About the Symposium

Composability within SOA

Produced by OASIS and supported by analyst firm, IDC , and Open CSA, the OASIS Member Section that advances SCA and SDO

Join key decision makers and implementers of SOA solutions at Open Standards 2008. This exciting two-day event will explore the advantages of applying Service-Oriented Architecture techniques for assembling and tuning applications developed on different platforms and managed by different owners. You'll learn how others are addressing challenges, share your own viewpoints, compare notes, make connections, and explore why open standards are critical to success.

This year's event opens with keynote addresses from Peter Carbone, Vice President—Service Oriented Architecture at Nortel and Douglas Shoupp, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP; and will close with an interactive panel where industry vendors and practitioners come together to discuss SOA within vertical industries.
