If if haven't had a chance to read the interview by Jeremy Geelan, Sr. Vice-President of SYS-CON Media & Events, take a moment to read it.
Middleware is one of the fastest growing segments of the software industry today because of SOA. Gordon talks about why and how he believes that the increased interest in Web 2.0 and rich Internet applications (RIA) will further accelerate this growth. He also explains what he believes are the current barriers to SOA adoption and that IT infrastructures need to move toward normalization, as opposed to homogenization, and that the adoption of SOA infrastructure such as enterprise service bus (ESB) and SOA management will help normalize infrastructure interactions with backend systems.
Gordon also talks about the Progress Software approach and how he believes 2008 will be the "year of the events" and that events are the decoupling agent in modern enterprise computing architectures and are as important as services and processes.
