The Cloud and SOA

| Point of View

Creating an Architecture for Today and for the Future

Reach the cloud with SOA power

The cloud is the future.�It provides almost infinite flexible and scalable external computing and processing services that not only offer significant cost benefits, but also provide the ability to connect with customers, partners and suppliers like never before.�

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), a flexible, modular approach to delivering IT services, is an essential foundation for cloud.

Organizations that do not deploy SOA and attempt to take advantage of the cloud will face a serious risk of being outperformed by their competitors who do.�

SOA addresses many of today’s challenges and provides significant advantages over current IT architecture.�SOA lowers costs and improves agility�€”allowing organizations to respond to the increasing rate of change occurring in businesses around the world.�

The question isn’t when to adopt SOA and prepare for the cloud, but how.�The answer is to prepare a roadmap to SOA and the cloud now to create competitive advantage in the future.�
