The Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) strategy allows businesses and
organizations to offer their products and services to customers and
trading partners using a standards-based integration protocol. Web
Services depends on SOA for delivery. SOA uses Extensible Markup

integration is loosely coupled, thus simplifying integration.
