Is SOA preventing BPM business success?

March 19th, 2010 | 2 Comments | Posted in SOA

Yesterday I attended a presentation on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and found one statement very striking: Only 20% of SOA components are being reused.

From a business perspective, SOA is supposed to help companies save money and resources, as components are created once and can be then reused. As such it makes sense to implement SOA first before orchestrating processes.

Above statement however implies that many companies are missing out on efficiency and performance improvements, since BPM is postponed for the sake of SOA, which fails to materialize its benefits!

From a technical perspective it is nicer to get things neatly in place, but for the business this means missing out on the BPM and SOA benefits for years instead of getting real tangible BPM benefits within months.
