IBM invents, develops and manufactures IT products, including computer systems and software, system networks, storage hardware and microelectronic products. It also offers a comprehensive range of services, methodologies, programs and even financing. A Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a complex concept. It is not always easy for organizations to understand how it can deliver business value. Without that understanding, clients are hesitant to buy-particularly during the current economic downturn. IBM felt that the best way to enable clients to see the relevancy of SOA to their organizations was to provide them with hands-on experience using real-world scenarios. The IBM SOA Sandbox is a cloud offering designed to allow clients the convenience of experiencing IBM middleware without having to install it locally.
