To suggest "SOA is dead" I guess means that the advantages of building discrete, reusable, interoperable services doesn't have any merit. I don't believe that, and, as one poster noted, these are best practices that have been distilled through experiences of the past few decades. So, no, SOA is not dead! I suppose like any over-hyped technology term, it's bound to have some backlash.
