Next Generation SOA Drill-Down: Understanding Modern Service Technologies & Practices

Thomas Erl

October 14, 2010. 4 Hour Workshop

Next generation SOA represents the convergence of mature SOA practices with modern service technology advances. This important milestone in the evolution of service-oriented computing marks a time during which the potential to build robust, sophisticated and inherently flexible service-oriented solutions has never been greater. However, to realize this potential requires a clear understanding of how to best leverage modern-day SOA. For example:
  • How (and to what extent) should new SOA practices be applied when building service-oriented solutions?
  • Which modern service technologies (Cloud-based or otherwise) should used and which should be avoided (and why)?
  • What is service-orientation and why is it important to SOA?
  • What is the SOA Manifesto and how is it relevant when working with modern service technologies?
Join the world’s top-selling SOA author for this fast-paced and in-depth workshop that explores next generation SOA by identifying key challenges and opportunities and stepping attendees through a diverse range of vital considerations, issues, and recommendations. Each workshop attendee will receive a complimentary SOA Certified Professional Self-Study Kit valued at $399 USD. See also information about Thomas Erl’s Keynote
