  • Enterprise architects believe that SOAs help businesses respond more quickly and cost-effectively to the changing market conditions they may face by promoting reuse and interconnection of existing IT assets rather than more time consuming and costly reinvention. In some respects, SOA can be considered an evolution in architecture, not a revolution. It captures many of best practices or actual use of the architectures that came before it. To talk in terms of a service-oriented architecture provides a good framework from which to build the dynamic solutions required today. In communications systems, for example, there has been little deployment in recent years of solutions that use truly static bindings to talk to other equipment in the network, but by formally embracing a SOA approach, solutions are better positioned to stress the importance of well-defined, highly interoperable interfaces. This should greatly decrease integration costs and allow for much more dynamic solutions to be deployed. Source: Wikpedia:

    4. 5. <ul><li>Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) expresses a perspective of software architecture that defines the use of services to support the requirements of software users. </li></ul><ul><li>Unlike point-to-point architectures, SOAs comprise loosely coupled, highly interoperable services. These services interoperate based on a formal definition (or contract) which is independent from the underlying platform and programming language (e.g., WSDL). </li></ul>
