Loosely coupled thinks business software practices should start looking for another way to make money. With standardised, rich service offerings available to companies - offered by SOA's (which are rehashed webservice based ASP's) business analysts will be able to do most of the aggregation work to combine services by themselves.
Some slides presenting SOA architectures. My favourite quote: Code doesn't travel. Amen to that. All good successful standards are based on located service and portable data (email, html, - even tcp/ip itself). (Bad news: Slides are in PowerPoint. Urgh. What happened to platform independence?)Posted by Claus at June 12, 2003 11:33 PM
