Baltimore — Research and advisory firm ZapThink has released the third version of its "ZapThink SOA Implementation Roadmap" poster. ZapThink has distributed more than 100,000 copies of its first two versions of the poster, the first in 2003 and then updated in 2005. The latest version adds cutting-edge thought leadership in service-oriented architecture (SOA), includes detail on architectural artifacts, and expands coverage of SOA quality, enterprise mashups, and more.

The map is available in pdf format at no charge.

Baltimore-based ZapThink says its SOA Implementation Roadmap poster provides organizations of all sizes and types an at-a-glance view at how to approach implementing SOA in a way that provides return-on-investment (ROI) at each step along the path toward agile IT infrastructure.

Included on the poster are the steps and phases by which companies can move from today's brittle infrastructures to loosely-coupled, coarse-grained services.

The poster covers concepts in point-to-point Web services implementations for integration, securing, managing, governing, and adding process layers to these services, maintaining full-lifecycle SOA quality, implementing intermediaries for loose coupling, enterprise mashups, dynamic documents, and more.

The poster also shows the big picture for SOA adoption and includes the details on how to actually go about implementing SOA in a logical progression of steps, each resulting in significant ROI.
