Setting the Stage: ZapThink Analysts
Just what does it take to make an SOA reliable? And what do we mean by reliable? It’s not just about runtime reliability in making sure that a message gets from point A to point B — we’ve been doing that for decades now. Reliability means that the architecture works as planned, that design happens as we intend, and that unplanned changes don’t wreck the architecture. Learn from two very experienced guest experts about how to insure reliability in your SOA!

Guest Expert: Avrami Tzur, Senior Director SOA Strategy, Mercury
IT organizations are turning to Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to enable business process reconfiguration, accelerate new product introductions and streamline operations. A successful SOA transformation, however, cannot happen in isolation within IT. Service Oriented Enterprises (SOEs) must adopt the SOA paradigm not only as a means for integrating and delivering systems but also as a business principle for achieving business goals and objectives. Avrami Tzur will show how SOA initiatives require a cohesive set of diciplines that are aligned with business strategy and SOA best practices
