Let's Design On-Demand Business Model
Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an architectural approach that can be shared and reused. The book proposes a service-based architecture approach to design an adaptive business model for small enterprises. It presents an ad-hoc model which is based on five layered SOA architecture that can integrate all activities comprising Supply Chain Management (SCM), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Technical and Enterprise applications tools, and hence, it best suits the SME requirements. This book covers the challenges that SMEs face to compete with large enterprises. It also compares the proposed model with traditional ERP systems and other similar approaches. It is found that the SOA model is efficient, cost-effective, and competent with similar existing solutions. There is always a need to know the scope and size of the work involved while developing a service or deriving any application from service-based model; this book will help in determining the cost and effort for such projects.
