Web-Oriented Architecture (WOA)

Thursday, September 10, 2015
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM (PDT)
Webinar Slides

Is SOA the answer to everything? Perhaps not. Web oriented architecture (WOA) or SOA + WWW + REST, takes you several steps further by filling the blanks of SOA and helping you build an end-to-end complete web application. In addition to APIs, WOA identifies user interfaces and application state as first-class components of an architecture. Most of what we build today is actually WOA, though the abbreviation might not be that popular.

This session will discuss

  • The original definition of WOA by Gartner in 2006
  • The changes to WOA over the last 10 years
  • Today’s trends
  • WOA-Stack
