Your business needs to drive down costs, eliminate duplicate systems,
processes and applications, as well as reduce risk and streamline
operations. With that challenge to face, now is the time to cut through
complexity, reduce siloed applications, and leverage component-based Web
services. Gain real value in evolving your current systems while avoiding
'ripping and replacing' your infrastructure so you can preserve the process
and functional DNA which defines and differentiates your business. Through
service oriented architecture (SOA), your organization can simplify complex
IT environments into modular components and make better use of existing
resources now and in the future.
As an IT professional, you're probably aware of the value of SOA; it's now
time to plan how and where to get started to achieve the most value. This
Webinar will feature a panel of experts who will discuss how to efficiently
reuse existing IT assets within an SOA and interconnect them with your
broader IT environment to make the most of your existing investments. This
Webinar will provide you with solutions to real-world business problems,
and the practical next steps for you and your organization to consider. An
interactive Q&A will follow.
Take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about:
- Modernizing, Simplifying and Service-enabling Legacy, Mainframe and Core Applications
- Transitioning from a business-driven development environment to SOA
- Replacing Point to Point Connections with an ESB
- Extending the lifespan and ongoing value of Business Applications
