Controlling Biodiversity Data in the Agricultural Gene Bank Using Service-Oriented Architecture

Indonesia is one of the world’s richest nations in biodiversity. Genetic resources management features a wide range of activities involving various agencies and organizations. Nowadays, data and information on genetic and biodiversity resources are still unintegrated between agencies and institutions. This causes a situation called information silo, which leads to management information systems being ineffective and inefficient. In order to overcome this problem, a flexible, interoperable architecture control is needed. Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an appropriate approach to control distributed and heterogeneous systems to integrate genetic resources data and information systems at the Indonesian Agency for Agricultural Research and Development (IAARD). The SOA system is built by the SOMA method, which consists of some methods. The results show that the new system runs well and it is more effective and efficient than the previous one.
