SMEs face to compete with large enterprises. It also compares the proposed model with traditional ERP systems and other similar approaches. It is found that the SOA model is efficient, cost-effective, and competent with similar existing solutions. There is always a need to know the scope and size of the work involved while developing a service or deriving any application from service-based model; this book will help in determining the cost and effort for such projects.

What will you learn

The book will cover the detailed study of service-oriented model from the inception of the idea to its final implementation. You will be able to understand the basics components of service-oriented architecture. You will learn how to develop SOA based model and will realize that most of the interoperability problems visible at the conceptual level could be overcome. The successful simulation of integration among business value chain activities by using the service-oriented methodology can be served as guidelines for researchers, system designers, and system stakeholders to obtain integrated and accuracy output information.

Who this book is for

Anyone who is interested to gain knowledge about the architecture of service-based model and would like to pursue research in this domain.
