SOA is an architectural style that has recently come to prominence. The Open Group has a long history of providing support for enterprise architects, notably through ongoing development and maintenance of TOGAF. The whitepaper serves as a framework for the SOA Working Group's future agenda and is available for free download here: http://www.opengroup.org/bookstore/catalog/w074.htm.

"The SOA Working Group brings the industry's best and brightest SOA practitioners together and provides organizations with a vendor and technology-neutral setting to achieve key SOA consensus," said Dr. Christopher J. Harding, forum director for SOA and Semantic Interoperability at The Open Group. "This whitepaper is a great resource for individuals who are currently using SOA or planning to incorporate it into their organizations. We look forward to continuing our work to raise awareness of what's possible with SOA."
