I recently found myself faced with a 2.5″ NTFS formatted laptop hard drive from a 5 year old laptop that wouldn’t cooperate and would constantly fail so I decided to try and recover what I could from the drive by running SpinRite, a great application from Steve Gibson of Gibson Research that I have used successfully […]

While many SOA initiatives have manifested and exposed internal business logic in the form of web services the approach for SOA is actually very non-technical and is rooted in a deep understanding of the business and strategic goals and involves an ever evolving process of continuous improvement and refinement.
