What is Service Oriented Architecture?

Posted by Gail Medley on Jun 2, 2017 10:00:00 AM

You may or may not have heard of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), but this approach is actually at the core of successfully integrating your various software systems.

A Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an architectural approach where you expose and encapsulate services in a coarse-grained manner. It helps to enable integration interaction between systems.  To put it in more basic terms, it is different services communicating with one another. 

Service Oriented Architecture makes your integration easy to build and easy to reconfigure; meaning less headaches as your organizations grows and changes. With a Service Oriented Architecture, you are able to make use of your existing tools while adding new ones that then integrate into your current environment.

PRISM INtegrator is ARES PRISM's tool that is used to integrate project controls environments using Service Oriented Architecture. PRISM INtegrator makes it easy to connect your diverse systems in order to produce richer, more meaningful data. 

Learn more about Service Oriented Architecture and integration in project controls by reading our newest white paper. You can also learn more about PRISM Integrator through this information datasheet.



New Call-to-actionWHITE PAPER: INTEGRATION IN A PROJECT CONTROLS ENVIRONMENT

In a project controls environment, integration of project, program and portfolio data is essential to make key business decisions.

This white paper explores how to effectively integrate project controls data, defines service oriented architecture and its interactions with applications and discusses the benefits that can be realized by managing programs from a central point.
