In a world of rapidly evolving enterprise landscapes the ability to adapt to changing business needs is more crucial than ever. Service Oriented Architecture is not only able to facilitate this but is also allowing organisations to standardise and unify business processes and align IT architecture with business drivers.

While many appreciate the theoretical benefits that are offered by SOA and web services they have either struggled to realise this potential or have resisted re-designing their architecture because of the perceived risks and costly overheads. However organisations that have successfully implemented SOA in conjunction with refining business processes are not only seeing direct benefits of agility, standardisation and interoperability, but are shaping their architecture to comply with the demands of the foreseeable future.

This conference will tackle both the strategic and technical aspects of designing and building components of a SOA and web services that will produce tangible business gains. It will also demonstrate measures that your organisation can take to identify and minimise associated risks. Topics to be explored include:

• Adopting SOA as a support tool for business processes
• Identifying services that will benefit your organisation
• Building services capable of achieving the desired results
• Evaluating whether to include an Enterprise Service Bus in your SOA
• Adopting and conforming to appropriate standards
• Appreciating the significance of Enterprise Architecture in a successful SOA
