Tomorrow, the 21st, I have the privilege of teaming up with Gartner's L. Frank Kenney and FusionWare's Al Davis for a special Webcast at 1:30 pm Eastern Time. We'll be talking about integration, 2005 style, and why it doesn't have to be complex, expensive or invasive.
I'll be talking about the experiences of two companies -- one an online provider that deals with external data, the other a heavy-duty manufacturing operation attempting to pull data out of ancient stovepiped systems.
When we talk about low-budget, low-footprint application and data integration, we can't help but talk about Web services and SOA. Integration of applications and data is the far and away the main appeal to implementing the specs and standards.
Once again, I hope you all can tune in!
