Maximizing SOA Returns with Enterprise Architecture
By combining Services Oriented Architectures with Enterprise Architectures, an organization can achieve increased value and cost savings through the implementation of a shared services infrastructure. Through the process of rationalizing services, duplicate services are identified and consolidated. EA Governance provides the on-going guidance to ensure that future applications will leverage shared services wherever possible. This maximizes the cost saving potential of SOA and leverages Enterprise Architecture’s improved alignment of the business to IT.
