In the podcast, Roger makes this prophetic statement:
"Web Services will be both a boon and a bane for large enterprises.

A boon, because it will enable workflow in ways unimaginable a few years ago.

A bane, because it will result in the most expensive and spectacular IT failures in the history of our industry."
Roger Sessions, Founder and CEO of ObjectWatch Inc., Board Director of the International Association of Software Architects.

I had a great conversation with Roger Sessions as a follow-up to a text-based interview. I feel when Roger speaks, it is well worth your time to listen and dialogue with him. You will see what I mean when you listen to the interview. Moreover, check out his substantial credentials by clinking any of the links. Just a small sampling of his achievements include: lead architect for Software Arts; lead product architect for Object Persistence for IBM; lead architect for the CORBA Persistence Specification for the OMG and for IBM’s Persistence Implementation; one of four architects in the US named a Microsoft MVP; author of widely regarded books, articles, and technical advisories.

Roger is famous for his significant contributions to software architecture and his advance warnings about areas critical to business survivability, availability, and business enablement. Often he has taken unpopular positions years ahead of other analysts. Check out his prior work as proof..

I invite you to hear his thoughts in an exclusive podcast interview, for riding to success or spiraling down the path to failure, with the foremost expert who speaks his mind and has an enviable record for accuracy about his predictions. In our talk, he makes a number of them that must be scrutinized by IT Managers, Business Leaders, and Software Architects.

Here is the direct link to the interview and to an interview page containing both a link to the interview and a "Time Index (minutes: seconds): Topics List" which you can use to selectively go to any key discussion.
 
Send me an e-mail if you have questions for Roger or better yet comment here in this forum. We talked about this--Roger welcomes feedback and especially when his thoughts generate controversy.

Thank you,
Stephen Ibaraki
