As the adoption of SOA, Cloud, and Digital become more prevalent it is clear that many projects are highly reliant on shared infrastructure. This infrastructure must be paid for in some manner and must be accounted for across the enterprise.

This paper looks at the challenges around how to create a funding model that will pay for the shared portions of your Digital- SOA and discusses some of the pitfalls awaiting the “simple” approaches.

Intended Audience
