Dr Richard Mark Soley Will Speak in NYC in June About "Making the SOA Leap"

The SOA Consortium announced that Sun Microsystems has joined as a Sponsor. The SOA Consortium is an advocacy group of end users, service providers and technology vendors committed to helping the Global 1000, major government agencies, and mid-market businesses successfully adopt Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) by 2010. Sun Microsystems joins sponsors Cisco, IBM Corporation, SAP AG and Sparx Systems.

SOA Consortium Sponsors are industry leaders dedicated to helping this SOA advocacy group promote the value and attainment of business-driven SOA, develop a lively community of practice, and get the message out that SOA is an important business strategy.

“As a leader in open source enterprise class software, Sun is focused on delivering highly scalable, secure products at commodity based prices,” said Bill Vass, president and COO of Sun Microsystems Federal, Inc. “Sun is pleased to be an advocate for the SOA Consortium and the important work it does in moving the industry toward a distributed service oriented enterprise environment, based on open standards.”

“The SOA Consortium is pleased to welcome Sun Microsystems as a Sponsor and participant, especially as they have helped to spark the SOA revolution not only in the commercial sector, but in the US Federal Government,” said Richard Mark Soley, Ph.D., executive director, SOA Consortium. “Through their sponsorship, Sun is continuing to show their market leadership for business-driven adoption of SOA, supporting the ROI of SOA investments and helping the SOA Consortium in its mission to educate the marketplace on SOA as a winning business strategy for all organizations, including government agencies.”

Together, SOA Consortium members are:

  • Redirecting the industry conversation to “business-driven SOA”
  • Exchanging real-world insights on preparing their business and IT organizations for SOA
  • Influencing technology vendors and service providers on the techniques, products and services to derive business value from SOA
  • Influencing standards-organizations on pragmatic standards related to SOA

Making the SOA Leap by Dr Richard Mark Soley - Executive Director of the SOA Consortium

SOA continues to be the hottest buzzword in 2008. But just what is it that’s valuable about the move to SOA? And how can your IT organization make the leap, and make the leap valuable to your business? In this keynote, Richard Mark Soley, Executive Director of the SOA Consortium will show how the Consortium is making great strides in defining SOA to be a valuable business strategy for business agility, taking advantage of Enterprise Architecture, Business Process Management and other concepts. He will also share some of the experience gained from the SOA Consortium's Summit discussions with CIOs, CTOs and Chief Enterprise Architects who have results to share from refocusing their lines of business around recognizable, reusable and optimizable business processes

SOA By the Numbers by David Linthicum

While everyone wants to do SOA right the first time, the typical results are not always stellar. This keynote, by well-respected industry veteran David Linthicum, is a must-attend for those looking to get SOA right the first time. The pitfalls of building any complex architecture, including SOA, are something that the SOA practitioners must contend with, and most are ill-equipped. In this keynote presentation Linthicum will take the mystery out of SOA requirements, design, and implementation - not just by providing hype-driven concepts, but a step-by-step approach for building an SOA that works each and every time, no matter how complex or simplistic the problem domain, business issues, or technology solution.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
