Why Certification?

Major corporations worldwide have decided upon SOA as their strategic direction for application, integration and infrastructure architecture and most recognize that realizing their SOA vision will take years and will require substantial improvement to current business and IT practices.

Though many IT architects are very knowledgeable about SOA there remains considerable confusion and inconsistency of practice and process. As a result, investments in SOA projects often spend more time and energy determining how to apply SOA concepts than delivering project results. Further the SOA expertise in many organizations is very often limited to architects. Certification is an important step in bringing wider understanding and consistency to the delivery of this important new architectural style.
