Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) enables flexible, dynamic connectivity of applications, systems and resources by building loosely coupled, reusable services with standardized interfaces to support structured information exchange. This allows new, existing and legacy applications to adapt to the dynamically changing business needs. SOA increases ROI significantly by reducing integration costs, lowering business risks, increasing business agility and maximizing asset reuse. Measuring and articulating the ROI from SOA can be challenging to Business and IT leaders and requires and in-depth understanding of several aspects of the business benefits of SOA.

    Attendees will benefit by learning about the following:
  • The evolution of SOA
  • Pre- and Post-SOA Architectures: "Silos and Spaghetti Oriented" versus "Service Oriented" Architectures
  • The paradigm shift and challenges facing businesses today
  • Complete lifecycle approach to SOA
  • From tactical to strategic ROI
  • The role of governance and management in ROI
  • ROI from multiple perspectives
  • Multi-dimensional ROI

You are invited to join Sun Microsystems and SilverTrain to take an in-depth look at how you can maximize your ROI from SOA. SilverTrain's Pradipa Karbhari will provide you with the information you need to make educated decisions for your company's SOA initiative.
