Guest Expert: Ardy Franssen, Product Management, Seagull Software
Ardy will show companies how they can leverage investments in their mainframes and other legacy systems in SOA. Companies have billions of dollars and hours of time invested in their existing business logic. Through SOA, companies can continue to realize value from these existing investments using standards-based integration to create reusable components from legacy business functions. Learn how to SOA-enable your legacy applications without altering any of the existing code.
