SOA organizes business software in a granular fashion so that common functions can be used interchangeably by different departments internally and by external business partners. The more granular the components (the more pieces), the more they can be reused. SOA is a way of thinking about IT assets as service components. When functions in a large application are made into stand-alone services that can be accessed separately, they are beneficial to several parties. SOAs are implemented via application programming interfaces (APIs) that allow components to communicate with each other.
