Abstract : Service-oriented architecture (SOA), a term often used today in conjunction with net-centric operations, implies that existing and future DoD information capabilities will be engineered to publish product and/or service offerings within a strategic context that allows virtually all employees and applications to readily discover and use them. SOA principles are essential to transforming traditional system-centric Defense organizations into Information Age activities that are net-centric, architecturally agile, and otherwise responsive to fast changing mission and business needs. The large-scale service-oriented architectures that DoD planners envision are designed to lower barriers to dynamic information sharing and improve content quality, quantity and propriety by leveraging the power of self-organization, self-synchronization and market forces. For these reasons, SOAs promise to help organizations deliver unprecedented value to their customers. In this paper we review a few key concepts of service-oriented architectures as fundamental enablers of net-centricity. We then examine the implications for SOAs in the new DoD global information economy and offer a few key recommendations.
