Solution Overview

A constantly changing, competitive marketplace creates an overly complex IT infrastructure. To simplify it, Al-Futtaim Technologies recommends the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) - an architectural style where existing or new functionalities are grouped into atomic services. The services communicate with each other by passing data from one service to another, or by coordinating an activity between one or more services. This new architecture gives businesses the flexibility to rapidly deploy new applications in an economical manner.

To facilitate the move to Service Oriented Architecture, Al-Futtaim Technologies offers:
