iWay SOA Middleware: An Agile Framework for Fast, Flexible, Low-Risk Service Deployments
Source: iWay Software
Originally, Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) concepts arose in response to demands for better ways to cost-effectively integrate large-scale business processes. The concept was simple: applications and automated processes access information resources through standard service interfaces, without requiring programming or knowledge of lower-level systems. Web services, in particular, provide the open standards needed to implement ubiquitous, reusable business functions, which enable complex business processes to be broken down and implemented as simplified, manageable entities.
