SOA is Dead; Long Live Services

Blogger: Anne Thomas Manes
Obituary: SOA

“SOA met its demise on January 1, 2009, when it was wiped out by the catastrophic impact of the economic recession. SOA is survived by its offspring: mashups, BPM, SaaS, Cloud Computing, and all other architectural approaches that depend on ‘services’.”

This obviously sparked a few tweets with comments from Singapore, Europe and the US. I was also pointed to Five fearless predictions for SOA 2009 (Thanks Laura!), which had very excellent points including:

“Vendors will de-emphasize SOA as a distinct “product” offering. There will be less hype about SOA, but that doesn’t mean it will have gone away. New solutions and applications will have service-oriented aspects. Cloud offerings will be built in accordance with SOA principles. There won’t be a lot of start-up vendors pitching SOA solutions, but plenty of start-ups will be offering Web 2.0-type and cloud-based services, which will be underpinned by SOA principles.”

The reports of SOA’s death have been greatly exaggerated! (My apologies to Mark Twain)
