  4. 4. Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) <ul><li>Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is a collection of services on a network that communicate with one another. The services are loosely coupled (meaning that an application doesn't have to know the technical details of another application in order to talk to it), have well-defined , platform-independent interfaces , and are reusable . </li></ul><ul><li>Gartner estimates that by 2008, more than 60 percent of enterprises will use SOA as a &quot;guiding principle&quot; when creating mission-critical applications and processes. </li></ul>Definition from CIO Magazine, author TODD DATZ, Jan 2004
