    8/24/2007
    "Companies face incredible pressure in global markets. To survive in such an atmosphere, companies need to develop a competitive advantage and build a sustainable business by accelerating innovation, developing operational excellence, and empowering information workers. Business processes are the key to unlocking the potential of these strategies for competitive differentiation. Enterprise services-oriented architecture (enterprise SOA) allows you to quickly build and modify your business processes to adapt to rapidly changing markets. With enterprise SOA, you can link stand-alone processes to quickly compose new end-to-end processes, selectively redesign existing processes, and facilitate seamless process design and execution across company boundaries to take advantage of your business partners. Enterprise SOA unleashes the untapped potential of your existing business processes within and across company boundaries so you are better able to compete."
