The Portal - SOA divide

  • 27-Jun-2007

Alan Pelz-Sharpe recently cited a brewing backlash against SOA in the enterprise content management world. In the portal market I'm certainly hearing growing concerns about SOA from the user community. While some vendors, notably BEA, are continuing their year-long push for SOA, buyers are learning some expensive lessons. In particular the constant need for change management and the persistent performance problems are causing raised eyebrows. Portals can put a face to SOA, but still many vendors (e.g. IBM, SAP) with strong SOA marketing sell enterprise portals that only run on top of their very own software. As I point out in the Enterprise Portals Report, this would seem to contradict the idea of loosely coupled software...
