SOA Fatigue

August 12, 2008

Burton Group is saying (you have to be registered with them and pay $$$ to read their stuff) that we are all suffering from “SOA fatigue.” I don’t how much I could quote from their document and remain legal and all, but here is the gist of it:

Most SOA projects will fail, maybe at least 90% of them according to some sources. Failure makes you tired.

Between the impossibility of the projects, the usual vendor crap, budget woes in a not-so-good economic climate, and management, management!, even the IronMen on your team (there is one who is a manager here) get worn out like a used sock.

SOA is needed for some business purpose, not because it is needed because it is.

Implementing SOA is like raising teenagers. If that isn’t discouraging enough..
