The article exposes some myths related to service-oriented architecture (SOA). It should be noted that SOA is not simply about IT but about the enterprise as a whole. The first myth is that SOAs are too expensive. But, it has been discovered that SOAs decrease costs by driving reuse and vendor agnosticism. The second myth is that there is no business case. But, in reality SOA is not technology implementation at all. Rather, it is planning and this planning is tied directly to business justification. The third myth is that Web services trumps SOA. But, in reality the use of Web Services does not constitute an SOA or deliver its benefits.
