Global reality
Feb 26th: One sure sign that people are getting into real-world web services projects is when you start to see timezone awareness creeping into web services management products. So I was quite excited when I saw that the latest release of AmberPoint's Service Level Manager has added a 'Business Agreement Calendaring' function ...

Feb 12th: A year ago, there would have been a big fuss over eBay's announcement this week that it will add SOAP and Java APIs to its third-party integration options. Instead, there's been a muted reaction — partly because the announcement was expected, and those who knew it was coming will save their excitement until the APIs are published — mainly because SOAP is now such an accepted part of the landscape that its advent was more or less inevitable ...

Consolidation runs amok
Feb 4th: The impending acquisition of Confluent Software by Oblix has thrown a spanner in the works of analysts' neat predictions ...
