The organizations have been slow to accept Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) because the services are only as beneficial as the access they have to data that is spread out across the enterprise. While IT standards and technologies have matured to help organizations turn business logic into services, but not a substantial effort has been spent to ensure that these services have reliable and consistent access to knowledge of the underlying data. This has resulted to a lack of re-use, added development time for services, complexity, and increased maintenance costs. In this paper, the authors describe about the benefits and advantages combined implementation of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Data Integration with the help of an example.
