I've noticed that, like Rudy Giuliani, I still purchase my clothes a few sizes too big. While I can't speak for Rudy, somewhere deep inside I've been conditioned to think that when I buy clothes, I have to buy them big and "grow into them." I rationalize this by enjoying the fact that I can go shopping just once every few years.
It's a silly eccentricity that, according to Freud, I can just blame on my mother. I'm not going to grow any more and really don't need to buy pants that will fit perfectly in a few years. I need pants that fit now. Besides, even if I were still growing, by the time my clothes fit properly, I'd probably need a wardrobe update to account for new standards styles and business requirements personal preferences.
I know, I bore you with my neurosis. SOA What?
You see (lie down on the couch if you need), you buy software the way I buy clothes.
Why do we act this way when we should know better?!
I'll tell you why we act this way, and... it's not your mother's fault. It's your software vendor's fault. They want you to buy as much as you think you'll ever need right upfront.
With Progress Actional, we've made it safe for you to buy just what you need for web services and SOA management. Here's how...
I don't want you to hate the big vendors any more than Freud wants you to hate your momma. Like him, I just want to help heal the pain they cause.
