Every Military Service is establishing an ERP

  • Legacy systems are transitioned over time
  • ERPs need to interface with multiple Legacy systems and untold future systems
  • Service Oriented Architecture enables interfaces

Benefits of SOA

Short-term benefits of implementation:

  • Enhances reliability
  • Reduces hardware acquisition costs
  • Leverages existing development skills
  • Accelerates movement to standards-based server and application consolidation
  • Provides a data bridge between incompatible technologies

Long-term benefits of implementation:

  • Provides the ability to build composite applications
  • Creates a self-healing infrastructure that reduces management costs
  • Provides truly real-time decision-making applications
  • Enables the compilation of a unified taxonomy of information across an enterprise and its customer and partners

Benefits of ERPs

ERP software attempts to integrate business processes across departments onto a single enterprise-wide information system.

Major benefits of ERP:

  • Improved coordination across functional departments
  • Increased efficiencies of doing business

Implementing ERP systems nurture:

  • Establishment of backbone data warehouses
  • Offer better accessibility to data
  • Management has up-to-the-minute access to information for decision making
  • Track actual costs of activities
  • Perform activity based costing



SOAs offer the following advantages over traditional approaches to distributed computing:

Offers business services across the platforms

Provides location independence

Services need not be at a particular system or particular network

Completely loosely coupled approach

Authentication and authorization support at every level

The search and connectivity to other services is dynamic




The DOD EMALL example demonstrates that SOA:

  • Leverages existing investments in technology
  • Provides the ability to more quickly meet customer demands
  • Lower costs associated with the acquisition and maintenance of technology
  • Management of business functionality closer to the business units
