Presentation: "Three SOA case studies - Understanding what to use - where"

Time: Wednesday 15:45 - 16:45

Location: St. James's Suite

Abstract: One of the problems with the overall SOA vision is that developers have been overwhelmed by the number of standards, the approaches and the technologies available. In this talk Paul Fremantle will talk through three case studies, showing how three organizations chose to use SOA technologies successfully to create value and solve real problems. In the talk, Paul will dive into the technology decisions they made and look at the resulting systems to analyse the benefits and potential disadvantages of those choices. The case studies include both small and large organizations, using SOA in quite different scenarios. One case study will examine the use of an Event based architecture to integrate large entrenched legacy systems, while another looks at a new organization using SOA and Mashups to provide management with timely information.
