SOA Strategies


Definition

SOA Strategies is the strategic vision an organization uses to employ Service Orientated Architecture.

SOA stands for Service Orientated Architecture.

It can be defined as a service or groups of services that work together to pass data or to coordinate some business process.


The Problem Statement

Because of the broad meaning of SOA, associated products and vendors, there is much confusion or lack of consensus in what the goals and/or benefits of SOA are to an organization.

So, it heightens the importance of IT articulating the value of its technology strategy to corporate decision makers.

The correlation between architecture and successful business-driven initiatives such as cloud computing and software as a service, and how to avoid common architecture mistakes.


Why many think SOA may be Dead!

  • Confusion surrounding the context of SOA
  • Up front costs to implement are difficult to justify
  • Companies are unable to show the benefits
  • Unable to translate SOA benefits to the bottom-line
  • Cloud Computing will replace SOA



SOA is not Dead!

In fact, properly deploying a comprehensive SOA Strategy can bring many benefits including helping an organization leverage Cloud Computing.

Companies will find it very difficult to successfully implement Cloud Computing without well thought out SOA.

IT Governance

Another one of SOA's biggest's benefits are the ways that it can ensure IT Governances and Policies.

It can promote controls by encouraging standardized practices.

In addition, it can provide the transparency into the use of applications and data the IT Governance requires.
