Distinction Between SOA and Enterprise 2.0

I came across this useful blog post that definitively provides an explanation of the distinctions between SOA, and Enterprise 2.0. The two terms are buzzwords currently in business and often times used without knowledge of the exact meaning. I hope post helps you as it did me!

SOA is not equal to Enterprise 2.0. If SOA is the complete architectural transformation to a service based information topology, Enterprise 2.0 is the new method of operating in a fully deployed SOA environment, and the set of modern applications that are largely driven by and controlled by the business. So the deployment of SOA should happen in a series of stages, moving from a core set of technical services upwards to the end vision of a full Enterprise 2.0 set of services.
