The business value of SOA

A very informative talk by Anne Thomas Manes, highlighting some key user queries such as;

- What is SOA?
- What SOA is not?
- Where exactly are we as far as adoption is concerned?
- How to go about implementing SOA and some realistic time lines

I particularly liked how she de-hyped ESBs as a key part of a SOA implementation. I always felt that an ESB should be an enabler at the most but never a key to SOA. It's good to know my thoughts were not misguided :)
