Relative dependency and modularity should be determined in the business model and applied to the business processes. But as the portfolio is more widely based on service interfaces that make the underlying applications more transparent there will be many opportunities to componentize at all levels of the architecture with considerable benefits of increased agility and reduction in cost. providing the loose coupling has been properly implemented and there are no design or platform dependencies established by the service consumer or provider.

Standardization is a business matter and relates to how an enterprise manages its business processes.Principles of SOA      Standardization is something that is just not talked about by many people. A small amount of work to generalize a service specification can allow the service to support many different contexts. provides a high level of transparency of the underlying resources. services and components. Modularity is a concept that can be implemented at many levels in an SOA. In the early stages an architect should be looking to reduce dependency so that the horizon of change can be predicable. Forget reuse. . not because IT desires reuse. or to allow support for future business change within minimal or no effort. Standardization is required because the business demands consistency. with or without web services. Composability is again a hugely powerful technique that takes advantage of the fractal nature of SOA that allows hierarchies or assemblies to be constructed based on more common. for example product. The virtualization then provides opportunities for the provider and consumer to act independently and to have different life and upgrade cycles with consequent increased agility and response to change. Virtualization is an important part of the SOA. this is a programmers view of the world. The basic service concept.
