is SOA's purpose to solve integration problems, or is it more of a business transformation approach centered on implementing agile business processes?
I go back to this post - http://www.thegreylines.net/2009/01/soa-versus-soi-continued.html . Agile business processes? How exactly would you do that without bringing systems together (integration)? You would pretty much just have to have the one system. Anybody work in enterprises like that? We are not talking about moving data from point a to point b, again see previous post.
