SOA? What do you call it?

SOA? What do you call it?

Posted on January 21, 2010 0 Comments

Some of you may have noticed that we renamed our blog from SOA Infrastructure to Integrated Infrastructure. This came about when our product marketing team wanted to create a new “Open Integration” blog – same authors, same topics. Admittedly, I wasn’t a proponent of it because I wanted more blogging activity here, and I wanted to leverage the audience (and SEO truth be told) that we've built up over the past two years. So, I recommended that we re-brand it and we did.

I have no doubt that one of the reasons we wanted to move away from SOA was due to last January’s post by Ann Thomas Manes, SOA Is Dead; Long Live Services. Lots of SOA evangelists commented about the post, including our VP of Products Dan Foody who agreed with Anne’s perspective. Me? I personally think that SOA in itself is just a marketing term for a number of fairly distinct things, including enterprise integration.

With that said, this wouldn’t be a post by me if I didn’t offer or promote something, so I’m going to let you fill in the blanks.
