Event Description  

The 2nd annual SOA Symposium brings together lessons learned and emerging topics from both Government and Industry SOA experts, practitioners and project teams. The theme of this year's SOA Symposium is "Discipline, Teamwork & Semantic Technologies" to make SOA a successful reality.


On April 21 and 22, 2010, please join Elizabeth McGrath, ADCMO; David Wennergren, DCIO; Paul Strassmann, Former Dir. of Defense Information; and Baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. as they impart the message of SOA and highlight the necessity of individual and team discipline.


The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has embarked on a path to implement SOA as a primary means to deliver increased capability to the warfighter by improving the efficiency and effectiveness of business operations. Industry around the world has demonstrated that SOA can substantially reduce the cost of IT infrastructure while greatly improving business agility. Both the IT and the business communities must jointly own and manage a proven inclusive architecture to achieve SOA success.


In 2009, the DoD SOA Symposium demonstrated that SOA must be considered a Team Sport, involving all elements of people, process, technology, and especially Trust. This 2nd Annual DoD SOA Symposium is focused on the Discipline necessary within each individual team member and the team as a whole to be successful; it will provide government and industry professionals with the experiences of individual and team's successes that are a result of best practice strategies for business intelligence, program management, information access, and much more.


The conference will host more than 30 presenters from federal agencies, industry and academia that cover the SOA lifecycle, technical issues, governance and policy aspects, as well as emerging innovations and issues of semantic integration and collaborative service-oriented solutions. The SOA Symposium is a premier conference offering a forum for practitioners, analysts, and industry representatives to present and discuss experiences and trends. These conference sessions are directed at business and technical architects, analysts, decision makers and IT practitioners.



Conference Tracks

Track 1: Service-Oriented Architecture & Solutions

This track is focused on the physical design of services and service-oriented solutions with an emphasis on exploring service-oriented technology architecture as a distinct form of distributed architecture. Also provided are sessions that address related considerations pertaining to the architectural impact of infrastructure, the creation of design specifications, the utilization of related technologies and practices, and how the emerging REST platform and related patterns and approaches can be leveraged in support of realizing service-orientation.


Track 2: SOA Case Studies

Real-life accounts of successful and failed SOA projects discussed first-hand by those that experienced the project lifecycles and have a story to tell. These veteran practitioners will provide advice and insights regarding challenges, pitfalls, proven practices, and general project information that demonstrates the intricacies of implementing and governing service-oriented solutions in the real world.


Track 3: Semantic Services, Data Management & Analytics

A series of diverse topics are represented by this track, including SOA and the semantic Web, semantic platforms for business intelligence, standards for data integration, SOA analytics and business intelligence, and performance and compliance management.


Track 4: Service Modeling, Service-Oriented Design & SOA Design Patterns

Fundamental phases in any SOA project are the analysis and design stages required to ensure that business and technology domains are being aligned as closely as possible throughout the service delivery process. This track contains sessions dedicated to service modeling and service-oriented design techniques, as well as the application of proven SOA design patterns. A focal point among these sessions is the exploration of SOA and business process modeling approaches, including the analysis and separation of business rules.


Track 5: Governance & Security

This track covers the individual governance of services, as well as independent collections of services (or inventories), service portfolios, and the governance and long-term evolution of service-oriented ecosystems in general. Also encompassed by this track are topics that address service security and security mechanisms for service-oriented solutions.
