Recently, I described how service inventory blueprints are an important deliverable when performing service-oriented analysis and modeling. If you review the example I provided, you’ll notice that it contains a collection of service candidates. What’s a service candidate? According to SOAGlossary.com,
The service candidate term is used help distinguish a conceptualized service from an actual implemented service. This distinction is especially important when documenting service inventories as part of blueprint specifications or even when keeping track of a service’s progress via its service profile.
To give you a better idea of how one of these service candidates is documented, here’s a sample of this next level of detail. Contact me if you’d like the original Word file to use for your project.
