SOA Infrastructure Management    (3FOS)

Comment: Do you mean the enterprise mgt techniques that made legacy systems so available, secure, monitorable, accountable? ;)    (3FQO)

Comment: Why does greater freedom require greater management? Wasn't the opposite true of the internet?    (3FQQ)

Network and Communications Infrastructure    (3FOV)

Comment: SLA=Service Level Agreement?    (3FQS)

Comment: Isn't this a problem the govt wants to have; i.e. many services, heavily used? Isn't the obstacle the absence of any (policy-compliant; secure+interoperable) connectivity at all? Shouldn't the policy guidance be 1) establish secure+interoperable foundation, 2) build services on that foundation, 3) decide how to manage problems as they surface, 4) evolve and improve.    (3FQU)

Comment: How would you avoid "disjointed network architectures", when each project stovepipe builds its own infrastructures because of the difficulties of funding infrastructural development?    (3FQW)

Portal Infrastructure    (3FP1)

Comment: Why isn't the first step to deploy a foundation infrastructure capable of secure+interoperable transport?    (3FQY)

Comment: Why build a portal before there are any services, or even any transport infrastructure capable of reaching them?    (3FR0)

Policies and Services    (3FP4)

Comment: Why? Please justify this claim. Are these requirements necessary? Sufficient?    (3FR2)

Comment: Comcast provides no SLA (and often fails to meet even that), yet I find internet services useful. The same is true of non-computer capabilities; i.e. US Postal service. Please justify and explain this claim.    (3FR4)

Meta Data Management    (3FP8)

Comment: The internet doesn't provide data quality, data redundancy and semantic consistency either. Has the internet "failed"? Why is SoA different?    (3FR6)
