CA to Present at SOA World Conference & Expo

Understanding How SOA Done Wrong Can Compromise Your Enterprise

Popular assumptions can often be dangerous. We will consider how the many unique and highly-regarded architectural characteristics of SOA, such as loose-coupling, can actually be a two-edged sword affecting the requirements, nature, and success of many important aspects of SOA, especially runtime governance. The success of any SOA requires that one must gain an understanding of the true nature, performance characteristics, and availability of the business transactions that flows in real-time through these highly distributed services and their supporting IT infrastructure. This session will emphasize practical considerations that impact SOA architects, security managers, application support personnel, and designers so that you can be prepared to deliver a verifiably reliable and successful SOA, and can effectively remediate SOA failures and risks in real-time.

Service-oriented architectures (SOAs) have evolved over the past few years out of the original vision of loosely coupled web services replacing constrained, stovepiped applications throughout enterprise IT. Every major enterprise technology vendor today has developed its own SOA strategy, supported by innumerable mid-size companies and start-ups offering specific SOA aspects or entire solutions. This explosive growth in SOA technology is in response to a global demand--IDC estimates that spending on SOA services alone will grow from $8.6 billion to more than $33 billion by 2010.
 
SOA World Conference & Expo
SOA World Conference & Expo 2007 brings together the best minds in the business to San Francisco for a two-day conference that offers comprehensive coverage of SOA and what it means to enterprise IT today.

Attend SOA World Conference & Expo 2007 West and learn from more than 100 speakers about how SOA is transforming business--and the way IT and business managers think about their businesses, processes, and technology.
