Big Reasons For Big Companies to Invest in SOA
Companies Need a Flexible Architecture and a Loosely Coupled System
Companies with tightly coupled financial systems, for example, found it frustrating to adapt to new marketing programs. Companies with rigid architectures have a difficult time being able to change sometimes a very small thing with out having to involve all of the systems. Companies need a way to break up an inflexible system that was doing the company more harm than good. Now, with SOA, companies can break everything up into loosely coupled systems and attach an SOA on top of it all and be able to change things within separate systems hassle free.
Reducing Operational Costs
The biggest concern for large companies investing in an SOA is the return on investment of course. Companies have found that SOAs save them money almost as soon as they are installed.
