Conference alert: let's make SOA work for a living

Welcome to Service Oriented Architecture, Phase 2. It's bigger, It's badder, it's all business.
Written by Joe McKendrick, Contributing Writer on

Welcome to Service Oriented Architecture, Phase 2. It's bigger, It's badder, it's all business.  None of this namby-pamby JBOWs stuff. None of these SOAPY-REST tantrums. SOA is all grown up now, and it's time it starts earning the bacon.

I am serving as conference chair and emcee for ebizQ's upcoming "SOA in Action" virtual conference, scheduled for October 28th and 29th, and want to share some of highlights with you.

I will be joined by a number of leading industry figures in various sessions and panel discussions, including Forrester's Randy Heffner, Software AG's governance guru Miko Matsumura, Web Oriented Architecture guru Dion Hinchcliffe (also a rock star here at the ZDNet community), Gartner's Yefim Natis, captain of the cloud Dave Linthicum, and US Department of Defense CIO Dan Risacher. The conference will be capped by a joint session featuring Gartner's Roy Schulte and CalTech's Mani Chandy.

Some author notes: Roy Schulte and Mani Chandy have just published a new work on event processing, Event Processing: Designing IT Systems for Agile Companies. Dave Linthicum has just published his latest book, Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence in Your Enterprise: A Step-by-Step Guide.

Topics to be discussed include organizational and governance issues, "selling" SOA's value to the business is more difficult in today's economy, ROI, complex event processing, and cloud computing.
