ZDNet's Chris Jablonski cites a new Gartner report (accessible to paying clients only) that predicts that 40% of all development investments among small to medium-size businesses will be going to SOA (service-oriented architecture) or SOBA (service-oriented business applications) within the next five years.
Gartner's tangled alphabet soup aside (SOA vs. SOBA vs. SODA, or "service-oriented development of applications"), the consultancy predicts that in many organizations, business analysts -- not programmers -- will be assembling pre-built application components to configure business processes.
In other words, more automation and less manual intervention in the application development process, just as we're now applying to customer service, production, shipping, and all other aspects of the enterprise.
