SAIC – SOA Case Study: The Navy/Marine Corps Intranet

Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) is a well-known, established, and respected systems integrator and professional services firm that services many of the largest corporations and government agencies. With over $6 Billion in revenue, the company is now looking to Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) to help further their integration practice around legacy enablement, application consolidation, and improving the economics of IT for their customers.

In this ZapNote, Zapthink analyzes an SOA approach that SAIC is adopting for proposed use in migrating thousands of applications made apparent by ongoing implementation of the Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI). The NMCI project is of a significant magnitude, and represents new territory for architectural approaches such as SOA. It is clear that if SAIC can satisfy NMCI’s need for legacy migration, then SOA is a viable approach for complex environments such as these.
