Forward-thinking architects and developers are addressing the complexity of their application and IT environments with Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), which facilitates the development of enterprise applications as modular business services that can be easily integrated and reused, creating a truly flexible, adaptable IT infrastructure.
To learn more about Service Oriented Architecture and real customer implementations below are some links to Whitepapers:
