How to get value from E-SOA

My presentation last Friday at our Learning Day was titled: "E-SOA in the real world".

Have you ever seen an End-to-End Enterprise SOA Scenario? No, well you are probably more close to it than you can imagine.
A high-level term taken explained on a deep down level to prove that we can bring E-SOA to live at our customers site.

Key take-a-ways are:

  • E-SOA is a mindshift in thinking and doing
  • Focus on process in stead of technology
  • Facilitate the information workers
  • Quickly follow up on innovations in business processes
  • Think out-of-the SAP box
  • Get your hands dirty

Glad that I am not alone ;-) Have a look at this Gartner article, How to get value now from SAP's Enterprise SOA, posted today on SDN.
