SOA Services Eliminate Slow, Chaotic Business Processes

SOA, or service-oriented architecture, can best be defined as “services” that provide a platform by which disparate systems can communicate with each other. These services are essentially groups of software components that help a company seamlessly carry out important business processes.

SOA implementation makes interoperability between heterogeneous applications and technologies possible.

Once developed, SOA services can be easily consumed in various applications and business processes

To illustrate this in a real world setting, let us consider an e-commerce site like, or any online retailer for that matter. In order for you to have a seamless transaction, several systems developed at different times using different operating platforms have to work together.

One program for instance tracks inventory and relays the information to your interface, which is the web in this case. An entirely different program altogether runs a shopping cart where your selections are stored while you shop. When you’re finished shopping and ready to check out, there will likely be a separate program that processes your payment.

Without SOA services, this process would be chaotic and lead to frustration on the part of the customer

This doesn’t mean that each application has to know the technical details of another application in order for the two to “talk” or otherwise communicate.

There are literally hundreds more examples of how implementing SOA helps eliminate slow, chaotic business processes.

Consultants at Innovative Architects help clients in a wide variety of industries find or develop suitable SOA services for their business processes.

SOA implementation carries several benefits, including:

  • Rapid assembly
  • Shortened deployment time
  • Reduced operating costs
  • Reduced risk of failure

SOA services also allow businesses like yours to leverage existing investments and applications without resorting to expensive system upgrades

Many of these SOA services are in fact available through a public registry or can be developed from scratch.
