One of the most challenging things about being an advocate for a broad horizontally applicable technology is that it does not solve a particular business problem. Instead, it solves about 100,000 business problems.
I’ve been writing about application and data integration technology for quite a while. Lots of people “get it” and even more don’t.
I’m going to take a bit of a break from writing on the technology and instead focus on the business problems that the technology solves.
One of the first areas that i’ll be focusing on is “Legacy Modernization”.
I’ve written a bit of an ice-breaker on ebizQ
I’ve also created a legacy modernization site where I’ll be attempting to aggregate interesting/worthwhile content on the topic.
