Key Findings:

  • Today’s professional services firms are struggling to find their long-term value proposition in environments that are in constant change. There is a significant opportunity for PSOs in the short-term for helping companies implement and adopt SOAs, and in the long-term for providing critical business process expertise.
  • As Service-oriented process tools mature, system integration will no longer be a separate activity, but will be subsumed into the process orchestration and choreography activities within the Service-oriented process tools.
  • The business process design, optimization, and execution consulting market will come to displace the system integration market.
  • System integrators will find the low-level integration work diminishing as their customers adopt SOAs, and therefore will need to transition their skills to the Service-oriented process arena to avoid having their market erode substantially.
  • There is a significant opportunity for consulting firms in the next five years for helping companies implement and adopt SOAs, and in the long-term for providing critical business process expertise.
  • Total SOA architectural and process consulting revenues will surpass those from system integration by 2006.
  • System integration revenue by professional services organizations will decrease by over 70% by 2010, while Service-Oriented Business Process consulting will increase 20-fold in the same time period.
