HP Discovers SOA

Deigning to dip its toe into shark-infested SOA waters, mighty Hewlett-Packard has decided for all of us that SOA is now ready to move beyond the prototype stage. I’m sure the tens of thousands of developers in every corner of the planet are relieved to know this. Must make the folks at IBM breathe easier, too, with HP apparently validating what Big Blue has been doing for about a decade.

HP says it won’t go it alone. It says Microsoft, Oracle, and even those Germans will be helping deliver the middleware (which is naturally the essence of SOA, dumbkopf!)

Where’s Tibco? Didn’t HP’s Mark Hurd just speak to the assembled masses at Tibco’s annual user group meeting? Wasn’t he all smiles that day? What’s going on here?
