SOA: The Missing Link between Enterprise Architecture and Solution Architecture
Enterprise architecture (EA) enables organizations to ensure business and IT alignment is tight through architectural guidance. Service-oriented architecture (SOA) aligns the two by establishing principles, frameworks and methods. While their objectives are similar, EA covers the architecture as a whole while SOA provides a strategy through services to tighten business and IT. Read this paper to learn about the dependencies between an EA framework and an SOA strategy and how services impact the way applications are developed. This paper discusses how to provide a link between how the business perceives solutions to achieve objectives and how IT interprets that perception. Learn how your organization can achieve a common view of how it achieves and maintains agility.
