Information is one of the most important enterprise resources. Government agencies face increasing challenges to more effectively leverage, integrate and share information. Businesses face increasing volatility, complexity and risk from changing tenets of globalization, which generate greater demands for information. Both face the overwhelming challenge of protecting information while at the same time making it more available. In an increasingly information-centric, collaboration-dependent world, success depends on the ability to integrate, move and use data confidently and securely. This Webinar will discuss how SOA can help both public and private enterprises achieve the delicate balance between making information available and keeping it secure.

Benefits of attending this Webinar:

  • Learn the benefits of an information-centric organization
  • Understand how to protect information while leveraging it to increase value
  • Learn how SOA can help you optimize performance
