Maximizing SOA Returns With Enterprise Architecture
Over the last few years, Service Oriented Architectures have evolved from the latest technology fad to a well established architecture model for organizations. Service Oriented Architectures offer many advantages including cost reduction through shared services, agility through dynamic orchestration of services, and improved interoperability between application silos. The evolution of tools for implementing SOA has dramatically simplified the creation and management of services in an organization. While this has reduced the barriers for implementing services and improved integration between applications, many organizations have not been able to realize the value of a shared services infrastructure that promotes service re-use.
