SOA Practitioners’ Guide Part 1 Why Services-Oriented Architecture?

Nov. 6, 2009

SOA is relatively new, so companies seeking to implement it cannot tap into a wealth of practical expertise. Without a common language and industry vocabulary based on shared experience, SOA may end up adding more custom logic and increased complexity to IT infrastructure, instead of delivering on its promise of intra and inter-enterprise services reuse and process interoperability. To help develop a shared language and collective body of knowledge about SOA, a group of SOA practitioners created this SOA Practitioners’ Guide series of documents. In it, these SOA experts describe and document best practices and key learnings relating to SOA, to help other companies address the challenges of SOA. The SOA Practitioners’ Guide is envisioned as a multi-part collection of publications that can act as a standard reference encyclopedia for all SOA stakeholders.
