service oriented architecture


Within a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), providers offer certain services for the benefit of consumers as regulated in the context of a service contract. The contract stipulates, among other things, certain non-functional requirements such as performance and availability.

A dad, on the other hand, is supposed to provide all sorts of services without a specification. And he should always be available.

A beautiful picture and a imaginative caption. He can't renegotiate the terms of the contract either...

Some things in life can't be contractualised.

Cute!

I should point out that SOA is primarily a concept within the field of computing.

VP: The best things in life are not renegotiable...

cieldequimper: Amen to that.

Halcyon: They sure are.

Thanks all for contemplating service management with us.

It looks like these little ones have made their specifications clear! Their service management appears to be excellent.

Well, of course. Who told you any different?

Could you go a little faster, though?

This man has certainly found an effective way to stay warm.

Three Rivers: And they'll no doubt grow up to become critical consumers.

Jacob: Right! Faster...

Alexander: I wonder if they had been going all the way along the plowed track around the lake.

arabesque: Kids do. Someone else will have to take care of the shoveling (and the occasional cursing).

Tinsie: I could have asked if he offers tours for groups! :)

Again, thanks everyone.
