Jeanne W. Ross, Principal Research Scientist at the MIT Sloan Center for Information Systems Research, and co-author of the excellent book Enterprise Architecture as Strategy, is conducting a survey investigating SOA adoption and value.
“The survey asks architecture leaders to share their views in 4 key areas: SOA adoption, current practices, value and results, and barriers to SOA success. We also intend to understand linkages, if any, between SOA initiatives and company financial performance. Our objective is to help those responsible for architecture better understand how their organizations stack up on a variety of key SOA metrics: investment, progress, reuse, and others.
The survey – which will take 10-15 minutes to complete – is available here. The survey will be available on line through the end of May.
This survey is a joint effort of MIT’s Center for Information Systems Research and Diamond Management and Technology Consultants. All responses will be kept completely confidential. Only research team members will know the responses from any organization, and findings will be reported only in aggregate. Of course, you will receive a complimentary copy of the full report."
Please consider participating in this survey. Personally, I’m looking forward to the results, especially on the linkage of SOA initiatives and company financial performance.
