Subject: Re: [soa-rm-ra] Are we being ignored?

Exactly, Frank!

I only point to the concern that saying right things in SOA RA may be not enough because the second, but also first priority, thing is to win the audience.

I said make SOA RA much more VISIBLE to developers just to mitigate the resistance in both Business and IT to what SOA really is (the provider at the boarder, a bridge suitable to both Business and Technology). In my opinion, developers have to start thinking in services instead of in IT application integration and accept that thinking though SOA solutions and re-arranging development process around services and service compositions are must have aspects of modern IT work.

That is, I am calling for more aggressive promotion of RA opinions, statements, views and approaches. (As I mentioned already, SoaML standard repeats declarative wording from SOA RM but drops the actual consequences from them for the sake of winning developers who do not see real SOA wood behind the Web Services trees)

I sympathize with the sentiment behind this. We have consistently identified SOA as being at the boundary between business and IT. It is neither wholly IT nor wholly business but is of both worlds. 
That represents potentially one of SOA's greatest opportunities; and the source of its weaknesses: neither business nor IT can completely own/grok SOA.
