A Semantic Service Oriented Architecture (SSOA) is an architecture that allows for scalable and controlled Enterprise Application Integration solutions.[1] SSOA describes an approach to enterprise-scale IT infrastructure. It leverages rich, machine-interpretable descriptions of data, services, and processes to enable software agents to autonomously interact to perform critical mission functions. SSOA is technically founded on three notions:

  1. The principles of Service-oriented architecture (SOA);
  2. Standard Based Design (SBD); and
  3. Semantics-based computing.

SSOA combines and implements these computer science concepts into a robust, extensible architecture capable of enabling complex, powerful functions.[2]

Applications

In the health care industry, SSOA of HL7 has long been implemented[citation needed]. Other protocols include LOINC, PHIN, and HIPAA related standards. There is a series of SSOA-related ISO standards published for financial services, which can be found at the ISO's website[3],[4],.[5] Some financial sectors also adopt EMV standards to facilitate European consumers. A part of SSOA on transport and trade are in the ISO sections of 03.220.20 and 35.240.60[6],.[7] Some general guidelines of the technology and the standards in other fields are partially located at 25.040.40, 35.240.99[8],[9],.[10]
