    Presentation Overview

    Employing Web Services for Real-time Internet and Enterprise Data Integration

    XML Web Services technology has been advocated as the next generation solution for enterprise application integration. It has been mostly emphasized for use in a corporate IT infrastructure, or between corporate business partners who need to share data.

    This presentation will focus on and demonstrate its usefulness within an ASP (hosted) solution. The most daunting question that customers of the Lenos platform (and any other hosted solution) face is “how to get the data being collected within the hosted platform integrated with their other applications, running within their corporate network.” A practical example will be illustrated to highlight the power of XML Web Services to enable a relatively painless but secure process in achieving that objective. Furthermore, Web Services can enable data transfer in both directions, achieving true integration (and almost real-time synchronization).

    From a different perspective, use of XML Web Services to architect its product platform can give an ASP solution provider a huge competitive edge. Two examples from the Lenos architecture will be used to illustrate this unique advantage.

    SODA - The Emerging Model for Application Development

    Catch a glimpse of the future of application development over a slice of pizza. A new class of development tools must emerge to meet the demands of the new service-oriented model of application development driven by the adoption of Web services. Gartner, the world's leading technology research firm, calls ISEs (Integrated SODA Environments) the "next generation of application development platforms for building composite applications" that "will affect every application development organization."

    ISEs represent a fusion of the tangle of design tools, IDEs, frameworks, and deployment servers that are used in the development process. In this meeting, Semyon will present an overview of ISE functionality as well as a tour through a leading .NET ISE, the WebPutty Application Platform. We'll take a look under the covers of SODA, including building a complete .NET and Web services application, and discuss how and when to use an ISE. This is a technical conversation; led by development managers for WebPutty, so bring plenty of questions!

    You will have an opportunity to evaluate how ISEs provide an easier way to build .NET applications that utilize SQL Server and Web Services -- without requiring .NET expertise. Developers use a declarative design environment to define databases, logic, and UI, and the WebPutty ISE automatically creates a full .NET application. Infrastructure and integration code are automatically created and optimized. Despite the transparent automation of most routine web development tasks, visual models give developers full visibility and control of their applications.
