Is SOA Activity Growing or Shrinking?

Coming back from the Oracle Open World conference, a lot of energy was around the Oracle middleware solutions and SOA. So I found the recent projections from Gartner that SOA growth projections are shrinking. The article says the number of companies looking at going to SOA is dropping dramatically since the beginning of 2008.

In this article, "Gartner also said the number of organizations already pursuing SOA shows a massive change in the future perception of SOA, from something that is essentially inevitable for all organizations in a short time to a situation where many organizations evaluated SOA and have chosen not to spend time and effort on it."

A lack of SOA expertise and no true business we also stated as key reasons for the slowdown in SOA growth projections. I found it interesting that SOA adoption is highest in Europe, moderate in the United States and lowest in Asia. Oracle is completely committed to SOA and the middleware for the Oracle Fusion Middleware applications, so the activity surrounding SOA is not likely to change around Oracle environments. However, SOA activity outside of Oracle will be interesting to monitor for the next year.

    The Trubix Blog is focused on discussions on strategic directions in database technology and the challenges Oracle technologists are addressing today and in the future. This site will focus on issues and challenges of database management that cannot be resolved with a code snippet. There are already a lot of great websites out there with tons of code samples. We would like to facilitate more discussions on issues Oracle technologists are dealing with today that a quick search on the Internet cannot solve. There will also be a group of recognized industry leaders that will also participate in this blog. This blog is an extension of the Tim Tam Group, an international group of industry leaders that meet once a year to discuss strategic directions in the industry.
