I published a link to my post "Choosing a SOA Consultant" in Ulitzer.
Ulitzer is a "new media" site.
The site provides a portal like page for every author. You can look at my
page as an example.
Each article's page includes related articles. For example "Choosing a SOA
Consultant" page includes the article Anatomy of a Cloud Consultant - What
Defines A "Cloud Expert?, written by Reuven Cohen, a leading Cloud Computing

On September, 14th I participated in a local IBM conference titled: Smarter
Solutions for a Smarter Business. One of the most interesting and practical
presentations was Moises Navarro's presentation on Cloud Computing.

Agility is considered as a major advantage of SOA, Virtualization and Cloud
By using Abstraction we create an Agile less complex model for Business
people and IT experts.
In this new Agile world it is easy to Change, Adapt and Build new entities.
Sometimes it could be too easy.
With too much Agility it may be a chaotic Enterprise rather than Elastic,
Flexible and Easy to change enterprise or Virtual Enterprise.
If we would like to enjoy the Bright side of Agility we have to take into
