Don Box of Microsoft was one of the first to provide a set of design guidelines referred to as his “four tenets of service-orientation” which he described primarily in relation to the Microsoft Indigo (now Windows Communication Foundation) platform that was emerging at the time. These tenets have since become fundamental design guidelines for related Microsoft-based documentation, such as the "Service Orientation and Its Role in Your Connected Systems Strategy" article that was published on MSDN.
The first publicly published research of service-orientation from an industry perspective was provided by Thomas Erl of SOA Systems Inc. who defined eight specific service-orientation principles common to all primary SOA platforms. These principles were published in “Service-Oriented Architecture: Concepts, Technology, and Design”, on the www.soaprinciples.com research site, and in the September 2005 edition of the Web Services Journal.
An article in the December 2005 edition of the IBM System Journal (by Cherbakov, Galambos, Harishankar, Kalyana, Rackham) entitled “Impact of service orientation at the business level” provided a study of how the service-orientation paradigm relates to fundamental componentization and the IBM Component Business Model (CBM). Further, in a published article entitled “SOA Simplified”, IBM Vice President for Strategy Sandy Carter emphasized the importance of service-orientation and its relevance to attaining true reuse.
Paul Allen wrote a book in which Service Orientation is defined as a paradigm, with three main components; 1) Business Architecture, 2) SOA, 3) Software Oriented Management. In his book he defines seven Service-Oriented Viewpoints (labelled SOV7).
The viewpoints do have a more high-level approach, and are not as specific and interlinked as the Service Orientation Principles of Erl. Allen uses them as starting point for stating questions during the design process.
