Wednesday, October 20, 2004Systinet Here in an interview with Infoworld Tom talks about three phases for webservices. Tom explains,"in the first phase people viewed web services as a means for rather than building this API and RPCs with some proprietary protocol, build it using Web services.
In the second phase ,the business services phase, Web service moves to a business service. And the difference here is that people now are starting to say, well, rather than just build these interfaces onto existing applications, we’re actually going to design something from the ground up with a notion of reuse, with a notion of providing some real value.
Web services management … is what we call the third phase, and that still needs some more standards to get into play. I mean that needs things like WS-Addressing. So the first phase has just really done Web services and then created some business services. But what they haven’t done is helped us with what an SOA’s supposed to really be about, which is interoperability between these endpoints or applications, if you want to call them that, to the extent that not everything has to be known by the person building the endpoint at the time they build it.
Tom also explains on the possibility of getting bought out,"The motivation is to try to create some real value in the SOA space because we believe that there’s going to be a play, and we’re going to use [Systinet] as kind of the vehicle to achieve that. We believe that there’s an opportunity that when a paradigm shift happens there is an opportunity for a new company to emerge. If you go through time you can see this repeatedly again. There has been a new major player in the software industry appearing when there’s paradigm shifts because some of the older players fail to make the transition, whether it’s in the hardware transition from mainframes to [minicomputers] to micros, whether it’s been software transitions from mainframe to client/server to all along the way. Because [however] Pincus was involved in BEA, they’re the company that funded BEA, they have a similar vision -- [that] we can do this again.
