Abstract for: SOA Governance Dynamics in a multiparadigm approach

SOA refers to the coordination of people, processes and technologies within an organization that has the aim of achieving certain strategic benefits, both by increasing the return on investment (ROI) and organizational agility and by reducing the information technology governance (IT) burden. The ability of SOA to interoperate many different information systems, including legacy systems, helps to accelerate the integration of core systems. From a combination of established methods that include system thinking, Godet's strategic prospective, discrete event simulation, agent based modeling and System Dynamics comes an adaptation of Forrester's Market Growth model to formulate a decision-making governance flight simulation model to represent the interactions of intended rational policies in the study of dynamics that can arise from the complex combinations of SOA Governance factors, principles, and structures.
