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.
