The Future of SOA: the Industrialization of Software
Judith Hurwitz, President, Hurwitz & Associates
Organizations are beginning to think differently about how they leverage their software assets as critical business enablers. The movement toward SOA will have a profound impact on the strategic role of software. There will be many unintended consequences of SOA that are yet to be understood. For example, the balance of power among software vendors will change. In addition, business leaders will have a much more profound role in the development of software than ever before. We are indeed at the early stages of the industrialization of software. This talk will focus on where SOA is headed and how it will impact organizations over the coming decade.
