Overview

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a software architecture design approach towards providing application functionality as services to other applications. From one perspective, SOA may be viewed as a collection of services that may be manipulated at the network and software level to meet the business needs of an organization and/or their customers. While SOA does not mandate specific requirements on individual services in terms of programming languages used or design employed, it ensures that the services are interoperable and retrievable. The interoperability is achieved by the usage of a common service description language.

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Planning, Operation, and Governance for Optimized Service Delivery evaluates the SOA approach to application integration, operation, and related governance issues. The report analyzes the primary players, solutions, and strategies within the SOA ecosystem and provides a forecast for SOA through 2020.
