QOTD

From Bill de hÓra: Wag the dog:


As strange as might sound, businesses might get more value from computer systems once those systems stop being optimized around transient business requirements or features. You can customize things, but only above the infrastructure. That seems to be part of the pitch for something like EC2.


Bill is talking about the systems level architecture, but can this observation be applied to software level services? Is this the pitch for SOA, in that business systems can be composed from existing smaller discreet services in the cloud?
