      An excellent article and made an interesting read. But solution-wise, I felt, they were getting overly complex by mixing various levels of abstraction of hardware and software. I understand that current investments and demand for tools to solve the corporate challenges of compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA. Both of these demand event-driven architecture with bulk hardware storage, tied into workflow based business processes. Companies like IBM, EMC, Sun and Hitachi are known to be working/competing in this domain -- a real life implementation of SOA + bulk [terra-bytes] storage systems + BPM + [ESB] Messaging + more.
      However, I really like making these different level of abstractions. Not because they really work that way in reality, but because of the bite-size chunks we humans can digest. I was wondering, and wanted to pass along, how IBM's "On-Demand" compares to TIBCO's "Real-Time" business:

      integration by allowing new and existing applications to be quickly
      combined into new contexts.

      require network communication and XML messages. The ESB provides
      services with the "service" conceptual model, while allowing for
      optimized communication and encodings of messages. In extreme cases,
      the interaction between two services might bind to a local program

      prior to deploy time, or very late through dynamic discovery

      capabilities and interactions. The growing acceptance of XML as a
      standard representation of structured information and of Web services
      standards (often called WS-* standards) have greatly facilitated the
      adoption of this architectural approach. The conceptual model of SOA
      applies to the virtualization of both business functions and physical
      infrastructure. It spans the construction of applications as well as
      their deployment and management. Clients (users or businesses) only
      see a collection of business services and are interested in their
      quality of service, but the On Demand Operating Environment shields
      them from the details of application assembly and service delivery.>>
