CBDI Forum is the Everware-CBDI research capability and portal providing independent guidance on best practice in Service Oriented Architecture and engineering. Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is widely forecast to be the most profound transformation in the history of business and IT and many large enterprises and governments are now planning adoption. Undertaken correctly Service Oriented Architecture enables the highest level of convergence between business and IT, in which information solutions reflect the real requirements of the business for efficiency, standardization and adaptability. Well executed SOA will deliver radical reductions in cost and help businesses to improve their business design for growth and flexibility. However, today most enterprises and government agencies are experimenting with SOA in a tactical manner that will not scale. CBDI Forum believe it is essential for business success that structured architecture and engineering approaches are employed to ensure appropriate policy development, execution and governance.
