Good bye 06; Welcome 07!

I look back now, 2006 was a great year...valley seems to be back on its foot, lot's of activities here...if we have to take one thing from 06 to 07(from a tech perspective), it's the "Internet computing"! I think in 07, there will be lot more action inside the Internet cloud than 06. The network effect will continue to grow, more & more desktop apps, business apps, personal apps, storage, compute power will be pushed inside the cloud as a retail computing.

Let's welcome 07 and hoping that there won't be much problem with the US economy...

I wish you all a very happy & prosperous new year-2007.

Survey: SOA = Most Hated Buzzword

I don't want to sound too negative here and based
on a survey, SOA is the most hated buzzword by the IT folks. You can see the results here... ->

I mentioned in my earlier blog that the term SOA may loose value and it looks like it's loosing more quickly than expected???

Also note, where Web Service is in the list...

Let's not worry about these buzzwords, distributed computing is real, challenging & fun.

Infoworld: Software Trend for 2007

This is the time of year, we will start to see lot's of predictions for next year about technology trends...from individuals to companies to big web properties.

The Infoworld one got my attention, click here.

Did you see "SaaS" in there and I agree with them. SaaS/On-Demand with "pay as you use" model is the future for the lot's of applications!

Did you also notice "SOA" at the bottom...the way to read the paragraph is,
"...several years running....still in its earliest stages of adoption...."
Even in 2010, there is a good possibility that we may continue to read like this...but as I said earlier, the underneath technologies like SOAP, REST, XML, WS are all will continue to make progress. Infact, they are making progress right now as we speak about them. It's only the buzzword "SOA" will loose it's value.

Happy Holiday & take care.

When will it end, the 2.0 craze?

We all used to the buzz word "next generation" or "next gen" in technology to describe the new products and after Tim Reilly coined the term, "Web 2.0" & popularize it via his conference, now we see this 2.0 every where...It basically replaced "next generation" with "2.0", not just in tech/products but also for country names!

Here it is, India 2.0 , thanks to Mercury News.
