by EACJan 01, 2008

This paper published by EAC describes that Service oriented architectures and composite applications hold out the promise for a brave new world of applications development, deployment, and reuse that many proponents believe will usher in unprecedented levels of Return on Investment (ROI) for a domain that suffered from cost overruns, often unjustified expenditures. The ability to lower the cost of integration while improving the leveragability of key software and business process assets are few of the reasons why the ROI of service-oriented architectures and composite applications is thought to herald a new economic reality for IT and business development.
