WSO2 “Pragmatic SOA” Workshop presents proven lean middleware approaches for implementing service-oriented architectures

One-Day San Francisco Workshop Offers IT Professionals Real-World Best Practices for Designing and Deploying Secure, Scalable SOAs Internally and in the Cloud

Mountain View, CA – April 7, 2010 – Enterprise IT professionals recognize the value of a service-oriented architecture (SOA) for enabling new business applications, more effectively interacting with partners and customers, and responding to changing market conditions with greater agility. However, real-world SOA implementations are often stalled by integration complexity, risk mitigation concerns, and more recently with questions on how to effectively extend SOAs to the cloud.

By attending the WSO2 Pragmatic SOA Workshop, enterprise IT architects and software developers can learn proven approaches for successfully implementing SOAs and avoiding common SOA project pitfalls. Attendees also will gain insights into eliminating redundancy and complexity with lean, modular middleware and best practices for server-based and cloud SOA deployments. The one-day workshop will be held Wednesday, April 21, at the Nikko Hotel in San Francisco, CA; it will run 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. The cost is only $150 per perso'n to attend.

Pragmatic Approaches for Successful SOAs

SOA Workshop attendees will gain an overall understanding of SOA concepts and approaches to implementing end-to-end SOA solutions, as well as review which enterprise SOA architecture patterns work effectively—and which don’t. Additional sessions will dive into modern enterprise service bus (ESB) SOA practices; business-facing SOAs through business process management (BPM), dashboards, and business activity monitoring (BAM); SOA governance; and how cloud computing can fit within an SOA.

San Francisco kicks off the 2010 global series of WSO2 SOA Workshops. Other cities include Frankfurt, June 16; London, July 15; Sydney, August 10; Canberra, Australia, August, 12; Washington, DC, September 28; Los Angeles, November 10; and New York, December 7.

Leading the workshop will be SOA experts Paul Fremantle, award-winning WSO2 co-founder and CTO, chairman of the OASIS Web Services Reliable Exchange Technical Committee (WS-RX), and vice president of Apache Synapse; and Jonathan Marsh, vice president of business development, who has served on many W3C standards Working Groups and OASIS Technical Committees in the XML and Web Services area, including as chair of the W3C Web Services Description Language (WSDL) Working Group.
