Quote of the week:
"SOA is not required to take advantage of the benefits of cloud computing, but well-designed architectures will require less work for them to be cloudified. From this perspective I see SOA as an enabling technology that will accelerate migration to the cloud. Going forward, I think the dream for enterprise architects is to be able to design systems using loosely coupled SOA services on one or more clouds and to pull them into a single, unified, homogeneous application without regard or concern for whose cloud they run on."
