Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence in Your Enterprise


During our recent conversation with David Linthicum about the convergence of cloud and SOA, he explained that the cloud should not be looked at as a new architecture, but instead as another option for storing and running services within a SOA, similar to buying a new server or data center. "Don't focus on what has changed, focus on what is the same," said Linthicum. "I think that you'll find cloud computing is a lot less scary that way."

In his new book, Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence in Your Enterprise, Linthicum provides a step-by-step guide to how cloud computing and SOA can be leveraged together. The pairing may reduce some of SOA's complexity. "What I see is a lot of people that are building service-oriented architectures in the cloud and not even knowing they're doing it," said Linthicum during our interview. We've provided a free excerpt from Linthicum's new book for your perusal.
