WS SIG (SF): The Service-Oriented Enterprise
The Monthly Meeting of the SF Web Services SIG
Brent Sleeper, Principal and Co-founder of the Stencil Group
Innovative IT and business executives have recognized that service-oriented architecture and federated models of IT governance have changed the economics of business process integration. These efforts leverage web services standards and flexible, shared infrastructure to make the promise of ubiquitous enterprise integration a reality. This presentation examines the business drivers of this architectural shift in enterprise software and discusses the lessons of the emerging "service-oriented enterprise."
