muSOAing for 8/10/09

So how do you start off on Canonicals. You must have completed a few of the critical steps listed for the SOA Competency Center. A core overview and implementation team should be in place. The first step for this is to involve at least two people, a competent Business Analyst with good Subject Matter Expertise. This resource should be fairly technical with fairly good knowledge of XML and Schemas.

Working closely with this BA should be a strong technical resource who works closely with the BA to provide hands on technical support, including implementation of Pilots.

Here is a cheat sheet of how this Canonical Modeling Task should start. As I have mentioned already, this is a strategic effort so in order for it to be effective, you have to go the whole nine yards. It has to encompass the entire organization. Depending of the size of the organization this effort can range from 3m to 1yr even if schemas are available from RosettaNet, HIPAA etc.
