Innovative service technologies are becoming valuable assets for businesses that need to stay competitive in the face of increasing globalization and market complexity. While computer processing power is becoming faster and cheaper, search engines, instant messaging, and social media channels are generating floods of information that escalate demands for consumable and accessible data.
As the world's economies engage one another through offshoring, outsourcing, and supply chaining, localization is required to accommodate different currencies and languages. Globalization, recession, invention, and communication are some of the driving forces behind a next generation of technologies and practices that revolve around software programs designed in accordance with the paradigm of service-orientation. Such programs, referred to as "services," are expected to do more for less with greater efficiency in order to meet business challenges head-on.
We have reached a stage in the evolution of service-oriented computing where modern service technology innovation is building upon mature service platforms at the same time that proven delivery techniques and design patterns are building upon an established service-orientation paradigm. These developments have made it possible to create service-oriented solutions of unprecedented sophistication.
