SOA from the combat zone

SOA is about people, processes, and technology, but unfortunately most projects focus on the technology

Just completed my keynote presentation, "SOA in the Combat Zone," at the InfoWorld SOA Executive Summit. I thought it went well. You can find the slides here. I do have an audio recording, I'll post it somewhere.

A few things I noted:

  • SOA is about people, processes, and technology. It's really divided evenly, but unfortunately most projects focus on the technology.
  • Most companies are still at the experimenting stage.
  • People are getting smarter around SOA, but progress is slower than I thought.
  • As I told Software AG's Miko Matsumura, "It's like I'm running a fat farm, and people are sneaking in with snacks."

More to come from this conference.
