Director of Architecture Strategy,
The software landscape is rapidly changing, and the need for a new architecture to accommodate these changes is swiftly emerging. The appearance of the software-as-a-service (SaaS) paradigm has provided the opportunity to develop powerful applications that operate on the edge. The business and social models that drive software and commerce are changing as well. This means that software architects have to take a step back and think about what lies over the horizon. To move beyond SOA, you must find a way to connect the edge of software development to the existing services infrastructure. Microsoft's John deVadoss reveals new architecture that addresses these issues.
