Welcome to the latest BriefingsDirect SOA Insights Edition, Vol. 11, a weekly discussion and dissection of Services Oriented Architecture (SOA)-related news and events, with a panel of IT analysts. In this episode, recorded Feb. 2, 2007, our experts examine a battle for control over what SOA is and does. Whomever controls the SOA to a large extent controls the company -- but how should that control actually work? Will companies take a lesson from world history on how to run the business and allow for federated and balanced power? Or will mismatched control over business elements, exacerbated by IT that can not reflect the will or wills of the controlling factors, drag SOA and productivity down? Our analysts and guests have some unconventional and startling conclusions, as well as thoughtful insights. Join noted IT analysts Steve Garone, Joe McKendrick, and Jim Kobielus -- along with guest Miko Matsumura, the vice president of SOA products at webMethods -- for our discussion, hosted and moderated by Interarbor analyst Dana Gardner.
