InfoQ's recent cloud panel featuring William Vambenepe
By alexismp on Sep 28, 2011
InfoQ recently published a Virtual Panel on "SOA and Cloud Computing" with five participating subject matter experts. While the term SOA may sound a bit out of fashion these days, it appears that there is consensus about the fact that it can help well-designed business applications move to the cloud.
In particular, Oracle's William Vambenepe considers that moving to the cloud without identifying application components, dependencies and interactions would only "really just be a move towards virtualization". The panel also discusses wether Cloud Fatigue will follow SOA Fatigue and if that is a bad thing. "Does WS-* have a future in cloud/IT management automation?" is another interesting question.
I have to say I like short bio's. William's is nice but so is this one.
