A majority of the largest global organizations (61%) expect no more than 30 percent of their SOA services to be eventually reused or shared across business units.
An 84% majority, these same respondents consider service reuse is one of their most critical metrics for SOA success.
50% say they already have an incentive program to encourage reuse. What wasn’t clear was if these incentives were carrots or sticks.
59% of the money for SOA projects is coming from business solutions budgets attributed to existing projects. Only 19% cannibalized other IT projects. Even more interesting is the fact that 22% reported they have a specific budget with funds earmarked for SOA projects.
