The Information Systems (IS) leadership in enterprises share common pervasive agility issues associated with corporate data management, such as providing access when and where needed, data validation and integrity issues, analyzing data housed in disparate systems, and reporting consolidated data to applicable parties. To address these problems some organizations are employing Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) as a paradigm, which is enhanced by the use of web services, to provide a lightweight means of leveraging resources. The Federal Financial Institutions Examinations Council (FFIEC) is one such organization and we use the traditional systems analysis and design (SAD) approach to frame how the FFIEC employed SOA as a new paradigm of conducting business with web services. We provide lessons learned that are concerned with initiating SOA with web services in order to achieve an agile information supply chain.
