WSO2 featured in podcast on data services as catalyst for SOA

Podcast brings together Interarbor, RedMonk and WSO2 to discuss role of Data Services in enabling SOA and new cloud-based data hosting models

Mountain View, CA – August 11, 2008 – Paul Fremantle, WSO2 CTO, is featured in a new podcast titled “Data Services Provide Catalyst for SOA and Set Stage for New Cloud-Based Data Hosting Models.” The WSO2-sponsored podcast was published today by Dana Gardner, founder of IT research firm Interarbor Solutions, and author of Dana Gardner’s BriefingsDirect blog on Joining Fremantle and Gardner is James Governor, a principal analyst and founder at RedMonk.

Fremantle, Gardner and Governor discuss how implementing a service-oriented architecture (SOA) is enabling an expansive reach for data, and how this will relate to the development of cloud infrastructures and services. They also examine what technologies and approaches organizations will need to federate and integrate these data sources, services and hosts—without additional risk. Finally, they look at the opportunities to bridge the risk reduction and larger availability of data by using open-source software.
