Primitive SOA

As different vendor-specific SOA platforms continue to evolve and mature, some distinguish themselves from others through proprietary technology innovation or by adopting industry technology standards prior to ratification or prior to those standards having established themselves as de facto, industry-wide standards.

When introducing SOA to an enterprise, it can be highly beneficial to define the service-oriented architectural model in such a way that it is vendor-neutral yet still in alignment with all major vendor platforms. This allows an organization to evolve its SOA implementation while diversifying it as required.

To accomplish this, it is helpful to derive a baseline service-oriented architecture that can be realized with any current vendor platform. This variation of SOA is referred to as primitive SOA.

Primitive SOA is also known as: baseline SOA, core SOA, common SOA
