Are you part of a successful SOA deployment, and would like to share some details with the rest of the world? The world wants to hear from you.
Organizers say the competition is open to organizations of all sizes, including government agencies, which have successfully delivered business or mission value using the SOA approach.
Similar to the inaugural contest in 2008, the goal of the SOA Case Study Competition is to highlight business success stories and lessons learned to provide proof points and insights for other organizations considering or pursuing SOA adoption. To qualify for the competition, the SOA project must be complete with demonstrated business results.
Entries will be judged on the complexity of the business problem addressed, the ROI/Business Value achieved (agility/innovation/flexibility/optimization/resilience), the level and sophistication of cross-organizational collaboration (business/technical), the usage of SOA approaches and supporting technology and lessons learned. In addition to one overall inner, organizations will be recognized by industry/government.
SOA Case Study Competition winners will be announced at the SOA Consortium meeting in San Antonio, Texas on September 16, 2009 and will be featured on the SOA Consortium Website and in a fall issue of CIO magazine and on CIO.com in September. Submissions will be accepted through June 26, 2009.
