This reincarnation would also require reevaluation of the service’s initial technology or an implementation that it is founded on. 6 depicts the four major reasons why a solution service may devolve into a conceptual service: modification to business or technological requirements, modification to business model and mission, concept reevaluation, and restructuring and reengineering. From Solution Back to Analysis Service. Service reengineering initiatives do not always require the transformation of a solution service to its initial state—conceptual service.

8 SOLUTION TO DESIGN TRANSFORMATION and the addition of a service that delivers new functionality. These aspects may influence a service’s accessibility and visibility in the environment in which it operates. 2. Changes that influence external service structures and a packaging solution that is deployed to production. External structures pertain to an overall logical composition of a solution in which services are arranged in certain formations (patterns) to achieve a design strategy, such as interoperability, reusability, asset consolidation, and loose coupling.

What do the business or technological requirements recommend? What services do we actually build? What assets do we reengineer? What kind of metaphors do we use to describe our services? How do we conceptualize our architectural environment? How do we identify our service architecture needs and landscape? Which personnel are involved? Service-Oriented Modeling Framework 25 Separating Concerns and Generalizing Problems.
