To ensure a competitive advantage companies today need to allow processes to interconnect easily in a flexible infrastructure based on business needs. Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is therefore an ideal approach for the modern enterprise if properly managed and secured, it can provide the reliability and interoperability that is crucial to the open ended data flow that is needed to help companies succeed in this technologically driven economy.

To fully benefit from SOA, companies need to employ the right metrics and be consistent in their use. In the near future, as organizations increase the flexibility and responsiveness of their business processes by directly interoperating with their suppliers, customers, and other partners, the SOA approach will become indispensable.

Speakers at this event will demonstrate:

* How SOA relates/compares with other IT approaches (e.g., EA, BPM, BRE, MDA, EDA, etc.)?
* What is the real value added to business and how does it improve ROI?
* What is the impact (and relationship) of SOA with component/process reuse, model-driven engineering, Web Services vs. MQ/EAI vs. DW/EII vs Workflows/Portals?
* The key success factors for SOA in the short vs. long run?
