Thus the proper way to talk about SOA implementation is the kinds of implementation choices that result from adopting the style.Also discuss how SOA adoption is the iterative pursuit of a continuum. There are things you can do to tend towards the style without doing it all.Infrastructure investment (and investment strategy) depends on where you are on the continuum. Each step also introduces additional governance issues, skills needs, risks, etc.*SOA is not web services, but web services can be an effective means of implementing an SOASOA is not about classes of tools, though tools can be useful as part of an implementation strategySOA is not going to tell you who provisions what, where to outsource, what to share</p><p>*SOA is not web services, but web services can be an effective means of implementing an SOASOA is not about classes of tools, though tools can be useful as part of an implementation strategySOA is not going to tell you who provisions what, where to outsource, what to share</p><p>*SOA is not web services, but web services can be an effective means of implementing an SOASOA is not about classes of tools, though tools can be useful as part of an implementation strategySOA is not going to tell you who provisions what, where to outsource, what to share</p><p>*SOA is not web services, but web services can be an effective means of implementing an SOASOA is not about classes of tools, though tools can be useful as part of an implementation strategySOA is not going to tell you who provisions what, where to outsource, what to share</p></li></ul>
