ITKO Moves to New Blog

Dallas, TX June 4, 2008 -- After more than 3 years of blogging, we've finally moved our discussion on SOA Testing, Validation and Virtualization to a dedicated new home within the site.

So point your RSS feeds and news pages to:

The new blog will feature much easier searchability, navigation and a simplified set of categories so you can get to the information you're looking for much faster. We've also researched and added links to a lot more blogs we like reading. And of course, expect even more frequent content updates, ideas and best practices from John and the rest of the ITKO team.

ITKO LISA Soapbox Overview

Welcome to the updated ITKO LISA SOA Testing, Validation and Virtualization Soapbox! John Michelsen (founder & chief geek of ITKO) and other ITKO experts use this blog as a sounding board for issues, events and trends within enterprise IT. We cover how enterprises are managing the risk of increased change and complexity in IT. As business applications evolve, through techniques such as SOA governance, BPM (business process management), rich Internet applications, and highly distributed integration of shared services and legacy technologies, our methods and tools need to help us keep up with this increasing rate of change and complexity.

Though this blog is coming from a software provider, tools are just a piece of the puzzle. Achieving success across the teams that design, build and change our enterprise applications requires a higher level of trust across teams. We lived a life as a custom development firm in a service-oriented world before we were even calling it SOA.

We invite you to look into our past posts and not just our latest content. Many of the past posts remain current as we aim to discuss issues and not simply provide news. Browse our categories and use our search field. So we hope you will find some insights and ideas here, and we welcome your comments and questions on these topics.
