When can we implement SOA to a system or what are the requirements that are needed to make a system SOA compliant.
In order to efficiently use a SOA, one must meet the following requirements:
- Interoperability between different systems and programming languages provides the basis for integration between applications on different platforms through a communication protocol. One example of such communication is based on the concept of messages. Using messages across defined message channels decreases the complexity of the end application, thereby allowing the developer of the application to focus on true application functionality instead of the intricate needs of a communication protocol.
- Desire to create a federation of resources. Establish and maintain data flow to a federated data warehouse. This allows new functionality developed to reference a common business format for each data element.
