SOA for Dummies

Getting started with SOA

You're ready to leverage the innovation of service oriented architecture (SOA). You understand the benefits of modular components and web services-a simplified IT environment, linked services, enhanced business processes, and new opportunities for improvement. Now, where do you get started?

IBM breaks down barriers to getting started with an approach that starts with the fundamental assets of your enterprise-people, information and processes. IBM also helps to lay the technical groundwork for integration of people, processes and information by offering entry points for connectivity and reuse. Our SOA entry points can help your business pursue SOA at a pace that suits your needs.

Which entry point makes sense for you?

There is no single answer-it depends on your business priorities and needs. Taking a business-centric approach to SOA ensures that IT investments remain focused on areas that will mean the most for the bottom line. IBM can help you lay out an approach that's right for you and help architect a project to help you reach that goal. Get started today:
