IBMers Andre Tost (Senior Tecnical Staff Member, SOA Technology and Software Services for WebSphere) and Robert Laird (an IBM Enterprise Architect focused on SOA governance and policy) are co-authors of the new Thomas Erl SOA series book, SOA Governance: Governing Shared Services On-Premise and in the Cloud. They talk about working on a project with such a large pool of contributing authors, the value of this large reference work, the reason for so many early failures in SOA implementations, and how good governance guides and protects the realization of service-oriented computing.
Also, check out this interview with Roberto Medrano of SOA Software, Inc. to hear his comments on coming needs, challenges, opportunities in SOA. Medrano authored a foreword in the SOA Governance book discussed above.
