TechBookReport on Understanding Enterprise SOA
TBR writes "Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) are where the big money is these days, with all of the major vendors tripping over themselves to prove just how service oriented they can make you if you hand over huge bundles of corporate cash. In fact in the race to win bullshit bingo it's hard to know what gets you the most points these days, a vendor inspired SOA white paper or a roomful of MBAs discussing business process management. Those at the development end of the food-chain might be wondering what it is that the SOA rush is all about. Is it really more than just exposing functionality as web services?"
