As organizations modernize their IT foundations, improve mission effectiveness, and try to reduce costs, Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is emerging as a powerful tool for changing how services are delivered. SOA evolves the application, allowing it to exist within a highly dynamic and fluid marketplace of services. Weather instituting enterprise-wide solutions or developing project level applications; UrsaNav uses a business-centric IT architectural approach that supports integrating your business as linked, repeatable business tasks, or services. With our SOA approach, you can find value at every stage of the SOA continuum. Through SOA we provide the set of protocols by which Services can be published, discovered and used in a technology neutral, standard form. This allows enterprise-wide systems (such as Financial, Acquisition and Inventory Control Systems) to work together seamlessly across different products, environments and technologies.
