From the Paper:

"In accessing the adoption of SOA platforms into manufacturing companies, using SAP's NetWeaver as the barometer of early adopter success, the emerging role of SOAs as a point of key differentiation over and above just being a strategy for ERP consolidation begins to emerge. SOAs form the foundation of Web Services and Event Driven Architectures (EDAs) throughout the manufacturing companies who have already passed through the experimentation with Web Services as part of their SOA architectural plans and moved directly to piloting Web Services for such mission critical tasks."
