SOA mentality - its about you, not me

On a discussion on the Yahoo SOA group there was a question on what is the difference between SOA and IT applications. The basic difference was simple

  • IT Applications - about me, the producer. About a specific task and about being able to blame other people for the overall thing not working
  • SOA - About you, the consumer, and providing a commitment to get things done across multiple areas and providing you with a single place to get it all done from.
This is just part of the SOA switch but its a big one. IT applications create a blame culture, SOA environments create a commitment culture.
