Today's service oriented architecture is a mainstream IT initiative that ranks among the top priorities of CIOs. SOA dramatically improves the flexibility and adaptability of new organizations by accelerating the time to market for new applications and processes, driving down IT costs by making services highly reusable and building business processes to support change.

As a result, organizations can react faster, seize new opportunities and respond more quickly to competitive threats. However, if not properly implemented, SOA can disrupt the business. Attempting SOA without the correct processes is a serious risk.

As the leader in business technology optimization (BTO), HP addresses the unique challenges of SOA across the lifecycle, from planning to inception to deployment, including those of SOA stakeholders such as service consumers, service providers and the CTO office.

HP combines an integrated solution for SOA governance, quality and management with services that take you from planning and assessment to deployment and management. This increases the efficiency, performance and operational integrity of enterprise SOA deployments.
SOA provides a number of business benefits:

  • Faster time-to-market for new applications helps organizations achieve competitive advantage by rapidly seizing new opportunities and responding to threats
  • Flexible applications create flexible business processes, making the organization more agile and adaptable in the face of changing business requirements
  • Service reuse creates greater efficiency and lowers maintenance costs

HP SOA governance offerings enable service providers, service consumers and the CTO to:

  • Gain complete visibility for discovering and understanding services
  • Improve trust between consumers and providers by increasing predictability and transparency
  • Control the lifecycle of services and effectively manage change

SOA has become a strategic imperative for organizations today. Those without a strategy for SOA risk being outpaced and outperformed by competitors who are better equipped to serve customers, seize opportunities and respond to change. But SOA brings new challenges that must be addressed and new complexity that must be managed.
