Services Oriented Architecture (SOA)

Today’s enterprises face an array of challenging situations, including an overabundance of heterogeneous and decentralized application platforms (such as ERP,Internet portals) and a plethora of monolithic custom applications in silos lacking a unified view of enterprise. As a result, business processes are fragmented over multiple products and data is duplicated and inconsistent .When combined with rigid architectures, interactions are becoming inefficient and processing is slow. These problems are exacerbated when complex information interactions are spread across different IT systems. Above all, Increasing competitiveness and rapid changes requires business agility while maintaining lower cost of ownership. With Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) initiative, enterprises can simplify and streamline complex interactions, enabling them to focus on profitable growth.

The main objective with SOA initiatives is to enable a more agile, flexible and standardized approach to designing, developing and deploying functionality that is often scattered throughout established IT systems.
- Gartner, Inc., "Benefits and Challenges of SOA in Business Terms”, September 2005

To reap the optimum benefits of SOA, Enterprises should consider a strategic and long-term roadmap so that SOA Initiatives produce many business gains, some of which include increased agility due to high responsiveness to business initiatives and reduced vendor lock-in with loose coupling, lower implementation and operational costs due to services reuse, centralized data quality management, simplified existing architecture and minimized resource-intensive processes.
