WSO2 “Pragmatic SOA” Workshop Presents Proven Lean Middleware Approaches for Implementing Service-Oriented Architectures

One-Day Workshops in Sydney and Canberra Offer IT Professionals Real-World Best Practices for Designing and Deploying Secure, Scalable SOAs Internally and in the Cloud Sydney and Canberra, Australia – August 3, 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.

The popular WSO2 “Pragmatic SOA Workshop” on how to address these SOA challenges comes to Australia on two dates:

  • Sydney, August 10, at the Amora Hotel, featuring special guest speaker, Paul O’Connor, CTO of ANATAS, one of Australia’s leading enterprise management and technology consulting firms.
  • Canberra, August 12, at the Novotel Canberra.

Enterprise IT architects and software developers who attend can learn proven approaches for successfully implementing SOAs—whether server-based or in the cloud—and avoiding common SOA project pitfalls. Each one-day workshop will run 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. The cost is only AU$150 per person to attend.

Pragmatic Approaches for Successful SOAs

Leading the workshop will be SOA experts Samisa Abeysinghe , WSO2 vice president of engineering, and Asanka Abeysinghe , WSO2 director of solutions architecture. They will provide SOA Workshop attendees with 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 anti-patterns that don’t. Additional sessions will dive into the new role of the enterprise service bus (ESB) in SOAs; practical SOA governance; business-facing SOAs through business process management (BPM), dashboards, and business activity monitoring (BAM); and how cloud computing can fit within an SOA.
