SOA enters 'Second Life'

Dave Linthicum saw Anne Thomas Manes' latest post on the "SOA is Dead" affair, and declared that it's time to move on from the 'SOA is dead' debate. "We're entering a new, and productive, era where SOA is providing its appropriate value.

Dave Linthicum saw Anne Thomas Manes' latest post on the "SOA is Dead" affair, and declared that it's time to move on from the 'SOA is dead' debate. "We're entering a new, and productive, era where SOA is providing its appropriate value." Hear, hear, well said. Anne herself said we all need SOA.

Dave reflects other views that SOA is becomig so vital and ubiquitous that it's, well, just a part of everything we do:

"We’re clearly moving into a new era where SOA is morphing into a core architectural tenant and is really fading into the seams of enterprise architecture, providing the appropriate value as what it is -- just a handy architectural pattern... We’re off in a healthy direction, so let’s not ruin that."

"Fading into the seams of EA" -- well put, and as Dave has said in the past, perhaps it will all soon be about Enterprise Architecture.
