The movement to Service Orientation is heralding an era of enterprise computing based on open standards, Service-oriented Architecture, and optimized business processes. This signifies a fundamental shift from today’s rigid and inflexible systems towards loosely-coupled approaches to application development and deployment. This new shift requires a redefinition of the concept of business functionality in a way that marries continually changing capabilities with new requirements for usability and flexibility. The aim is a new capacity for achieving competitive advantage, lower cost, and increased business value.
