Cote at RedMonk noted that IBM didn't once mention open source at their SOA-focused Impact 2008 Conference. My guess? IBM wants the SOA paradigm to remain a rich-man's sport and they want their army of consultants to put IBM products into place. As such they focus on "the Business" instead of just solving the problem.
Instead of embracing open source as a part of SOA, IBM is choosing to push only its own expensive and cumbersome products, which simply doesn't make sense.
