TechTarget has published another one of my “Ask the Expert” columns. In this one, I offer up my thoughts on the differences between a Microservices Architecture and a SOA. In a nutshell, I think the microservices trend has moved things in the right direction, a direction that many of the SOA pundits were espousing back in the mid-2000’s. Regardless of what we were saying, however, there’s no denying that the reality of SOA back then was still more of service enabled architecture then service oriented architecture. Give my thoughts a read, and feel free to post comments and questions in the discussion section over there.
