Webinar Slides

Any given business, organization or entity is built with resources. It can be human capital, digital assets, services or products among other things. These activities often interact with each other creating a value network. A good example of this is when human resources interact with digital assets to perform a service. We as computer scientists, have been trying to simplify this interaction flow for quite some time.

The field of distributed systems and semantic web are dedicated to solving problems in this domain. RESTful services and the ecosystem around it have now simplified this interaction to a great level. Being able to interact with a resource with basic actions in a secure manner is a great achievement.

This webinar will discuss

  • The of history of ROA
  • Its current landscape
  • ROA and microservices
  • New development around the architecture pattern
