Service-Oriented Management Technology Landscape

Key Findings:

  • Web Services management (WSM) software is software that helps companies manage the systems and applications that underlie their Web Services.
  • Service-oriented management (SOM) software is software that supports the development and execution of a Service-oriented architecture.
  • By 2007, 60% of the total system management market will consist of large vendors who offer SOM solutions, and a full 75% of the system management market (both small and large vendors) will be SOM-enabled.
  • The market for Service-Oriented Management is expected to grow from $30 million in 2002 to $9.2 Billion by 2007.
  • Web Services Management solutions bridge the gap between the underlying systems and the Services that run on top of them.
  • Starting in mid-2004, the large system management vendors will begin to dominate the SOM space, to the extent that the SOM point solutions segment of the market will reach its maximum in 2005.
