SOA 2.0

According to an Infoworld article, Gartner and Oracle, not content with the SOA concept, have created "SOA 2.0" as a label for a more advanced SOA approach. According to Gartner analyst Yefim Natis, the most important distinction between the two is that SOA 1.0 is client/server-driven, while SOA 2.0 is event-driven.

The notion of a new term was not universally greeted with enthusiasm. "I'm shocked, SHOCKED to see Gartner promoting new buzzwords just as the world starts to get a handle on the previous generation of their buzzwords." wrote Microsoft's Mike Champion in a posting to the Yahoo! SOA group.
