  • SOA is not new at all, is in anyway ‘cloud jargon’ nor is it complicated. It has been around since the start of the century, years before the idea of cloud computing arrived. The basic idea of SOA is to get rid of the spaghetti of connections and overlapping data and functionality of applications in a business application landscape.

    As posted recently on the idea and ajoined benefits of ‘cloud’ should be incorporate into the strategy of businesses. Same as the Service Oriented Architeture (SOA) paradigm, which in my mind are complementary to each other. Businesses need to further focus on loosely coupling their application landscape, allowing the (automatic) distribution of workloads across traditional and cloud (Public and Private) deployment models.
