Businesses aren't machines, and enterprise architecture can't make them so

Neil Ward-Dutton, July 24, 2008: Via Service Oriented Enterprise, I recently picked up an Infoworld blog post by SOA journeyman David Linthicum, where he makes a couple of very strange points about SOA and ESBs. It may be, of course, that the post is pure link bait: certainly, David appears to have said some relatively sane things in the past, so that might be it. If it is link bait, I'm going to fall for it now.
