Anne Thomas Manes, who pronounced SOA dead a year ago, talks about the reincarnation of SOA. She believes the old SOA had to die because it was too much focused on technology and products, while the new one, absolutely necessary for the new cloud computing era, will be focused on architecture, principles and practices.
Anne Thomas Manes is a Vice President and Research Director at Burton Group where she covers SOA, web services, XML, governance, Java, application servers, superplatforms, and application security. She is a member of the editorial board of Web Services Journal, a leading industry publication, is a frequent speaker at trade shows, author of numerous articles and a book on web services.
The International SOA Symposium is a yearly event that features the top SOA experts and authors from around the world, providing a series of keynotes, talks, demonstrations, panels, and SOA training and certification workshops - all with an emphasis on realizing SOA in the real world.
Thumbs down. Worst slides and presentation.

Could be more informative and detailed.
Also it could have been extended with how some SOA stacks have added business value to clients (in what problem domains and what environments). These could have been really interesting.
Without that, all that I seem to be hearing is motherhood and apple pie. :(.
