Should SOA be extended to cloud computing, or is cloud a different level
of computing? Should the same best practices being applied to SOA –
governance, orchestration, ROI measurements – be applied to cloud
computing and Web 2.0 initiatives? Do we risk repeating some of the same
mistakes? What lessons have we learned from SOA implementations? Where
are the opportunities?
