CORBA comparison with distributed computing architectures?

Distributed computing consisting of Service Provider and Service User
The basic idea centers around a software component that provides some service:
  1. data retrieval,
  2. calculations,
  3. hotel reservation,
  4. service management metrics,
  5. supply chain,
  6. mobile payment
There are also other software components that wish to make use of the provider's services.
Distributed computing allows the two components, provider and user to communicate across a network.
