Building a More Agile Business with Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)

December 5, 2006 – Toronto, Ontario

A service-oriented architecture (SOA) is a higher level of application development that enables IT to focus on business processes, rather than the underlying IT infrastructure. Its promise is a more efficient business organization that is better able to adapt and respond to changing market opportunities and demands.

There are already many examples of organizations reaping the benefits of reduced complexity, integration of new and legacy applications, and reduced maintenance costs.

The session explored how service-driven enterprises are experiencing the benefits of SOA as they leverage IT in the rapid development and reliable delivery of new and enhanced services.
