Enterprise Initiatives

This blog focuses on Enterprise IT topics such as Enterprise Architecture, Portfolio Management, Change Management, Business Process Management, and recaps various technology events and news.

First it was WOA vs. SOA, now it's Mashups vs. SOA. When will people start focusing on business problems and stop having religious wars about which technology is best? All of the above mentioned technologies are great tools for your IT toolbox. They should be used where they make sense. SOA is an architectural approach. Mashups and WOA are technologies that work well with SOA. Why can't we all get along?

One of the items on our SOA roadmap is extending our architecture to include mashups. We envision leveraging popular mashups like Google maps but we also hope that our customers can extend our products and services with their own mashups. Take a look at all of the mashups that are available for Salesforce.com.

I've said it before and I'll keep on saying it until somebody proves me wrong. The problem with these emerging technologies is not the technologies themselves, it is the people. Only people can take great concepts like SOA and Mashups and create a bunch of unnecessary noise that scares the masses away. Instead of arguing about semantics, people should try to better understand these concepts and figure out how they can apply them to solve real business problems. At the end of the day, the business doesn't care what technologies you use. They just want their tools delivered faster, easier to use, and at their finger tips wherever they are.
