At an "IBM SOA Executive Summit" attended by hundreds of customers from across Europe, IBM announced that its comprehensive resource to find reusable IT services based on IBM and IBM Business Partner software is now available. The IBM SOA Business Catalog allows customers to search for information on service oriented architecture (SOA) assets or IT "services," combinations of software code, intellectual property and best practices, used to solve specific business problems. Recent studies have shown that reusing existing assets can help build an SOA up to five times faster.

By the end of the year, IBM's SOA Business Catalog is expected to include more than 3,000 SOA assets spanning more than 15 industries to solve specific business problems. The Catalog directs customers to the appropriate IBM or qualified IBM Business Partner software including process templates, web services, tools and adapters along with details on how customers can easily obtain and integrate these IT services into existing IT infrastructures.
