I won’t generally use this blog to point to articles, however a friend pointed this out to me today – and it has implications for rules deployments and a bunch of my friends who consult in the space. According to Infoworld, Gartner finds that SOA adoption appears to be slowing.
The key quote from InfoWorld is probably this:
“The two major reasons organizations choose for not pursuing SOA are lack of skills and expertise and no viable business case. There is confusion about constructing a business case for SOA, Gartner said.”
I’m sure the economy is a factor in this as well, but I’ll be watching carefully for the next set of projections.
The business case confusion is another aspect that I’ll probably be touching upon in my notes from ORF Day 3.
