Impacts of Service-oriented Architecture Transformation on Organizational Structures

Ihsan Birekul and Ozgur Dogerlioglu

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is being used by organizations for becoming more agile and flexible in order to adapt dynamically changing business environments. The main objective of this study was to determine impacts of SOA on enterprise systems. The research model is designed to find out the necessary changes in organization structure for a successful SOA transformation. Information system (IS) professionals from 34 organizations in Europe answered the questionnaire. The research indicates that enterprise level SOA transformations consider service reuse as the main reason to start this transformation. The findings show that while enterprise level transformations value collaboration as important, departmental level transformations do not attach importance to collaboration as a success factor. According to results, 85% of the organizations in the sample made changes in their Information Systems (IS) funding model for SOA transformation.
