SOA Consortium Forms for SOA Advocacy

02/13/2007

The SOA Consortium(tm) is announcing the formation of a new advocacy group of end users, service providers and technology vendors committed to helping the Global 1000 successfully adopt Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) by 2010. Participants include Avis Budget Car Rental, Bank of America, CellExchange, Inc., HP, Integration Consortium, Object Management Group, WebEx Communications and founding sponsors BEA Systems, Inc., Cisco, IBM Corporation, and SAP AG.



ebizQ received the following details:

The SOA Consortium mission, strategies and tactics center on the following premises:

  • Service-oriented architecture adoption is a key enabler for the 21st century enterprise


  • Achieving the benefits of service-oriented architecture requires significant changes for both IT and business executives


  • Service-oriented architecture is perceived by business executives as an IT integration and productivity story, rather than a business agility story


  • Enterprise SOA practitioners would greatly benefit from a vibrant practitioner community to drive local, business-driven, SOA success, and to spur broader enterprise, and industry-wide, SOA adoption.



A series of SOA Consortium CIO Summits is planned for February 27th in New York City, New York, February 28th in Dallas, Texas and March 1st in San Francisco, California. The Summits are by invitation only, and will include CIOs and senior-level IT executives. The Summits will include a presentation on the vision, mission and goals of the new SOA Consortium, to be followed by a highly interactive session to validate that mission.

Results of these discussions will be incorporated into a detailed report, which will validate and direct the charter of the SOA Consortium. A webcast and online question and answer session will be held after the Summits to report the findings to the general public.

Some use the term Enterprise 2.0 exclusively to describe the use of social networking technologies in the enterprise, while others use it to describe a web economy platform, or the technological framework behind such a platform. Still others say that Enterprise 2.0 is all of these things. Learn More
