Reardon Commerce - killer app for SOA?

Danny Ayers at the Grid Computing Blog noted with interest the announcements from Rearden Commerce (formerly Talaris).

I agree.  This is what SOA is really all about.

After 5 years in stealth mode, the EBS (Employee Business Services) product has been revealed as the first application of Rearden Commerce Platform, (from Rearden Commerce, formerly Talaris). This is an entirely service-based approach to, well, services, - hardware and software are entirely looked after by Rearden, leaving the business to focus on their core capabilities. What’s notable is that it appears to be the first complete, integrated (loosely-coupled…) commerce platform built from the ground up using “pure” Services-Oriented Architecture (SOA). They have drifted a little from the WS mothership a little with their own version of BPEL called Services Business Language to support composite event-driven applications, but what’s one more spec amongst hundreds. Their platform is user-centric, with identity-based services similar to those of Microsoft’s abandoned/mutated Hailstorm project.
