SOA and Business Process


As SOA Adoption matures, increasingly organizations are thinking about business process and the style of composite application development that involves a process that coordinates business services. Enterprise Systems Journal has posted an article on this topic.

In the article, the key points made are about the emergence of Business Process Applications, or BPAs which are a novel form of composite application found in the convergence of Business Process and SOA. A similar theme appeared in this article on SearchWebServices: BPM inside the belly of the SOA whale which was written earlier back in June.

These ideas are not new, however, business interest in SOA frequently centers around the idea of business processes. The maturation of SOA adoption and the available tools that use a Service Oriented approach combined with sophisticated Business Process capabilities helps to solidify this trend.
