Anybody still thinks SOA is just a buzz-word?

If there was any doubt in anyone's mind that SOA is here to stay, that services are the way forward for many applications, and that Microsoft is investing a lot in enabling us to deliver even better solutions based on SOA, SaaS, S+S etc, yesterday's announcement about Oslo (also check out this issue of research directions) shows that the level of commitment in this field by Microsoft is only increasing, and that we're about to see a lot more in this area over the next couple of years.

Everyone says it, and it's true - these are very exciting times to be in software development, especially in the enterprise and BPM/EAI in particular perhaps, and I can't help the feeling we've really only scratched the surface on this one, a lot more is still to come.

I'm sure we're all going to hear, read and write a lot in the next few weeks; I know I've got tons of new stuff to read on my desk now, and hopefully will get to see some nice stuff coming out of this in a few months time.

BTW, don't forget to check out the newly launched SOA web site as mentioned by Marjan Kalantar
