Web 2.0 is about enabling end users to easily access information from multiple sources, and use it in new and creative ways, including creating new applications, and customizing their interactive web experience. SOA is about providing an infrastructure that enables information and functions to be used in multiple applications. There would seem to be a natural connection between SOA and Web 2.0. Join this panel discussion and learn how they are related.

Why you should attend:
  • Learn how SOA can enable end users to create mashups
  • Learn how SOA can help provide widespread access to information
  • Learn how other organizations are enabling new innovative enterprise resources using a SOA
