2013 Top 10 OTN Articles for Architects

One of the things I get to do as manager of OTN's Architect Community is work with community members who submit articles for publication on OTN. These articles typically deal with SOA, middleware, business intelligence, and other topics relevant to software architects. Thirty-seven such articles were published in calendar year 2013. The list below represents the Top 10 most popular of those articles.
