2009-01-06 Tuesday - SOA Debate

Anne Thomas Manes: SOA is Dead; Long Live Services

Debate: Is SOA Dead?

Linthicum weighs in...

Mike Kavis: Did SOA die or do we just suck at architecture?

Doug Barry: (The Acronym) SOA is (Perhaps) Dead (at Some Companies); Long Live Services

Miko Matsumura, of Whatever-you-want-to-call-it Center? SOA is Dead, long live Whatever!

From January 2005, I found this gem in the comments on John Reynold's blog:
"I've decided that saying "Service-Oriented Architecture" is like saying "Food-Oriented Lunch" -- it sure sounds good when you're hungry, but you still have to decide how much you can afford to spend on it, which restaurant you're going to, and what you're going to order. And you still have to wonder whether or not you're going to have a massive case of food-poisoning afterwards. Show me an actual menu -- then I'll tell you if I'm impressed."

I've been too busy actually developing and integrating services for clients to get involved in this discussion...hehe...

Isn't it amazing the speed at which the IT world disposes of and creates new acronyms!
