Are the constant demands of dynamic business conditions outpacing your IT Department's ability to keep up?

Are your Software Developers spending too much time in application maintenance such that they are unable to create the new applications that will move the business forward?

Are your concerned about your ability to retain your most valuable Developers?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, it might interest you to know that there is an answer to all of these questions.

Mark your calendars for December 6, 2006 at 12pm EST. Give us a fraction of your time and we will give back valuable information about:

  • Why SOA is the foundation for business and IT agility
  • How SOA enables IT to keep pace with the business
  • The reason business services are the building blocks of SOA-based applications
  • How modeling business services improves developer productivity versus traditional coding methods

Ron Schmelzer, Senior Analyst at Zapthink, and Jack Kennedy, Co-Founder and Vice President of Product Delivery at Skyway, will cover these topics clearly and in great detail. And at the end of the presentation, Ron and Jack promise to answer your situation-specific questions.
