First is first!
Please, accept the warmest greetings in New 13 Year! I believe that you sacred plans will realise and you will come up with even more advanced ideas. I wish you happiness and prosperity if you need it for being happy!
I'd like to share with you a gift I was given suddenly. I've described an adventures model of business organisation for a service-oriented enterprise in my coming book "Architects Know What Managers Don't" (ISBN ISBN 978-0-9575199-0-9), and a few days ago one of my client companies had announced plans for realisation of this model. The core of this model is in that business flexibility in the marker requires dividing corporate IT as the next evolutionary step. Particularly, going forward, IT needs to comprise two parts
a) delivery teams that work on specifics of business processes in business units, for these units and under the units' management
b) shared corporate resources like e-mail, security solutions, databases, etc. that remain under a central IT management and control
The key regulator of the divided and distributed parts of IT is described in the book and mentioned in the BLOG "A Good Service Idea Flies Fast".
This is how service orientation gets back into IT life nowadays.
