The pace of change in global business is accelerating. This creates a demand for better business intelligence and
increased flexibility, if the organization hopes to thrive in the changing business environment. To successfully meet
this challenge, business processes and the underling IT infrastructure must be aligned and flexible for enterprises to
become more adaptive.
In large organizations, such process changes can be cumbersome and the supporting IT infrastructure is typically complex
and heterogeneous. Additionally, the competitive pressures make budgeting for significant changes difficult.
SAP's Enterprise Service-Oriented architecture (enterprise SOA) is a blueprint for services-based, enterprise-scale business
solutions that offer increased levels of adaptability, flexibility, and openness. With the
SAP NetWeaver platform
as its technical foundation, enterprise SOA moves IT architectures step-by-step to dramatically higher levels of
adaptability -- and helps companies move closer to the vision of the real-time enterprise. For a complete comprehensive
