Service oriented architecture thinking will help organizations manage the Big Data boom with the flexibility and agility needed for it to be valuable to the business.
That’s the view of Steve Jones, a long-time proponent of SOA best practices and director of strategy for Big Data and analytics at Capgemini. In a new post. Jones urges that service oriented thinking be extended to data environments.
In spririt, SOA means doing away with rigid and monolithic approaches to systems, and breaking vital components down into digestable chunks of services. Jone proposes a “Business SOA” approach that will do away with the monolithic approaches to data management, in favor of more flexible, distributed approaches.
