Any die-hard software geek tends to be fascinated with solving the biggest, most complex IT problems enterprises face. In terms of testers, this means moving away from manual testing and getting teams to “go agile” with early development testing, or looking "between the boxes" into val...
This is certainly the case, whether or not SOA is a leading indicator of SaaS. However, it will take a while for SaaS in a Cloud Computing model to catch up with SOA (see ReadWriteWeb’s post - Fastest Growing US Companies are Rapidly Adopting Social Media for a presentation of this p...
