What is the Future of Oracle SOA?

I spend much of my time advising people on Oracle software, and someone just asked me on Quora.com about the future of Oracle SOA.

I told him that the future of Oracle SOA is bright, but within a much bleaker future for SOA in general.

SOA in general has over-promised and under-delivered to such an extent that it now considered legacy and poor practice. While a few organizations have gotten SOA right, most haven’t and have little to show for their multi-million dollar SOA projects.

For the people who still belive in a Service-Oriented Architecture (mainly public sector and large, slow-moving organizations), the Oracle SOA product is a very strong offering. As is to be expected of a product from the largest enterprise software vendor in the world, the Oracle SOA suite contains everything you need and carries a corresponding price tag.

Is Oracle SOA right for you? Send me a mail and let’s discuss it.
