SOA popularity will keep growing, says Gartner

Service-oriented architecture (SOA) will be used in more than half of new mission-critical operational applications and business processes designed this year and in more than 80% by 2010, according to analyst firm Gartner.

SOA has dramatically grown in popularity, but the number of failed projects has also grown as organisations have discovered that SOA benefits have a cost and the challenges associated with its adoption have consequently become more apparent, said Gartner.

“New software products for SOA have hit the market but, given their immaturity, have disappointed users in terms of reliability, performance and productivity,” said Frank Kenney, research director for Gartner.
“SOA principles have been applied too rigidly, and this has led to unsatisfactory outcomes as projects became too costly and did not meet deadlines.”
