The SOA Earthquake: iWay Software’s Senor on Shifting Tectonic Plates

The ground beneath information managers continues to shake, according to iWay Software’s John Senor. Is SOA an earthquake, or just a tremor?

Moderated by Eric Kavanagh

Does the service-oriented architecture (SOA) represent a tectonic plate shift for information management? That’s the word from SOA proponent John Senor, president of iWay Software. As the integration arm of Information Builders, iWay doesn’t just talk the SOA talk; they’re walking the walk with an official enterprise service bus (ESB) offering to complement their bread-and-butter integration technologies.

In this exclusive TDWI Radio News interview, you’ll learn:

  • iWay Software’s SOA strategy
  • the difference between SOA and enterprise application integration (EAI)
  • tightly coupled versus loosely coupled services
  • the danger of an SOA “hybrid” approach
  • what’s up with Google and business intelligence

Sample Quote:

“I liken an enterprise service bus to integration brokers that are now standards-based and on a very serious South Beach diet.”
