I think that it‘s time for us to start learning from the successes of public Web services, such as Google maps, Ebay and Amazon. Let‘s face it, today enterprise SOA implementations are still in infancy. Most organizations are just testing waters, developing the prototypes and implementing pilot projects.

At the same time, Google maps, Ebay and Amazon Web services have been tremendously successful. I know that Google maps example has already been overused by the “Web 2.0” hype, but it is indeed pretty amazing. I subscribe to Google maps mania blog and there are several new “mashup” applications being announced every day. So how do these service providers manage to keep their diverse array of clients happy?
