Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)
Source: Carnegie Mellon University
It is clear that Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is having a substantial impact on the way that software systems are developed. According to a 2007 Gartner Group report, 50% of new mission-critical operational applications and business processes were designed in 2007 around SOA, and that number will be more than 80% by 2010. This web cast will provide an overview of SOA (a development paradigm) and explain the implications that SOA adoption has on the processes used to develop service-oriented systems.
