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?
