With cloud, mobile, social, and big data analytics technologies becoming more interwoven, the SOA approach is more important than ever for offering insight into integrating systems from end to end. By applying Service-Oriented Architecture principles, an enterprise can manage and govern business and IT transformation, setting it apart from its competitors.
Business processes often run on existing applications and computing environments long after they were first put in place. Changing the entire IT infrastructure to accommodate new functionalities or building each application from the ground up each time is too expensive and time-consuming for most enterprises. SOA is an answer to this problem. It aims at making systems more agile and responsive to changing business needs. Using SOA in their systems, companies can enhance, develop, maintain, and manage applications with greater ease while responding to changing business and IT needs proactively and cost-effectively.
The architectural concepts associated with SOA are not new – many have evolved from ideas originally introduced by CORBA, DCOM, DCE, and others. Unlike these previous initiatives, however, SOA can enable agile business processes via open, standards-based interoperability.
Edvantis uses Service-Oriented Architecture as its primary integration approach. Our teams have experience with SOA and possess a broad portfolio of SOA skills, spanning integration, processes, operational control, and services.
