There is a buzz around the post WPC world that Microsoft may be about to launch a single SKU that in real terms is the Microsoft shrink wrapped SOA product.
Burley Kawasaki, director of product management with Microsoft’s Connected Systems Division, is quoted as saying. “We are trying to codify our experience and create an integrated licensing offering so you can buy a single SKU and have all the software you need … We think this pack can be a platform for building Office-based composite apps on top of an SOA infrastructure including SharePoint, and use Visual Studio tools for modifying and building Office applications.”
