Why SOA is implemented by more enterprises than BPM?
SOA is an Architecture, so an enterprise may use an Architecture or not.
Many Enterprises without any architecture, begin their SOA initiative, when
SOA was only Hype and buzzword. Other Enterprises followed when it matured.

Unfortunately, many of them executed it wrongly, and therefore their SOA
benefits were limited or even non-existent.
Managing Business Processes is not an option it is a must. Therefore
Enterprises managed their Processes manually or by usage of code embedded
in Systems' Business Logic Layer.

all-or-nothing proposition that demands an uncompromising commitment to an
enterprise-wide transformation effort. For those that subscribe to this vi... (more)

I’ve been in several meetings recently that have hit on the topic of
Data.gov. Data.gov will become a repository for all the information the
government collects, and that information will be in turn available to anyone
who needs it. Pretty positive move, if you ask me. However, the
existing data-as-a-service providers that traffic in government data could

The core issue is that many existing data-as-a-service players make their
living from publishing reconstituted, and cleansed, government data that they
