Once again we are dragging our feet trying to put out fires versus actually understanding the way that our application components interact with each other. I have been pushing us to get a POC going for the last 10 months. Once again I was told to wait due to time constraints. My new answer is forget that, we will run our own POC and show the value to one of our more complex products that has a not of issues due to the number and frequency of its calls to other webservices.
I am moving ahead with this plan in the next 2 weeks.
