Source: Nanyang Technological University
Through the combination of SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) with an intelligent Business Process Management that guaranties the immediate execution of the defined processes in multiple IT-environments, SOA evolves into SOB (Service Oriented Business). SOB delivers a flexible and efficient business environment that supports and guides each and every person involved in a process in the accomplishment of their individual daily tasks by means of a highly adaptable combination of already existing and new innovative IT-Functionality. With SOB it's not the number of available functions or services which constitute the major factor for success, but rather the intelligent linking together of these services to deliver structured meaningful sequences of events which support, improve, and accelerate the Business.
