SOA: Service-oriented architecture, a concept for software architecture and management
We also support our clients in introducing a service-oriented architecture. There is no universal definition for SOA. SOA is a principle or method by which existing IT components such as databases, servers and websites can be coordinated and aggregated into high-performing services which are then made available to the client. The success of a transition depends decisively on the commitment and collaboration of the employees, and management in particular. Professional experience and guidance are equally important because the higher complexity compared to conventional architectures requires a greater initial effort in developing an SOA, while savings can only be observed when basic services exist and are used broadly across different parts of the organization.
Implementing it for just one project, hoping to improve it, is usually condemned to failure due to the higher complexity.
We support our customers in tailoring a service-oriented architecture to their particular needs.
