Extending the Business Value of SOA through Business Process Management

Extending the Business Value of SOA through Business Process Management

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and business process management (BPM) promise to create new value from existing investments, reuse efforts across many projects, and achieve new levels of agility and flexibility. The two are often confused, however, and described interchangeably because they confer similar benefits. Organizations that fail to realize the differences between these two initiatives are often unable to achieve optimal performance from their architecture.

This white paper discusses the relationship between SOA and BPM. Discover the impact BPM has on SOA and the reverse. Explore the basics of BPM and SOA, their respective features and benefits, and the value added by putting them together. Learn how these two initiatives can be used to eliminate the inefficiencies and errors associated with crossing functional, organizational and geographic boundaries within an organization.
