Survey: Six Out of Ten U.K .Organizations Not Ready for SOA

    Online News published in DMReview.com
November 7, 2005

A survey from Capgemini UK plc shows that around two-thirds of U.K. organizations have not adopted SOA and have no plans to increase online collaboration.

Around two-thirds (64 percent) of U.K. organizations have not adopted the concepts of service-oriented architecture (SOA), despite the surge in interest. Similarly 58 percent of U.K. companies have no plans to increase collaboration between themselves, their customers, their suppliers and other trading partners to benefit from the advantages of SOA.

Conversely, a similar survey by Capgemini in the United States last month found that 82 percent of surveyed firms from the U.S. and Europe plan on taking advantage of SOA.

"The difficulties of business and IT effectively working together are well documented but this is particularly challenging when new technological approaches emerge," said James Greaves, a director of SOA Solutions at Capgemini. "With SOA, a further risk is present: without a positive stance organizations may find that the hundreds of applications today become the thousands of services of tomorrow, with TCO and risk spiralling out of control."

The survey of 200 IT professionals, carried out by Capgemini UK plc at the UK Oracle User Group 2005 Conference & Exhibition, also found that there is optimism on IT budgets for 2006. About 84 percent of organizations believe they will spend at least the same, if not more, on IT next year compared to 2005.
