Why Read This Report

Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is mainstream: 75% percent of respondents from Global 2000 enterprises say their company will be using SOA by the end of 2009. However, across both enterprises and SMBs, 20% of SOA users are struggling enough with achieving the benefits that they are holding off on expanding its use. A recent Forrester survey demonstrates that SOA governance is the key to addressing these struggles. If you're struggling to achieve SOA benefits, starting or expanding your SOA governance is bound to help — but be aware that it takes more than just a little bit of SOA governance to make an impact.
