Service-orientation continues to evolve towards a
factory approach, towards industrializing integrated platforms, such as
BI, master data management (MDM), mobile front-ends, BPM, adaptive
processes, Big Data and Cloud Computing – all of which add architectural
layers upon SOA-based infrastructure. All of these technologies can
interface via standardized data and functions, published as service
contracts, in order to avoid redundancy – that's service-orientation.
Let's take a closer look. The amount of data, which companies produce
and store tends to grow on an on-going basis. This includes structured

unstructured data (for example, from e-mails). With the rise of social
media services like twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and the emphasis on
Customer Experience Management, the amount of data and data sources has
