Many IT departments utilize industry architectures, such as TOGAF or the Zachman framework. Others might utilize IBM On Demand or HP Adaptive Enterprise. All of these industry architectures focus on the applications or methodologies. But when it comes to tying those applications together, these architectures identify the network as the “cloud” or as the black box that links them together. The architecture doesn’t go into detail about how the network can improve the communication between the two. SONA fills in the gap between those architectures, and shows the benefit of how the network can improve interaction between applications.
Enable the network beyond transport; as a mission-critical platform for convergence, service delivery, and business transformation The network becomes a keystone in delivering an enterprise wide service-based architecture Leverage success of the IP network; it’s ability to consolidate capabilities and improve service delivery Drive standardization Provide future proofing, investment protection
