Public Service at a Tipping Point: Enterprise SOA Platforms lay the foundation for integrated services

The capabilities to deliver SOA systems and applications are here, and so is the funding: federal support for many public-service technologies—in some cases funded at 90 percent, and often at 100 percent. If your IT infrastructure supports any or all of the related federal programs, the funding sources are flexible enough for you to use that funding to implement enterprise-wide solutions while minimizing the outlay of budget-compressed state dollars. There may never be a better time than now to start an IT legacy renewal campaign by implementing a modern enterprise architecture.
