Free flow of Information
In use of large applications there is information silos, where information cannot be shared between different applications/software’s. Integrating systems can solve this problem of information silos, but integrating systems often involve a huge cost. Service Orientated Architecture provides free flow of information, where different applications and systems can share and exchange information.. This saves integration cost.
