This paper describes how to apply the concepts of a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to your existing data warehouse investment to deliver information as a service to the business. This approach allows your data warehouse to assume a more operational role within your company. It also provides a mechanism to reduce data latency and help ensure that decisions are being made on the most current and accurate information. By leveraging SOA and providing information as a service, you can broaden the reach of the
data warehouse to a much wider audience within your business, providing all applications, processes and users with the right information, in the right context, at the right time.
