Viral Data in SOA: An Enterprise Pandemic (9780137001804): Neal A. Fishman: Books

ISBN: 0137001800
ISBN-13: 9780137001804

I’m currently reading Neal Fishman’s Viral Data in SOA and really enjoying it.  What great timing on the analogy he’s using: the fact that data tends to move around from person to system to system to person in a manner that isn’t always controllable, at least not the way most people think it is.

Fishman is the Program Director for Information and Integration Forensics at IBM.  I’ve always said that data architecture is much more about forensics and archeology than it is about creating something from scratch.  Maybe that’s why I’m enjoying this work so much.  Fishman is also one of the authors of Enterprise Architecture Using the Zachman Framework.

Watch for a full review once I’m finished.
