ESDH in SOA

by Thorendal

Earlier this week I attended in a 12 hour workshop arranged by CSC and KL. The greater topic for this seminar was how to merge ESDH (the Danish expression for Electronic Case and Documentation Handling) with a proper SOA.
And how interesting is that! Well to me it is spot on what I find interesting workwise, so I did actually use a hole day of my holiday on this arrangement.

My background in library and information science as education and enterprise architecture as work experience must be pretty much a perfect base for having an opinion about this arrangement’s topic. And as it was a workshop there was plenty of time to share my thoughts and hopes for this business. And luckily most of the other attendee felt the same way, so it was an interesting day.

Some of the things there were discussed during the day was:
- What is the core functionality in ESDH
- What do we think the vision is for ESDH
- What are the barriers for the development in ESDH
- Which demands need to be set for FESD II

As there are no rights and wrongs in a discussion about the future there are no really conclusions to sum up on. But one thing can be said though about what must be the conclusion after all, and that is, that most of the people in this forum agreed upon the need to think more in the direction of SOA when it comes to the survival of ESDH in the future. It was also agreed upon that the discussion about it-governance cannot be ignored.

CSC and KL is going to send out a sum up on the day and the discussions we had, and I expect the report they put together will give a good idea about where ESDH will go in the next couple of years. I expect it to be interesting reading!

After dinner John Gøtze joined us and talked about different perspectives on Enterprise Architeture and SOA.
John is an old colleague of mine and he has always been inspiring because of his passion for his work and the architecture-field in general.

By the time I hit my house I was exhausted, it had been such an intensive day and evening. It had been a brilliant arrangement, as everyone had participated greatly. Even though a lot of the attendees were vendors, everyone seemed to have the same goal for the day: To communicate openly and work together.
