Its good to be dead

According to Burton Group's Anne Thomas Manes, SOA is dead. RedMonk's James Governor points out that dead technologies make money. (Brilliant piece James!)

Phew, I'm glad we're writing software for a dead trend.

Interesting articles. Yes it is true that people want to always write things off. Microsoft killer, google killer etc. I do however have concerns about SOA because it so difficult to define. Of course the people who are in it, know what it is, but they have a heck of a time getting mere mortals to understand it, including myself.
And I am a CTO. If you don't understand something, you don't buy it. My company has struggled for years to truly define what our end user product really does and that has been our single most difficult sales challenge.
