Service Oriented Architecture (SOA): simply good design

Structure and optimize your business and IT solutions with SOA

Primary tab navigation

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) has several core ideas that should be addressed in your organization's SOA journey:

With the convergence of mobile, social, cloud, and big data analytics, SOA is more important than ever before for offering insight and integrating systems from end to end. By applying Service Oriented Architecture principles, an enterprise can manage and govern business and IT transformation, setting them apart from their competitors. The benefits range from seamless integration, cloud enabled solutions, holistic business insight and agility to externalized APIs. SOA integrates the front office, back office and the Internet of Things.

Middleware, best practices and patterns speed the Service Oriented Architecture journey and amplify the value it creates. IBM has over a decade of experience with SOA and a broad portfolio of capabilities, spanning integration, processes, operational control and services. SOA is “simply good design" — resting on a solid foundation of technology and practices that support your organization’s journey into the changing world of mobile, social, cloud and big data.
