I'm Wondering What Comes After SOA

To Infinity, and Beyond...

At the end of the year, it's always interesting to take a moment and try to imagine what's next. In this case, I'm not thinking about whether the Patriots will win the Super Bowl, I'm wondering what comes after service-oriented architecture.

Although SOA has been dramatically hyped as the solution to cure all ills, it has still taken a good deal of time for organizations to adopt SOA in even a limited fashion. It's clear from its adoption by vendors as an integration strategy and by many IT organizations as a design philosophy that SOA will eventually be the mainstream set of architecture and governance principles for IT.
