What is a Service Oriented Architecture?

Service oriented architecture (SOA) is an architectural concept in software that defines the use of services to support business goals. In a SOA, resources are made available as independent services via the Internet or an intranet. The overall goal of a SOA is to have loose coupling (see definition below) among interacting pieces of software. This is in contrast to the concept of object oriented programming, in which data and processors are bound together.

To put it less abstractly, SOAs aim to separate the service from the data input. As an example, consider the service of playing a specific DVD, say Starwars. Any DVD player can play Starwars, which means that the service of playing a DVD is not attached to the specific DVD to be played. We can say that the Starwars DVD is loosely coupled with DVD players. In contrast, if the system mirrored object oriented programming, then every Starwars DVD would come with a specific DVD player, and would not be intended to function on a different player.

What are the benefits of a SOA?

Service oriented architectures have several benefits. Three of the top ones include: Higher ROIs on software creation: Services within SOAs are created in layers separate from their applications. This means that, as businesses evolve, software services can be reused, adapted, or combined rather than having to be created from scratch.

Support for multiple client types:

Because SOAs are designed to interact with diverse systems, they provide support for multiple client types. This means that a business can pick and choose the best products for an application without having to worry about interoperability across existing services.

Better Maintainability:

Because SOAs are designed to interact with diverse systems, they provide support for multiple client types. This means that a business can pick and choose the best products for an application without having to worry about interoperability across existing services.
