Two or more SOA services may be connected together to create a new business process, such as in the case of a mashup.
Business users can visually assemble mashups by blending publicly available information and services with a company's internal information and services.
Syndication of site content is enabled through the use of SOA, since it involves standardized protocols, which permit end-users to make use of a site's data in another context.
The community that uses the SOA services can employ community mechanisms on the application, such as ratings and comments, to provide feedback so the application can be E.

Tasks can be rearranged without impact to the user.
Business rules can be dynamically stopped at runtime.
New services can be built at runtime without any special tooling.
Business processes can be automated so they do not require feedback.
They establish a Center of Excellence (CoE) to monitor and report on the SOA services performance.
They contact a third party to analyze and evaluate the new processes against the business objectives.
They set and monitor Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to track performance against the business objectives.
They model the new processes in a business model simulator to identify bottlenecks and potential performance issues.
The company wanted development and operations to be as simple as possible.
The company wanted to break down department silos and encourage everyone to use the same set of tools.
Most of the company's processes were manual or document-centric with little opportunity for automation.
The legacy system had grown in such a way that it was not easy to update and could not handle the emerging business demands.
