Creating Value from Service-Oriented Architecture: A New Paradigm for IT

In today’s business environment, agencies continually face increasing demands to reduce the cost of operations while responding to new requirements, laws and policies. On the other hand, IT organizations struggle to maintain application systems designed for an earlier era and lack resources to implement new applications. How can these two imperatives be reconciled?

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a new paradigm for IT that preserves the value of existing systems while adapting to new business needs. Organizations can extend the life of their main business applications yet achieve greater flexibility and, in the long run, lower the costs of supporting IT systems. Experts from Forrester Research, Microsoft, and Sierra Systems will explain why this is important for your organization and present practical experience for adopting Service-Oriented Architecture.

Topics covered include: 

  • SOA Overview
  • The advantages and risks of SOA
  • Successful case studies of SOA adoption
  • Adopting SOA best practices and lessons learned
