Cloud computing is rapidly becoming one of the most important parts of a company’s IT investment strategy. Cloud computing and SOA are both highly relevant to today’s enterprise, and are also highly synergetic. This presentation uses a set of real-world examples to highlight the alignment between SOA and cloud computing initiatives, and the ways in which companies can benefit from the synergies between them with effective cloud and SOA programs and solutions.Read more >
Shifting IT from delivering monolithic applications towards delivering a flexible series of business services is not simply about technology it is about changing the way that people think and act throughout the IT delivery cycle. This presentation talks about how taking a business centric view to SOA and looking at governance as a business change problem will deliver both the transformation and the benefits required. If you want your IT estate to look like the business, act like the business and deliver value in-line with business then Business SOA Governance is part of your transformation journey.Read more >
The movement to cloud computing is the disruptive change that IT departments will soon face as SOA and cloud computing begin to have an effect on the modern enterprise. IT managers must learn how to give as well as take information in this new, shareable environment, while still protecting their company’s interests. Innovative companies will take advantage of these new resources, such as cloud computing, and reinvent themselves as unstoppable forces in their markets. Those who don’t take advantage of this revolution will become quickly outdated, perhaps out of business. This presentation is your first step toward understanding the issues you will face as cloud computing and SOA converge, and how to open the company gates to nurture this IT Renaissance while still keeping the barbarians at bay.Read more >
Smart Cities is one of the essential endeavours right now. Smart Cities use many existing and emerging information technologies, Smart Cities must change lives of many people and each Smart Cities programme and project is a daunting task. Therefore Smart Cities must be considered as a system which perfectly delivers its desired capabilities.
This presentation will discuss how several modern techniques, such as systems approach, standardisation, reference architecture, patterns, explicit security, can be combined to enable world-wide cooperation and coordination in delivery of various Smart Cities.

Struggling to govern your services, monitor quality of service, and enforce policies and contracts? Whether you have 5 services or 500, without the right governance strategy you’re flying blind. With more services moving to the cloud, an increasingly diverse set of consumers, and the desire to expose services via APIs, the challenges are only growing.
Join Mateo Almenta Reca, MuleSoft Director of Product Management, to learn how leading organizations are overcoming these challenges using the upcoming Anypoint Service Registry solution from MuleSoft. Mateo will also deliver a live demo of the solution.
Topics to be discussed include:
Governing a mix of legacy and modern service assets

Consistently enforcing policies and contracts
Shielding consumers from change
Laying the foundation for your API management strategy
Effective governance is a critical element in fostering a successful service oriented architecture (SOA) initiative. SOA governance directs the SOA initiative and helps ensure that it delivers value to the business. Unfortunately, numerous interviews with Burton Group clients reveal that many organizations don’t know which aspects of the SOA initiative to govern or how best to govern them. This session presents a framework for developing a SOA governance program.Read more >

Many service oriented architecture (SOA) initiatives have stalled or failed. And prospects for SOA look bleak in 2009. Most organizations have cut funding for their SOA initiatives. Except in rare situations, SOA has failed to deliver its promised benefits. It's time to face reality: the term "SOA" now carries too much baggage. It's time to declare that SOA is dead and move on to the more practical matter of bringing up its offspring. SOA's untimely demise is tragic, but, fortunately, many aspects of SOA live on-particularly in the form of services. Services provide the fundamental building blocks that enable software as a service (SaaS), cloud computing, and business process management (BPM). This Catalyst track will examine the myths and misconceptions that derailed SOA efforts, provide guidance for salvaging value, and supply actionable direction for future efforts.
Face it. Your SOA initiative has failed. So where do you go from here?
There is broadspectrum agreement that a major component for success in building against a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is defining the governance over that SOA. However, there is little agreement on what that governance looks like and how to go about establishing. Meanwhile, ITILv3 has been released and is a monumental step forward from ITILv2 and focused on service lifecycles. Thus, ITILv3 may represent the necessary foundation for SOA governance upon which everyone can agree.Read more >
Cloud computing needs SOA governance to be successful. If you think about it, at the end state of our architecture we’ll have thousands of services and data elements under management, and thus need to control how they are accessed, added, deleted, and altered. Therefore, we need an approach, processes, procedures, and technology, and that’s called governance. In the world of enterprise architecture, governance means control, or to mandate the use of standards and approaches, almost a management concept. In the world of SOA , simply put, governance means designing, building, testing, and implementing policies for services, and monitoring their use.Read more >
Service Oriented Architectures offers incredible potential value to the business that is able to reuse and repurpose key business logic and business rules. By creating business services, companies can institute best practices throughout the organization. However, this approach has to be done carefully. Business Services need to be managed and governed based on corporate rules as well as governmental rules and regulations. Because of the shared services model of SOA the potential for propagating the wrong business rule broadly can be devastating to the business. This session will provide an overview of best business practices for governing a Service Oriented Architecture approach to computing.Read more >

To achieve growth, insurance firms must move from multiple isolated applications to service-based integration. Systems such as billing management, policy management and claims management must be made extensible to support new applications. By doing so, firms can augment existing distribution channels and capture new business; more deeply serve and engage their customer; and develop new products to address market whitespaces.
The net effect is better customer acquisition, retention and profitability.
We will discuss:
• Utilizing a lightweight SOA Integration to promote business growth
• Examples of how to implement SaaS Integration
• Use cases about how APIs are transforming enterprises?
