SOA Reference Architecture

 

 

A Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) facilitates the creation of flexible, re-usable assets for enabling end-to-end business solutions. Increasingly, companies are adopting the principles and techniques associated with SOA for different types of projects in different industries worldwide.

 

The use of the SOA Reference Architecture (SOA RA) is a key enabler for the achievement of the value propositions of an SOA.

 

This specification presents an SOA RA, which provides guidelines and options for making architectural, design, and implementation decisions in the implementation of solutions. The goal of this SOA RA is to provide a blueprint for creating or evaluating architecture.
