What Sun got when it bought SeeBeyond

It's a beautiful thing when a plan begins to come together. Sun didn't buy SeeBeyond on a whim -- they had a definite strategy in mind, and there is a nice blog entry this weekend from my boss's boss's boss, Dale Ferrario, about how the pieces of our SOA strategy are coalescing into a coherent whole that is built on both Sun's and SeeBeyond's now-integrated SOA stack. There are some nice links to software downloads and background articles. SOA is the Next Big Thing in enterprise computing, and Dale's blog is a very good place to start if you want to begin to grok what it's all about.

Comments:

Of course the CNS leadership had a plan when they bought SeeBeyond: They were looking for some tools to help justify their horribly bloated Sun Connected Architecture and their design decisions around SOA. Funny thing is that when I left Sun, the SeeBeyond studio still didn't run on anything but Windows. Oh, and the server stack was only certified on Solaris 9... Great acquisition indeed...
