Sponsorship & Exhibits

Message from OASIS Chairman of the Board

SOA requires many organizations to embrace a new way of thinking about how they do business. Solution providers are challenged to move beyond selling technology to educating and advising prospects on methodologies that support open standards and deliver real interoperability. 'Open Standards 2008: Composability within SOA' is designed to help you meet that challenge.

The event will attract an audience of approximately 200 CIOs, system integrators, and senior IT decision-makers anxious to learn more about building composable Service Oriented Business Applications using SCA, SDO, and related specifications like WS-BPEL, SOA-RM and others. As a sponsor or exhibitor, you'll connect with prospective customers who understand the benefits your products offer. We invite you to take advantage of this unique opportunity to reinforce your position as a leader in the SOA community.
