Cite: SOA, build or buy


Repeat with me: SOA is something you do, not something you buy

- David Linthicum

 

This is a nice cite I’ve read at the preface of the book I was talking about yesterday.

Yes, it seems a cite said by Captain Obvious, but it’s still amazing how many vendors try to sell their products as “SOA-out-of-the-box”.

It’s a pity. With so much hype, many customers have a fuzzy idea of what SOA is, and some of them are convinced to buy it.

But they can’t. Because SOA is something you do, not something you buy.
