Fifty three percent of companies survyed had active SOA projects by the end of 2007.

In 2007 companies forked over $1.4 million adopting service-oriented architecture (SOA), according to a report released by AMR Research.

The primary driver for SOA investments were made to meet the need to change investments faster, cheaper, and with less risk according to 22% of those survey. Eighteen percent used SOA to meet requirements of individual projects, while 17% looked to SOA to reduce IT costs through reuse.

The survey found that SOA adoption is broad based and growing rapidly -- China, Germany, and the U.S. all showed adoption growth rates of over 100%.
