This paper presents an event driven service oriented architecture (EDSOA) for an agile and scalable network management system (NMS). Dynamic business requirements, interoperability with operations support systems implemented on disparate platforms, and requirements to interact with network elements using a wide range of protocols are the current market drivers in the NMS space. This has necessitated the need for an agile, flexible and loosely coupled network management framework. We propose the EDSOA approach which fulfil these requirements and also provide for a gradual evolution of the network management platform with the addition of management services as the need arises for them.
