High on the agenda of many organisations is the integration of their vast number of isolated information systems. The integration technologies are based on XML, (web) services, and other standards: the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). SOA will become the backbone of many IT departments and with that it will become the information backbone of organisations themselves. All information exchange will pass through this architecture.
Due to mergers, new regulations and market changes, companies are looking at what SOA could mean for them. For some, SOA will be the basis for the automation of business processes. Others see it as a means to gradually remove their legacy systems, and others see it as a means to transform their organisation into an agile organisation - one that can adapt quicker to market changes and opportunities.
Day 1 of this seminar presents an in-depth overview of the products and the technologies that are available today to develop SOA. Day 2 will describe the crucial guidelines when designing SOA. It is based on experiences gained at several SOA projects. Delegates have the option of attending Day 1 or Day 2 only or both days.
