Connecting EA and SOA

This presentation discusses the relationship between Enterprise Architecture and Service Oriented Architecture - "EA and SOA can complete each other via Enterprise Service Oriented Architecture (ESOA)"

The connection between EA and SOA discusses the following:

  • EA provides SOA with enterprise view
  • SOA brings new agility to EA practice, helps EA get broader acceptance, and makes EA usable
  • Modeling EA in a service-oriented manner – ESOA
  • Simplify ESOA modeling via horizontal and vertical partition –> domain segmentation and service federation
