SOA appliances have matured considerably over the last few years. As they have established themselves more firmly in the SOA landscape, vendors have developed a better understanding of requirements, resulting in a level of commonality in some of the key underlying functions such as providing a secure gateway for accessing SOA services. However, technology never stays still, and recent years have seen a broadening of the SOA mission and the introduction of new use-cases to drive maximum value from corporate SOA investments. SOA services are being opened up to mobile and cloud applications as well as B2B trading partner usage, and the growing trend of exposing corporate APIs for third party application development is driving increasing levels of SOA activity.
