Back to the SOA future

Quote of the Week:"Another year has passed and over that year the same 15-20 people have come out and debated the relative goodness/badness of SOA and BPM. Meanwhile, all the people actually developing solutions totally ignored what we had to say and many of them laughed heartily at us as they ran past us – straight into that brick wall.

Quote of the Week:

"Another year has passed and over that year the same 15-20 people have come out and debated the relative goodness/badness of SOA and BPM. Meanwhile, all the people actually developing solutions totally ignored what we had to say and many of them laughed heartily at us as they ran past us – straight into that brick wall. Hello? McFly??? Anyone in there??? We're not here debating among ourselves for the sheer joy of it. We're debating these issues because we realize there's hundreds of millions of dollars at stake for businesses who are laboring to keep their users satisfied and don't have the ability to fully understand all the nuances of developing large-scale distributed applications in a virtualized universe.... SOA is undefined, but it's not a technology and is not a platform for developing applications, yet you'd better figure a way to get it on your resume if you want a job in IT in the 21st century."

-JP Morgenthal, "Cloud Computing was the Big News of 2009"
