There’s an interesting discussion going on over at the Service-Orientated Architecture Yahoo Group. Below is an excerpt of one of my contributions to give you a flavor of the debate. Please join in (preferably on my side <grin>)!
I’m calling [Bull****] on Business-SOA, which I interpret as business-only SOA, ie believing that technology is basically irrelevant to the success of SOA because "good" business-only SOA can work with ANY technology, including smoke signals. That’s pure fantasy concocted on PPT slides. Hence B-SOA (business-only SOA) is BS-SOA [bull**** SOA].
T-SOA (Technology-SOA) is just as bad. It believes that business-issues don’t matter because SOA technology is so powerful and wonderful and magical that the mere purchase, deployment, and technical training in WS-*, ESBs, Registry/Repositories will improve the business automagically. T-SOA (technology-only SOA) is also BS-SOA [bull**** SOA].
