Abstract
Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) gain an increasing focus in the academic literature as well as in practice. According to Forrester Research at least 63% of the North-American, European and Asian-Pacific enterprises have adopted SOA by the end of 2008 (Heffner 2008). However, there is still a lack of a coherent picture of why firms adopt SOA. As Vitharana et al. point out "future research should investigate organizational and industry characteristics that influence adoption of the service paradigm" (2007). Thus, the aim of this research is to investigate different proposed drivers of SOA adoption, such as technological advantages such as reduced costs due to modularity and reuse, business advantages such as increased business flexibility, or environmental determinants, such as management fashion.
