In advance of a new product that we'll be releasing soon - we've made available an ebook called "Designing Solutions using the Service-Oriented Analysis and Design Model Accelerator". The ebook is FREE to download - more details available at: http://www.theemphasysgroup.com/market-place-overview/ The Model Accelerator is an extension to Rational Software Architect for WebSphere - simplifying and automating the creation of SOA solutions. The extension includes patterns for automating the construction of models, constraints for guiding model creation, and a set of reports for reviewing and sharing details. So why announce this in an EA forum? A few reasons jump to mind:
1. The accelerator can help the EA team to drive best practices into the Solution and Technical teams. The patterns and contraints can assist the EA team in getting everyone adopting and adhering to the same set of best practices.
2. The built-in reports (Goals-Service Model, Service Litmus Test, and Pattern Instance) - further support governance, reviews and adherence to best practices.
3. Business Alignment is a key aspect of SOA. The combination of patterns, constraints and reports support the organization in delivering solutions that align with and realize business goals.
We're excited to be bringing the ebook and the Model Accelerator to market. Please reach out if you have any questions or comments.
