Cloud is currently a hot topic and companies are looking to move processing to the cloud. A key requirement for moving to the cloud will be good governance. SOA will be a key aspect to successfully moving to the cloud and good SOA Governance will have to be in-place to support Cloud related services. Common cloud attributes will be: Elastic scaling, Rapid provisioning, Advanced Virtualization, and Flexible pricing. All of these will require a services based environment driven by SOA and supported by SOA Governance.
