Second book of the MS Architecture Strategy Team

  • Many forces are involved with architecture, but the fundamental principles that govern all
    architectures are simple: it’s easy, it works, it’s familiar, and it can be trusted.
    The purpose of this book is to let you form your own opinions about the impact of
    services orientation on your business and computing environments. This book is not trying
    to be an authoritative reference for service orientation. Rather, presented here is an interesting
    set of classical papers on architecting services by a variety of well-known authors in
    the architectural space. The topics, or architectural viewpoints covered, go from a perspective
    on business architecture, through model-based tools, to map from the business to
    technology to the choices in new IT infrastructure.
