Do you have a SOA story to tell? One that speaks to business value generation, rather than the singular pursuit of technical nirvana? If you answered yes to both, consider participating in the SOA case study contest from the SOA Consortium and CIO magazine. Ripped from my own post on the SOA Consortium Insights blog:
"The goal of the SOA case study contest is to highlight business success stories and lessons learned to provide proof points and insights for other organizations considering or pursuing SOA adoption.
Case study submissions must be for completed projects that used a SOA approach to deliver business value. In keeping with our charter, we are not looking for dissertations on the technical beauty of the architecture and implementation. Rather, we are interested in the business story, the business value generated, the degree of cross-organizational collaboration, and the usages of SOA approaches and supporting technology.
For more information on the contest and participation, please go here."

Would a story on SOA and how all carriers got together to work on a single service for motor vehicle checking that is called by state DMVs be interesting?
We implemented the same exact WSDL…
That would be a very interesting case study. A perfect example of cross-industry collaboration.
I hope you submit it!
