1. Market Size & Forecast
Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an architectural approach that enables IT to
integrate, interoperate, and manage software, data, and processes across all types of
applications. Resources in an SOA environment are made available as independent services
that can be accessed without the knowledge of underlying platform implementation. With
this approach, new applications can be built from existing functionality to support the
requirements of software users, and services can be assembled and reassembled quickly to
create new applications to meet business needs.
SOA infrastructure technologies include solutions for Business Process Management (BPM),
metadata management, Business Activity Management (BAM) and policy and
registry/repository functionality. It also include middleware such as application servers,
legacy transaction processing platforms, Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), message-oriented
middleware and integration suites.
According to TechNavio, the market for SOA Infrastructure in the Communications industry
is forecast to reach $2,533.9 million by 2012 from $1,246.0 million in 2008; growing at a
CAGR of 19.4 percent over the forecast period (Exhibit 1.1).

Communication Service Providers (CSPs) today are facing several challenges such as
increasing competition from Internet service providers, proliferation of convergent services
and increased costs due duplication of application silos and other resources. In addition,
increasing customer demand for new flexible services, regulatory compliance and the need
for increased security is driving telecom organizations to adopt SOA to enable faster
creation of new services without sacrificing the uptime of the underlying network. Further,
CSPs are beginning to adopt SOA infrastructure to introduce IT governance with their IT

environment and enable sharing of underlying applications and resources as „services‟ with
other service providers, and hence reduce costs and the time-to-market new services.
The use of SOA infrastructure offers many benefits for the communications industry. These
enable providers to:

     Achieve a homogeneous environment that spans time-sensitive and traditional IT
       services

     Accelerate service creation and delivery
     Hide the complexity and heterogeneity of underlying networks
     Support multi-vendor, multi-technology middleware platforms
     Open network platform capabilities to third parties
     Expose the underlying value of the network to IT applications while allowing the
       network to access IT services

     Simplify   the   use   of   services     and     devices       through
