Description Development of applications at enterprise level based on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) requires a comprehensive software process. While Object Oriented Analysis and Design (OOAD) is a powerful technique for modeling real world objects, it does not address several aspects of the services model. This paper discusses the difficulties in applying OOAD to services based applications and presents a Service Oriented Analysis and Design (SOAD) process that can used at enterprise level. Services at enterprise level are identified and four sub-processes to develop the different services have been presented. It also recommends a roadmap for implementation of SOA based applications at enterprise level based on the SOAD process.
