Subject: Re: [regrep] Direct Data Exchange vs. SOA

>>>Chiusano: I hope to get some good insight in response please:
>>>Let's say we have a purchase order process between trading partners (PO
>>>sent, Invoice received). There are (for the purposes of this inquiry) 2
>>>possible ways to handle this process:
>>>(1) Direct Data Exchange (create XML documents based on a common schema,
>>>and exchange them between trading partners)
>>>(2) SOA (have a purchase order/invoice shared service that is discovered
>>>in a registry, etc.)
>>>My inquiry is: What would drive an organization to use one approach or
>>>the other, from both a business and technical standpoint? For instance,
>>>would "critical mass of services and/or trading partners" be a driver
>>>for SOA vs. direct data exchange?
In the discussion, suggest we also recognize and account for the fact 
that in (1) and (2) that the business process definition may guide the 
exchange regardless of if via a service or via the document exchange.
