Farcical SOA Targets

Monday, May 14th, 2007

I am indebted to Joe McKendrick for alerting me to this story providing exciting news that the SOA Consortium is targeting that 75% of the global 1,000 businesses will have made a “successful” SOA implementation by 2010.

It’s this sort of complete nonsense that gives SOA, and IT people in general a bad name.


Rogue IT Survey – can you help?

Monday, May 14th, 2007

If you work in enterprise IT can you help me by completing a short survey?

Click here to go to the survey

A frequent theme on my blog is the ongoing fallout between IT and The Business.  This is often exacerbated by business staff trying to implement their own technology solutions despite IT.

Allan, commenting on my IT vs the business post suggested that the business views IT as “not so much irrelevant as an active hindrance for most (large) organisations”.

Is this driving the rise in so called “Rogue IT” solutions being implemented by business staff?  I want to capture the views from an IT perspective.

Please have your say.  If you want to leave your contact details at the end of the survey (optional) I will send you a copy of the results.  I will also publish them on this blog.
