SERVICE ORIENTED ARCHITECTURE

To thrive in today’s ultra-competitive marketplace, top businesses of all sizes and in all industries are looking for better ways to achieve operational excellence that enables them to run their companies more efficiently and cost-effectively. They need to drive innovation that matters to recognize market needs and respond to them quickly and decisively.

Service oriented architecture (SOA) is a standards-based and business-driven IT architectural approach to managing services made available by different software packages for reuse and reconfiguration.

In the past few years, SOA has evolved from being considered a cutting-edge concept for the most forward-thinking companies into a mainstream practice driving real business value in every corner of household-name and local companies alike. The business value that SOA brings is well-established, expanding and mainstream.

SOA, is an increasingly adopted approach for helping organizations harness maximum business efficiency and effectiveness from the widest possible range of enterprise IT assets. By providing businesses with the opportunity to develop a new degree of competitive differentiation, SOA makes it possible to expand business adaptability and flexibility while delivering faster time to market. It can significantly improve software reuse, flexibility and comprehensibility, and can also improve the visibility of software’s value to the business. As a result, SOA can help address the needs of both business and IT stakeholders: acting as a unifying force in IT-business alignment.

Given the complexity of SOA-based programs and projects, organizations need to prioritize opportunities for SOA deployment, identify qualitative and quantitative SOA value drivers and pinpoint specific SOA initiatives that bring the most value to a business or government. In SOA deployment, very little has been standardized on beyond the use of Web services. Due to the lack of standard technologies, SOA remains challenging to manage for most IT organizations. Buying technologies from several vendors and building the SOA component stack is the most common form of SOA deployment today.
