Aetna Dumps Its Siloed Enterprise Architecture for SOA CIO.com | Cooper Mann Consulting Group

Moving from a “traditional” ERP solution to a more Service Oriented Architecture in the enterprise represents a change in how applications, functionality, and services are provided to the user.  Rather than allowing for business units to establish information silos which may only tangentially connect to other parts of the organization, SOA seeks to provide users throughout the enterprise with the resources they need to get their jobs done, and in a context that supports those processes specifically.  The underlying framework provides the controlled sharing and re-use of information more efficiently while yielding more strategic results.
