There is also an IBM SOA Self Assessment for determining your organization's readiness for SOA. According to IBM, the SOA assessment tool enables clients to determine:
- Their level of SOA sophistication described in clear, straight-forward terms
- Advantages that are already attainable with their existing integration infrastructure and current SOA readiness
- Benefits they can accrue in the future as they evolve their integration capabilities and service-orientation
- Recommendations for achieving greater business flexibility through improved SOA readiness
There will also be an SOA webcast on Sept. 20th by Robert LeBlanc, who is the Software Group manager in charge of all WebSphere products. You can register for the webcast now.
There's also a site for IBM Business Partners to learn more about using WebSphere products, including SOA: WebSphere Innovation Connection Online for IBM Business Partners. There's also been a good spot on developerWorks for a while now that's good for learning about SOA, New to SOA and Web services.
