Fourth Quarterly Emerging Technology Components Conference, June 3, 2004, at The MITRE Corporation, MITRE-1 Building Auditorium, 7525 Colshire Drive, McLean, VA 22102-7508    (QW)

Title:    (QX)

Emergence of a Distributed Services Grid: Realizing Multiplicative Returns when eGovernment Service Components Align in a Services-Oriented Architecture    (R0)

Purpose:    (R1)

To Explore the Potentials and Realities of Realizing Enterprise Architecture through the Lessons of Communities Building the Grid    (R2)

How do the common "build" principles that power the Internet illumine the agile path from today's business process conversations to tomorrow's business process components? How do semantic technologies lightly abstract and assemble shared meaning to sustain quality business conversations? What distributed enterprise design tools accommodate the multiple forms of expertise that need to be expressed and integrated in agile business components within each Services life-cycle? What can we learn from early developers and early adopters?    (R3)
