Justifying & Funding your SOA Project

Many organizations struggle to build the business case for implementing Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)–not because SOA doesn’t provide numerous benefits to the organization, but rather because they don’t properly identify the business problems in their organization that SOA would be particularly well suited to address.

This paper addresses this deficiency by delineating the most important business benefits of SOA: reduction in the cost of integration, achieving asset reuse, increasing business visibility, and achieving business agility. Implementing SOA to achieve these benefits, however, requires many capabilities that fall under the broad umbrella of SOA governance, including visibility into IT assets, change management, enforcement of best practices, measurement of effectiveness, collaboration capabilities, lifecycle management, and open standards support.
