Like most TLAs in IT, SOA too is 90% hype, 5% fluff, and 5% substance.

You almost certainly used it in the past without knowing it was SOA, yet suddenly it's something special that you must use because it's the latest and greatest.

Here's a link that talks in depth regarding SOA.

Although I agree with Jeroen's assessment about the hype SOA has generated. I do believe we need to incorporate the SOA philosophy during development of IT systems.

maybe, but we've been doing that for over a decade without second thought and without trying to surround it with all kinds of flashy acronyms and marketing slogans.
I agree. Here's the link:
