Beth Gold-Bernstein Series: Reducing Complexity and Cost Through Standards-Based Integration

Sponsored By:

IONA Technologies

Ron Schmelzer, the leading industry analyst from ZapThink will provide advice, based on real-life experience, on how SOI addresses an organization’s integration needs by advantageously leveraging heterogeneity while creating an agile architecture for the future. SOI represents a fundamental change in the way companies architect IT assets. It enables organizations to expose functionality as loosely-coupled, coarse-grained, standards-based, and process-driven services. This webinar will also offer an overview of IONA’s recently announced Artix family of enterprise-class SOI solutions. IONA has been a leader on component-based systems for over a decade. Tune into this webinar to learn how SOI has helped companies reduce IT costs and increase business agility.

Find out how Service-Oriented Integration can help you:
  • Leverage and extend existing IT investments
  • Seamlessly connect disparate systems
  • Reduce project costs


Title: Solving Today's Integratijon Challenges While Providing for Tomorrow's Felxibility and Agility Needs
Author: Ronald Schmelzer, ZapThink
Publish Date: November 2003

Today’s IT organizations grapple with a world of discrete, heterogeneous systems that need to integrate with each other in order to accomplish significant business tasks. The challenges of integration combined with the opportunities posed by XML, Service-Oriented Architectures, and the Internet have combined to provide a new class of solution for integration: Service-Oriented Integration (SOI). While an SOI solution can address short-term integration needs, it also creates an architectural approach for continuous IT value. Such an architecture helps companies get more value out of existing resources, by componentizing legacy applications, enabling system migration, application reuse, and consolidation of application functionality.
