The company has developed four new products, along with 23 enhanced products and 11 new professional services offerings, based on its experiences with customers and business partners.
SOA is the catch-all phrase for developing services around business processes using existing assets, but with none of the underlying architectures being visible to users.
IBM explained that the new software and services focus on four key areas: business process management; governance; adapting IT infrastructure; and creating industry-specialised services.
"SOA is a fundamental shift in technology that will continue to significantly impact businesses," said Steve Mills, senior vice president at IBM Software Group.
Big Blue's existing SOA customers are looking to move beyond their basic investments, which Mills describes in terms of the amount of money a poker player can use in a single hand, known as the 'table stake'.
"With the early adopter phase behind us, and SOA software capabilities deemed as 'table stakes', the next logical evolution in this market will be ensuring that customers have the resources and skills available to make the most of their SOA investments," he said.
IBM has also released the results of a survey of customers which have undertaken SOA projects.
Some 92 per cent of those surveyed had embraced SOA to reduce costs, and 51 per cent said that the projects had resulted in cost savings.
