WSO2 SOA Workshop offers proven approaches for successfully implementing service oriented architectures

One-Day Workshop Featuring WSO2 SOA Experts and Guest Speaker Miko Matsumara Offers IT Professionals Real-World Best Practices for Enabling Secure, Interoperable SOAs Internally and in the Cloud

Mountain View, CA – February 22, 2010 – Enterprise IT professionals recognize the value of a service-oriented architecture (SOA) for enabling new business applications with existing infrastructure, 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—particularly in the financial services sector, and more recently with questions on how to securely extend SOAs to the cloud.

Now enterprise IT architects and software developers who attend the WSO2 SOA Workshop can learn proven, pragmatic and affordable approaches for successfully implementing SOAs locally and via cloud computing, as well as avoiding common SOA project pitfalls. The one-day workshop will be held Thursday, February 25, at the Downtown Conference Center at Pace University in New York, and it will run 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. The cost is only $125 per person to attend.

Proven Practices 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 enterprise service bus (ESB) SOA practices; SOA security; 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.

Leading the workshop will be 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 Asanka Abeysinghe, WSO2 SOA solutions architect and financial services implementation expert. Joining them is special guest speaker, Miko Matsumara, founder and organizer of the SOA Link Interoperability Initiative; author of “SOA Adoption for Dummies,” published by John Wiley and Sons; and widely recognized for his SOA leadership at Software AG and webMethods.
