Caro has been heavily involved building composite applications for all of its major corporate clients since the inception of the company. Essentially we have been practicing the methodology of SOA, building composite applications with loosely coupled business component based architecture, before the term even became popular with the advent of web services.
There are multiple definitions of SOA, often vendor specific to match the tools that they market, but essentially SOA is about using a set of design principles, techniques, and patterns to implement interoperable loosely coupled business aligned services. SOA is not a product but more of a guiding principle, one that Caro has been using since we started building enterprise solutions. All of those solutions have required interaction with legacy foundation solutions, web solutions, and off the shelf software solutions, giving the necessity for a service oriented approach. Now web services and vendors offering software as a service make SOA a real possibility and a much more practical approach.
Over 60% of enterprises are today using SOA as a major principle when creating or formulating enterprise solutions!
SOA defines a simple set of layers describing the interaction of services. An SOA implementation can help an enterprise respond more rapidly to changing market conditions, due to its loose coupling and plug and play nature, if it is architected and implemented properly and with the necessary discipline and tools.
Implemented incorrectly without the necessary care and attention and planning and support it can lead to an even bigger nightmare than existed before. There are significant challenges to the correct definition of an SOA and the correct implementation, not just technical but also business and organizational.
This is where Caro can help. Our highly experienced enterprise architects can work through all phases of an SOA implementation from the original concept, through design, development, implementation and monitoring. We know the technology and we also have the ability to help the organization from business process to re-engineering, organizational assessment and adoption, through the architecture to pragmatic viable solution.
