BANGALORE: India is not considered a market when it comes to SOA. Consultants of SOA are bundling their services and moving to other countries like U.S.A where it is growing exponentially. The reason behind this is lack of awareness, in spite of evangelist initiatives and seminars conducted across the country by IBM, BEA and SAP-TCS, is proving to be a downer.

However it is expected that in India, the SOA boom is expected to hit only after two years. For an implementation that cost $1 million, Pfizer saved $10 million a year thanks to SOA, claimed Suresh Pande, Vice-President, GalaxE Solutions India. Such return on investment could be replicated across verticals, depending on the implementation, he said.

Auto giants could use this in their B2B (business to business) dealings with their vendors. Financial services are also expected to adopt SOA, but the healthcare industry is not mature enough for this revolution, he added.

Pande said, “As we integrate with global markets, the pace of change will become more rapid. Availability of skilled SOA consultants will also dictate the adoption of SOA.”

Small and medium businesses are also expected to adopt SOA by 2008 as they duplicate strategies of larger firms. The U.S.-based consulting firm, GalaxE Solutions is increasing its headcount from 300 to 500 globally and 125 to 300 in India over the next 12 months.

"Our Indian center will contribute to 70 percent of deployments of next-generation IT architecture," he said.
