LAP Lambert Academic Publishing This book presents a proposed University Management Information System (UMIS) and Learning Management System (LMS) components based on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) that has achieved information system and pedagogical success based on the presented evaluation framework that utilizes information system, pedagogical, and managerial aspects of systems. SOA as a design pattern addresses nonfunctional requirements like interoperability and integration to achieve systems agility. SOA provides fine granularity and modularity that solve many integration problems, but adds complexity to systems design. SOA is a design pattern that helped enterprises overcome integration obstacles, and gain agile and interoperable advantages within architectures. SOA utilizes Web services as main enabler to achieve addressed design goals.
