Doors Open For First SOA Data Integration Architect Community, Co-Chaired by SOA Visionary David Linthicum


Informatica Corporation announced the launch of the SOA Data Integration Architect Community (SDIAC), the first open and free community focused on the value of data integration and data services in agile architectures such as Service Oriented Architectures (SOA).

ebizQ received the following:

As enterprises across all industries grapple with creating data architectures capable of delivering timely, trustworthy data as a service, SDIAC provides a one-of-a-kind forum for all key players and partners in this endeavor, such as enterprise architects, application architects, solution architects, IT architects, and IT managers with enterprise architecture stakes and responsibilities.

SDIAC is co-chaired by author and industry expert David Linthicum, one of the world's foremost authorities on SOA, enterprise integration, cloud computing and data services. He will help lead the community in conjunction with a charter group of architects and other experts from leading enterprises, all of whom possess extensive real-world experience with SOA and enterprise, application and data integration.

Although now solidly in the IT mainstream, agile architectures such as SOA frequently fail to effectively manage and maintain data assets across the enterprise due to the complex data integration challenges involved. In response, SDIAC provides a unique and open social networking environment for architects to interact with peers and thought-leaders; share challenges, innovations and best practices; and showcase successes relating to data integration and data services within agile architectures.

As part of its mission, SDIAC will host regular webinars led by charter members, blogs by leading experts, and ongoing discussions as well as providing a showcase for case studies and a repository of best practices and reference architectures. SDIAC members are also invited to participate in an annual Informatica Architect Forum, which will debut at the company's annual user conference, Informatica World 2010, Washington, DC, November 2-4, 2010.

"Having built numerous technologies, implemented solutions and written books on EAI, ESB, SOA and enterprise architecture over the years, I believe that there is a fundamental problem with the way enterprise architecture is approached," says Linthicum. "Very often, enterprise architectures pay too much attention to gluing together the latest and greatest technologies, ignoring the most foundational element - the data - until it's too late. I have accepted the role of chairing the SOA Data Integration Architect Community, as it gives me the rare opportunity to collaborate with industry architects to raise awareness about the right way to build enterprise architectures."

Still others say that Enterprise 2.0 is all of these things. Learn More
