Selling SOA economics inside of enterprises is as important as executing on SOA deployments. Both business leaders and IT leaders are learning how to begin the short- and long-term cost-benefit analysis for SOA. It's complicated, and varies from company to company.

To learn more, I recently moderated a sponsored BriefingsDirect podcast on how to make the business case for SOA. Joining me were executives from Hewlett-Packard's (HP's) Consulting and Integration Division: Terri Bennett Schoenrock, executive director of SOA services and consulting integration and J2EE open source programs, along with Andrew Pugsley, worldwide lead for SOA service development.

In the 30-minute podcast, we examine the pay-offs and opportunities from moving to SOA, ramping-up with HP's assessment processes and advacement methodologies, as well as some user-case studies on how to measure success. Podcast sponsor: HP. Have a listen and/or read a transcript of the discussion.
