The Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is the dominant architectural style for packaging, distributing and invoking discrete functions today. Companies investing in SOA typically expect to get better flexibility, agility and re-use from their SOA investments. But adopting SOA as an architectural style does not ensure that a company will realize competitive advantage in their business. IT groups must have a plan for linking SOA to business imperatives.

Please join Gartner and Lombardi Software to learn how to connect your SOA initiative to key business priorities from the top down using Business Process Management (BPM). Attendees will learn about how SOA is continuing to evolve, the platform required to drive business process improvement and the competencies IT teams must gain to define SOA requirements from the top down. Your questions will be answered live during the event.
