Podcast Show Notes: SOA and Cloud - Where's This Relationship Going?

Opinions vary on the relationship between service oriented architecture and cloud computing. Some say SOA is essential to the cloud. Others say cloud is entirely possible without SOA. In this three-part program three members of the Masons of SOA, the group behind the Industrial SOA article series, offer their insight into the issue.

The Panelists

(Listed alphabetically)
  • Jurgen Kress, Oracle EMEA Alliances and Channels, founder of the Oracle SOA and BPM community, the Oracle WebLogic Partner Community, and the global Oracle Partner Advisory Councils.
    Twitter Blog LinkedIn Facebook
  • Hajo Normann, SOA / BPM Lead for ASG at Accenture, Oracle ACE Director
    Twitter Blog LinkedIn Oracle ACE Director
  • Guido Schmutz, Technology Manager for SOA/BPM and Architecture Board at Trivadis, Oracle ACE Director
    Twitter Blog LinkedIn Oracle ACE Director

The Conversation

  • Listen to Part 1 (program #244): What is the relationship between SOA and Cloud Computing? How is that relationship changing? Is the Cloud changing SOA?
  • Listen to Part 2 (program #245) [available April 24] : What effect does the ease of acquiring services in the cloud have on the existence of development silos? What role can SOA principles play in bridging those silos?
  • Listen to Part 3 (program #246) [available May 1]: Many services suffer from poor architecture, say these experts. There is a better way.

"Services designed and developed by monkeys..."

This bit from a recent post by InfoWorld blogger David Linthicum needs no additional editorial comment.

Organizations deploying clouds are doing so by standing up many APIs, or services. They use services to form and re-form business solutions. The solutions are inherently changeable, which places volatility into a configurable domain. That's SOA, folks. But few people actually understand SOA, so they're not getting the advantages they should be from their cloud efforts.

The result is that cloud APIs and services appear to be designed and developed by monkeys. They are either too coarse-grained or too fine-grained. They don't work and play well with other services, and they are difficult to maintain during production.

OK, maybe one small editorial comment: Hell yes.

The Question Lingers: Who Gets to Be an Architect?

Yesterday a post on this blog (see The Architect as Salesperson) was the catalyst for the following Twitter conversation:

That conversation with @ChadThompson echoed comments I've heard time and again over the last several years in conversations with architects and other IT professionals. In fact, the very issue Chad raises in the last tweet came up in a conversation that occurred in the spring of 2011 when a panel of working IT architects gathered for an OTN ArchBeat podcast to answer the question: Who Gets to Be an Architect?.

That discussion included the following architects:

  • Ron Batra Twitter Blog LinkedIn Oracle ACE Director Profile
  • Bex Huff Twitter Blog LinkedIn Oracle ACE Director Profile
  • Randy Stafford Blog LinkedIn
  • Eric Stephens Twitter Blog LinkedIn

While the discussion in the podcast series is two years old, the issues raised are no less valid today, a situation that is unlikely to change any time soon. If you're an architect, or aspire to be one, take a few minutes to listen to the podcast and then share your thoughts in the comments section.
