CORBA to Web Services Migration Using Model-Driven Approaches and Offshoring
Georg Huettenegger, Credit Suisse
Huettenegger discussed challenges and lessons learned from migrating one of the world’s largest and most successful CORBA SOAs to a web services SOA.
Credit Suisse is an integrated global bank. It delivers all the possible services that a bank could offer. Credit Suisse employs more than 45,000 people from 160 nations.
The current Credit Suisse SOA is “nice, yet limited.” Where it is headed is not good. It has over 2,500 CORBA service operations, there are 20–30 Mill CORBA calls per day, and there are about 400 consuming applications. With such a large scale and with such widely distributed employees, maybe Agile is not the way to go.
