SOA on parade
Rather than being a futuristic concept, SOA is here now and benefitting enterprises, according to panelists at the Oracle OpenWorld conference in San Francisco on Monday.
Panelists from companies such as EDS and ING touted the benefits of SOA in enabling adapatibility in an age of global competition
"We found SOAs to be a very useful technology that allows us to capture the value of legacy systems [and] encapsulate that value in the form of services," said J.R. Jesson, CTO of applications and industry frameworks portfolio at EDS.
"We're realizing globally as we compete up the chain in the marketplace, we're providing business results to customers. We must provide that at the speed of customers," Jesson said.
