Service oriented architecture


SAP (Systems Application and Products in Data Processing)
was founded in 1972.  It is the
recognized leader in providing collaborative business solutions for all
industry types and every major market. SAP is the largest European software
company and is headquartered in Walldorf, Germany.  It is also the third largest independent
software provider in the world and ranks after Microsoft, IBM and Oracle in
terms of market capitalization. With regard to revenue, SAP is the leading
business application and Enterprise Resource Planning solution software


Products from SAP focus on ERP, which it helped to
pioneer, and MySAP ERP is the main product of this company. Companies that want
to respond quickly to the changing business requirements require an IT
landscape that provides greater flexibility. This flexibility is delivered by
SAP through several platforms. Enterprise service-oriented architecture
(enterprise SOA) is one such platform. 
This is a blueprint for a versatile, adaptable and open IT architecture
for developing services-based enterprise-scale business solutions. With SAP
NetWeaver as a technical foundation, enterprise SOA moves IT architectures to a
high level of compliance. It also moves companies closer to the vision of
real-time enterprises. Elevating Web services to an enterprise level does this.
Enterprise service is a Web services series that is combined with business
logic that is accessible and used repeatedly to support a specific business
process. With the help of enterprise SOA and SAP NetWeaver, you can evolve a
technology that supports your business into a strategic platform. 



oriented architecture refers to the set of unique software platforms that
enable the interactions of different types of software application or even
different application users. In most large organizations, hundreds of different
business processes are carried out at the same time, some of which are
independent whereas the others are dependent on each other. Companies upgrade
their IT systems according to the newest technology available, but it is often
not possible to renew everything due to financial constraints. The best way out
for such organizations is to opt for service-oriented architecture that
provides an integrated environment, wherein different applications or users can
work together even if they are based on different computing platforms or are
using different systems.


opting for service oriented architecture, organizations can not only make the
best possible use of existing applications and systems but also save costs
related to the implementation of new systems or applications. Implementing
service-oriented architecture is supposed to be a good investment because its
benefits can be derived for many years to come. An organization that has
implemented service oriented architecture need not worry about future
technological developments because SOA is designed to accommodate both existing
applications as well as applications that are most likely to be developed in
the near future. As such, service oriented architecture acts as a type of
insurance cover, which may not provide direct cash benefits but indirectly it
does help in saving thousands of dollars.
