However, as an SOA becomes the backbone for more of an enterprise’s processes, it needs to enable IT and business users to collaborate more effectively in responding to changing business needs and conditions.

Additionally, attendees will learn state-of-the-art techniques for visualizing data and using analytics, business intelligence and key performance indicator (KPI) tracking to help make timely decisions.
