Talking "S-O-A" with the Business

Lately, I've had a lot of conversations on talking about SOA with the business. Particularly on the best ways to build understanding and gain buy-in. No surprise, success is greater when IT adopts a business dialect and mindset. So, I'm curious, when you talk about S-O-A with the business, do you talk in IT terms, or business terms?

S-O-A in IT Terms is:

  • Service-Oriented Architecture
  • Sharing Our Assets
  • Strategy Offering Agility
  • Stream of Acronyms

S-O-A in Business Terms enables:

  • Strategic Outcome Attainment
  • Seizing Operational Agility
  • Silo-ed Organization Abolishment
  • Situational Optimization Alternatives
  • Shedding Obsolete Approaches
  • Speed Offering Advantage

Do you lead with an explanation of service-oriented architecture? Or do you close with a "by the way, service-oriented architecture enables this"? Are you successful in your messaging? Why, or why not?
