Contemporary SOA

While primitive SOA represents service-oriented architecture as it can currently be realized, contemporary SOA is a classification that can be used to represent SOA implementations that extend the primitive model using any number of available technologies or products that further the goals associated with service-orientation.

Contemporary SOA generally represents a target state that organizations plan for and work toward, and is often dependent on the availability of sufficiently mature technology. As the industry continues to evolve, the primitive SOA model is broadened because it steadily inherits features and capabilities previously associated with contemporary SOA.

Contemporary SOA is also known as: target SOA, future state SOA, extended SOA
