IT Service architecture, or Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), is a software approach that operates current services and applications to equip value to users. In designing software systems for software development, architecture refers to the fundamental structures developers. The architecture for service-oriented systems permits the systems applications to create usage of other available services within the network because designers operate existing services to develop their applications, to create unique applications users can reuse the service. Moreover, this type of design approach services is independent of one another. This helps them to make their work easier to update and modify without interrupting the functionality of other services.
Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) often needs high upfront costs, but the functionality of the system can make it attractive in a variety of contexts. Another important benefit of service architecture is it allows to create complex applications using services from other platforms, its independent of both platforms and vendors, creating it available for anyone to operate.

Elements of Service Architecture

The service architecture consists of various crucial components, such as:

  • ➤ Application interface
  • ➤ Services
    •     1. Business Services
    •     2. Infrastructure Services
  • ➤ Security
  • ➤ Process layer
  • ➤ Management
  • ➤ Business activity monitoring
  • ➤ Operational data score
  • ➤ Stakeholders
