Farcical SOA Targets

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.

What on earth is the measure of success?  Much more importantly, why SOA?  SOA like any IT initiative is a means to an end, and that end is business value.  So why don’t IT people spend more time working out how to solve business problems instead of promoting self serving solutions.

If this is the sort of complete rubbish that Gorilla Vendor sponsored “clubs” are going to promote then I don’t want to be associated thanks.
