Mohd Hasan Selamat, Abdulmonem Al Kharusi


Vol. 9  No. 5  pp. 301-308


The adoption of SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) has gained momentum in the past few years, and the predictions are for further rapid uptake of SOA and Web Services. This was mainly driven by high demand in business agility, business process efficiency and cost optimization. The obsolete legacy systems are interfering with these key business success factors, making it unnecessarily difficult to implement university-wide best practices. Web services built on SOA promise to integrate systems seamlessly, while also offering campus stakeholders easily customizable solutions and real-time information from a “single source of truth.” SOA trends could be predicted from different aspects including business, research areas technology and standards. This paper focuses on SOA trends with respect to three important service orientation quality factors namely interoperability, performance and security. These factors are highly impacting the SOA trends in all aspects. The analysis, examples and discussion provided in the paper are primarily focus on SOA adoption in the Education sector.
