Paul Calahan from NetManage, Inc. has written an interesting article in eWeek.com: 10 mistakes companies make when implementing SOA projects, and how to avoid them.

What Paul actually advocates is: Think before you act! In the context of SOA this means that a company should realize that a SOA implementation really is a business issue. You realize such SOA architecture, because you want either to lower your operational business process costs, or to decrease significantly your time to market, or to do both! SOA should not be handled different from all Information and Computer Technology (ICT) decisions. Therefore it should be handled like all business investments. SOA needs:

  • A business sponsor;
  • A business investment proposal (benefits and Return On Investment (ROI) time;
  • Assessed business risks.
