Is 2008 the year of SOA

I mentioned that many are predicting that Business Intelligence will finally come into its own in 2008. The trouble is, I've heard that every year for the past five years. Now I hear that 2008 will be the year of SOA.

This time, I'm not as skeptical. The reason is that the idea of SOA is simply to use entire systems as a single resources, providing a service to the collective architecture. Under that definition, you could even consider your e-mail server(s) as a SOA architecture.

So the point is that SOA can take hold because companies aren't being sold SOA as a unit - it's just happening organically.

2008 - the year of SOA!
