Thanks Charles. I also struggle with how anyone can dispute SOA as the driving force behind this trend. If SOA is really effective, the entire development lifecycle (and cost) should be dramatically reduced. Inherently a company is going to be more efficient at reusing a process component within its own enterprise than an outside developer who has to retrofit any development work to meet the different process flows of its clientele.

I really think you hit this topic spot on Jason as you did with the previous post. I just don't see how you can ignore the data that it's external development spend that's shrinking, not packaged apps. As you rightly point out, the large players are well hedged regardless.
