War of Ruby & Enterprise Architecture
Self proclaimed Enterprise Architectural genius (?!) James McGovern rips apart Ruby on Rails and says it is not enterprise ready and offers his own points of ruby bashing. David Heinmeier Hanson, the geek founder of Ruby on Rails offers his own take on that article and says why enterprise is dead. I certainly believe, Ruby on Rails has its own benefits in agile software development. With the Web 2.0 mania worldwide [yours truly is also a species of that genre] the requirement for doing something faster is getting fatter.
The traditional "Enterprise" which represents controlled systems, with system engineers, administrators and others has buried long time ago. Companies like Google, Microsoft, Yahoo!, Amazon, Salesforce are feverishly pushing distributed computing architecture and browser/mobile based collaboration & technologies to organisations. The inflated, fat "ENTERPRISE" in 20th century is already on its way to its mortuary. World at large is moving towards, anywhere architecture than a cubicle driven, cafteria gossiped, closed user system.
I am not an authority in Enterprise applications, I leave that to Sadagopan to dig this deeper and analyse.
