SOA can help companies solving immediate business problems such as connecting to business partners, accessing legacy applications, and integrating across technology boundaries. However at a more strategic level, SOA is about creating an IT environment to support continuous business optimization. SOA can better align IT with business, but at the same time can stimulate business to start thinking about business processes and optimizing them.
In this session we will show how enterprises can use BPM together with SOA to become more flexible, more agile, more competitive, and to gradually transform into process-driven enterprise. We will also discuss the changing role of IT, which can (and should) become the innovator and the driver of changes.
