Even though its concepts have been around for a while, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) has recently gained strong momentum in the industry. SOA is a disciplined approach to manage the lifecycle of IT services to ensure their delivery in alignment with business strategies. It fundamentally changes the way organizations respond to changing business needs through innovation in modular architecture and service engineering practices. HP now offers a training curriculum that helps customers understand, plan, and implement SOA in their organizations.
HP provides a wide array of products and services that help customers to successfully establish and implement a service Oriented Architecture in their enterprise.
Successful SOA is not a result of technology awareness, but getting the right architecture to meet the business needs, and the application of the architecture in projects, processes and organizations together with appropriate governance.
