SOA Startups & 2006
The marketing buzzword "SOA" is finally starting to cool down but it doesn't mean that loosely coupled nature of apps or even some of the new foundations like SOAP will fade away...
The big players will be pushing very hard their sw/hw products in the SOA umbrella but in a more concrete fashion. This new paradigm is an evolution and not revolution.
So, what does it mean for the SOA startups? Already Sarvega, Datapower, Systinet and Actional(actional+westbridge) is taken away by the big players. IMO, few more of them will be bought out by end of this year 2006 and comes 2007, it will mostly be a big player playing field for SOA.
