Gartner leaves SOA off 'top ten' list - again

Gartner just issued its Top 10 Technology list for the year ahead, and guess what's missing? Once again, service oriented architecture got sacked by the sages of Stamford.

Gartner just issued its Top 10 Technology list for the year ahead, and guess what's missing? Once again, service oriented architecture got sacked by the sages of Stamford.

SOA proponents, however, can take cold comfort that just as was the case last year, SOA is the underpinning foundation and enabler of many of the Top 10 technologies. Cloud computing?  You need a foundation to deliver those services across firewalls. Cloud also sucks in Web oriented architecture and enterprise mashups -- prime SOA territory. Advanced analytics? They won't be so advanced if data doesn't get pulled out of organizational and system silos. Client computing? Enterprise mashups, anyone?  And, hey, where is event processing?
