SOA Adoption Not Always Thought Out

Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is a way of developing and deploying applications so that components and the apps themselves can easily connect. And this component-based approach also makes it easier to drop in new functions. (If I've got the definition wrong, feel free to correct me at [email protected]) The end result should be faster development and deployment, all leading to cost savings and a better return.

But according to Gartner, many enterprises adopt SOA because it seems like everyone else is doing it, and not really looking at business value or ROI.

That might be true, but it might also be that the salesmen and saleswomen from the big SOA vendors are good at what they do. Does your shop use SOA? Send me your whys and why nots at [email protected]
