Enterprise Service-oriented Architecture
Enterprise Service-oriented Architecture (ESOA) is a blueprint for an adaptable, flexible and open IT architecture for developing services-based, enterprise-scale business solutions. An enterprise service is typically a series of web services combined with business logic that can be accessed and used repeatedly to support a particular business process. Aggregating web services into business-level enterprise services provides a more meaningful foundation for the task of automating enterprise-scale business scenarios. Enterprise SOA moves IT architectures to higher levels of adaptability — and moves companies closer to the vision of real-time enterprises by elevating web services to an enterprise level.

Deloitte uses the SAP NetWeaver platform to transform the way organizations support their business processes — providing a comprehensive and integrated platform designed from the ground up to work with SAP solutions and other standard technologies. But understanding when, where and how to deploy SAP NetWeaver components to generate the most business value requires a comprehensive understanding of a company’s business processes and organizational structure — along with in-depth knowledge of various technology practices. Deloitte combines all of these elements to create a state-of-the-art SAP NetWeaver platform that addresses companies’ most pressing business issues.

Deloitte’s methods and tools help our clients to quickly establish the SAP ESOA foundation that they need and evaluate where to effectively apply ESOA. Our Roadmapping framework uses a set of time-tested and client-tested methods and tools, including:

  • SOA Abstraction Model – Visualizes the “touch-point” between business and IT required for an effective SOA implementation. Both worlds are connected through the abstraction layer allowing collaboration while at the same time promoting a high degree of organizational agility.
  • SOA Maturity Model – Facilitates the evaluation and planning of an SOA implementation throughout the different domains within an organization.
  • Enterprise Value Delivery (EVD) Methodology – Mapping ESOA to Deloitte’s Enterprise Value Delivery Model allows for the use of time-tested and client-tested methodologies and techniques to help structure and design an ESOA implementation across the lifecycle phases.
