Business wants IT to start delivering value rather than just cutting costs and wants to see more directly where their money goes. This is leading to CIOs being more business focused and an increasing demand for IT professionals who can understand how to re-orientate IT towards business goals and away from technology projects.

SOA, as a business concept rather than a set of technologies, is one of the most powerful tools that enables IT organisations to understand "what" their business does and to help the business drive IT forwards.
