The company is structured into Business Units (BU’s), which now function as independent profit/cost centers. The SOA cell would work closely with each BU to ensure the availability of a large pool of highly skilled SOA implementation experts.
The skill-sets of the personnel in each BU, working on SOA projects could broadly be classified into the areas of XML & related technologies, SOAP (its characteristics and linkages with WSDL), ESB technology and Orchestration languages.

About SOA and OSS:
SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) provides patterns for design, development, deployment and management of a loosely coupled business application infrastructure. In this framework, business functionality is published, discovered, and consumed as part of a business ecosystem of network-aware and reusable technical and business services.
OSS (Open Source Software) is software for which the underlying programming code is available to the users so that they may read it, make changes to it, and build new versions of the software incorporating their changes.
