Achieving Business-Driven SOA

Is your SOA initiative aligned with your business strategy? Business results are the key to SOA success.

A successful service-oriented architecture (SOA) initiative is one that focuses on achieving key business goals rather than just technical proficiency - it is businessdriven SOA. By aligning SOA initiatives with well-defined enterprise strategies, companies can better contain costs, comply with governance mandates, meet competitive challenges and position themselves to keep pace with changes in market conditions.
