3 A SERVICE ORIENTED ARCHITECTURE (SOA) IS AN ARCHITECTURE STYLE WHOSE PRINCIPLES OF MODULARIZATION OFFER A PROVEN WAY OF MANAGING THE COMPLEXITY OF SYSTEMS AND IT LANDSCAPES. SOA HAS BECOME THE MOST APPROPRIATE STYLE FOR SOLUTIONS THAT SOLVE KEY DIFFERENT BUSINESS ISSUES SUCH AS AGILITY, COST REDUCTION AND COMPLIANCY. Since SOA is being massively supported by the IT industry, SOA enabling technology will come to dominate the IT landscapes in the same way that Internet technology and client server solutions did previously. However, the real benefits of SOA will only be reached if organizations adopt SOA as an Enterprise Architecture approach and in this way bring SOA concepts into practical business solutions. SOA is a ‘lifestyle change’ and not a new technology solution that can be bought or built. This lifestyle change enables and needs alignment between business and IT, merges innovation and operation processes and blurs the old fashioned distinction between ‘buy’ or ‘build’ software. SOA is now rapidly becoming mature and it is time for organizations to get on the right track and to start making that change of lifestyle. In this whitepaper Atos Origin explains its vision on SOA and its approach to implementing and managing an SOA. It is primary written for IT managers and Enterprise Architects on the road to SOA adoption. SUMMARY

4 The concept of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) draws a lot of attention in today’s business and IT community. A Google -search on the string ‘Service Oriented Architecture’ results in more than 53 million hits today! This overwhelming amount of information makes SOA hype, but it is more than just that. We strongly believe the SOA concept is very valuable for both business and IT. At its core, SOA is a set of design principles for building business and IT systems based on shared, reusable functions called services. By assembling these services in different ways, these systems offer the flexibility and adaptability needed in today’s business world. These modularization design principles are not new, but indeed proven concepts in different generations of technology. Today these concepts are strengthened by a massive convergence of the IT technology market - based on Web services and internet technology - and adopted as part of the Enterprise Architecture approach.
