I am presenting a discussion on SOA, S+S and Cloud computing later today at SOA Symposium. I have included the abstract for the talk and the slides that will be used in the presentation for anyone interested.

Organizations evaluating Software + Services and Cloud Computing offerings must first have a well thought-out SOA strategy in order to maximize the return on their investment. They must further understand how the Software + Services platform and the related emerging platforms can be shaped with SOA principles in order to establish a sound and standardized services eco-system that can build up on and extend service-oriented architecture implementations. This presentation will describe the relationship between these various paradigms, including detailed discussions of topics relevant to enterprise architects, software architects and infrastructure architects.
