Systems integration will continue to represent the best market opportunity for service providers throughout the five-year forecast period. In addition, a recent IDC study of end-users reveals that transportation/distribution, utilities, manufacturing, services, and financials are the major adopters of SOA in the United States.
Regionally, the Americas will host the majority of external services spending on SOA, with the United States leading the market. EMEA represents the second largest region in terms of spending; however, the Asia/Pacific region is expected to experience a more rapid growth rate than both the Americas and EMEA, mainly due to its current small base level.
The study, "Worldwide SOA-Based Services 2006-2010 Forecast: Demand for Services Continues as Adoption Expands Across Industries and Geographies" (IDC #35072), examines the market dynamics, growth, and opportunities for standards-based SOA-driven services on a worldwide basis, providing a forecast for 2006-2010. The forecast and analysis covers the worldwide marketplace, individual regions, and services segments. The study also provides essential guidance for services vendors.

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.
