The article offers information on Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), which allows companies to weave applications and processes together in a flexible way. SOA not only simplifies the process of developing, managing, deploying and sharing automated service through an open information technology (IT) architecture, it also helps in changing applications for them to respond quickly and effectively to evolving business and market requirements. SOA's ability to simplify application development and maintenance comes from its interchangeable reusable parts, standard containers and open interfaces. Moreover, the author tackles the difference between web services and SOA as well as the challenges in implementing SOA.
