abstract Service oriented architectures (SOA) are becoming reality in a corporate environment. Rather than pure technology improvements SOA intends to increase manageability and sustainability of IT systems and to better align business requirements and technology implementations. Following these intentions current SOA research is focused on the management of SOA. In this paper we present a method to identify metrics for an evaluation of SOA. Therefore we adopted the goal/question/metrics method to SOA specifics. Since SOA is not limited to questions of technology we will show where SOA might be located in an enterprise architecture (EA) context. Based on the assumption that SOA follows different goals on different levels of EA abstraction, the paper shows, how these goals can be developed to metrics which can be consolidated in a measurement program.
