WS SIG (SF): The Missing Pieces of Web Services
Doug Kaye, Technology-Management Consultant, Author & Lecturer
Where is today's sweet spot of web-services technologies? In this two-part presentation, Doug Kaye will first discuss the technolgies that aren't yet ready for prime time: security, transactions, reliable asynchronous messaging, orchestration and choreography, QoS, contracts and other business issues, infrastructure, and the big one: industry-specific semantics. In the second part, Doug will explain why this may not be the time to embark on complex projects, and show you how to determine optimum project start dates.
About the Presenter
Doug Kaye is a technology-management consultant, author, and lecturer based in Marin County. His most recent book, Loosely Coupled-The Missing Pieces of Web Services, has been called a must-read for web-services strategic thinkers. Drawing upon nearly three decades of experience in the roles of CEO and CTO, Kaye spends much of his time communicating technology concepts to business executives and business issues to technologists. He literally wrote the book on web hosting: Strategies for Web Hosting and Managed Services (2002), considered by many customers and vendors alike to be the definitive resource of the high-end web-hosting industry. He also produces IT Conversations (a series of downloadable and streaming audio interviews), publishes the IT Strategy Letter (an electronic newsletter), and has been a frequent contributor to Internet World and The Web Host Industry Review. In recent years, Kaye's stints have included executive positions with Organic Online, goodcompany.com, and NextMonet.com.
