I posted a response to Microsoft’s Rich Turner over at the mainframeblog. I posted it there because it included a jibe at Hursley.
We know you’re on the road to Indigo, Rich, but service orientation doesnt happen without people. By all means articulate the value of service orientation but don’t make it an attack on competitors who have admitted SOA is hard. That is just another FUD just angle, just as pernicious as any they would use against you.
Don’t ding enterprises for using consultants- what, your customers don’t use Accenture and Avenade or Microsoft Services or HP’s SOA practice or Infosys or Wipro?
