Arcitura Education Inc. was established as a sister corporation to SOA Systems Inc., an organization founded over ten years ago by best-selling author Thomas Erl who remains the President and CEO of both companies. Thomas is a recognized IT thought leader and maintains his status as Series Editor of the Prentice Hall Service Technology Series from Thomas Erl, as well as a member of both Education Committees that oversee Arcitura programs.

As a corporation established in 1998, SOA Systems Inc. was responsible for SOA School, which governed the widely successful SOA Certified Professional (SOACP) program. With the emergence of the Cloud Certified Professional (CCP) program in 2011 and the Big Data Science Certified Professional (BDSCP) program in 2014, Arcitura Education became a parent organization to SOA School, Cloud School and Big Data Science School, paving the way for additional programs and schools that are in development.
