WS SIG (SV): Web Services in the Enterprise
Come and hear Roman Bukary speak on
David Nielsen, President - Persistent Web Technologies
Mobile Enterprise Services
In this presentation Roman Bukary, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Talaris, will share his company's experience developing an enterprise service procurement application, leveraging user-centric Web services, and will address how they are approaching the associated issues of security, quality of service and integration. He will also describe the experience of using SunONE as a platform and SOAP and XML as the communication delivery standards.
Talaris provides a services procurement application that leverages Web services, and which leading corporations like Sun and GetThere are already deploying to their mobile workforces in order to cut costs and increase productivity. Using its Web services platform, Talaris connects more than 120,000 suppliers, regardless of existing infrastructure (SOAP, proprietary APIs, or structured email), to corporate employees in a localized, personal and device-independent way. With Talaris, every business user can procure, coordinate and schedule business, travel and personal services through an always-on solution, using a standard Web browser or voice interface.
Web Services on the Desktop
OK, you have put together a SOAP web service, but how do you deliver that web service to your business-user's existing application screen without any modifications to the application front-end? Vipin Samar, CEO of MyBubble, will demonstrate the MyBubble user-centric solution that "bubbles-up" your SOAP web services and portlets on every Windows desktop application such as enterprise application screens, browsers, MS Office and even on email. For example, users viewing accounts receivable data on Oracle Financials, SAP or intranet portal, can now directly access web services that present additional information such as invoice information and credit history. This information is presented within a pop-up bubble on user's existing application, and as a result the web services no longer have to be programmed to a specific page or application.
Vipin will also talk about their Web Services Community effort. He would demonstrate their MyBubble Studio with which the community members can convert their web-services into bubble services in less than a couple of minutes.
