The CBDI-SAE Meta Model for SOA is a 'class model' of the concepts contained in the CBDI Service Architecture & EngineeringTM (CBDI-SAETM) Reference Framework. CBDI-SAE is a comprehensive, defined approach for SOA including taxonomy, classification and policies together with repeatable service engineering processes that guide the delivery of the agile enterprise, implemented in a knowledgebase with integrity between the architecture concepts, processes, tasks, techniques and deliverables.
While the meta model enables Everware-CBDI to improve the precision of the CBDI-SAE process and techniques, it will also be needed by:
We also expect that our meta model will be of interest to SOA methodologists and architects in general, whether or not they intend to adopt the specific processes and techniques recommended by Everware-CBDI. While a few "corners" of the model may prove to be peculiar to CBDI-SAE we believe the bulk of the model will be helpful to practitioners interested in exploring the wider service development process.
