Anne Thomas Manes and I are currently conducting formal research to get a detailed and updated perspective of SOA adoption. We're wondering if organizations establish realistic goals, identify and measure metrics, what return organizations are seeing, and how long it takes to realize those benefits. We also hope to identify any roadmap steps and trends that particularly lead to success, stalls, or breakdowns.
While hundreds of prior conversations with IT professionals have influenced our current perspective, a new research approach (Contextual Design) promises to add greater insight and change our recommendations. We would like to request your participation.
We plan to interview representatives from several companies. All data will be kept anonymous, and we guarantee privacy and confidentiality. Our goal is to compile the information we collect to identity trends and patterns - not to produce individual case studies. We will be happy to share an early view of the compiled results with participants. The research will serve as the basis for future reports, and we plan to present our findings at our annual Catalyst Conference in San Diego in June.
If you would like to share your war stories and to benchmark your experience with peers, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a time to chat with Anne or me.
