Four Alternatives for Distributed SOA
Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) provides the vehicle to evolve from server-centric to network-distributed computing. But why would organizations want to do this?

From a technology perspective, it enables broad system integration, practical code reuse and speeds up application development. In other words, SOA offers a value proposition to achieve demonstrable, quantifiable competitive advantage for the organization.
