Layer 7 Technologies to Present at SOA World Conference in NYC

K. Scott Morrison to discuss how to avoid bad practices

SYS-CON Events announced today that K. Scott Morrison, Chief Architect of Layer 7 Technologies, will be presenting at the upcoming SOA World Conference & Expo 2009 East (www.soaworld2009.com) June 22-23, 2009, in New York City.

His session will be entitled "How to Fail at SOA"

K. Scott Morrison is the Chief Architect at Layer 7 Technologies, where he works to scale, simplify and secure Web applications. He has extensive IT and scientific experience in a number of industries, was previously Director of Technology at Infowave Software, and has also held senior architect positions at IBM.

How to Fail at SOA
Successful SOA implies success with an actual implementation. Yet SOA never begins fully formed; rather, it emerges from the primordial network ooze as a proof-of-concept or modest suite of Web services applications. This is a critical evolution, which if mishandled, can disillusion participants, loose the confidence of stakeholders and render a carefully designed SOA just another failed IT initiative. Layer7 has more than six years' experience building real SOAs for governments and some of the world's largest corporations. We have repeatedly witnessed bad implementations, poor judgment and other pitfalls. Avoid a few bad practices, and your SOA might just succeed.

In these recessionary times when every IT dollar must be made to count, the 15th International SOA World Conference & Expo (June 22-23, 2009, in New York) will be about showing attending delegates how their business or organization can start doing the same, and offering them resources, ideas and examples they can apply immediately.

This June's SOA World, which is the world's number one longest-running SOA event, will feature parallel content-rich tracks reflecting the worldwide adoption of the distributed computing paradigm, in which web services are deployed through specific service-oriented architectures and in which reusable components are core to the overall vision.

The technical program in June in New York City will provide a framework about how to understand policies, composites, lifecycle governance, loose coupling, heterogeneous distributed systems, adaptability vs. stability, service portfolio management - every relevant aspect of SOA as a framework for constructing and interlinking a company's back-end systems with the overall goal of lowering cost and adding flexibility.

Many organizations have already adopted SOA development models to deliver flexible and agile application components, but SOA is about people as much as technology, which is why so many companies send delegates to SOA World to accelerate their journey toward becoming SOA-enabled enterprises.

Architects, developers and managers making SOA design decisions will learn about CIO-pleasing governance principles and much more. There's simply no other conference like it.

Come join us in New York's midtown Manhattan in June!

Delegates Will Learn How SOA Can:

  • Help their businesses respond more quickly and cost-effectively to changing market conditions
  • Promote the goal of separating users (consumers) from the service implementations
  • Let them achieve the optimum balance between business needs, technology potential, and IT costs

The big winners in the world of online commerce are those that make the quality of the user experience (UX) the centerpiece of their overall online strategy.

In the current economic climate, IT managers are under continuous pressure to justify spending time and money on user-experience research and design. What does that mean to developers, architects, business users, and value?

At the 7th International AJAX World RIA Conference & Expo in New York City this June, the conference theme is "Driving Profitability Through the User Experience" - there will be the year's top keynotes, general sessions, breakout sessions, and industry panels that explore and explain how simple, rich interfaces that don't get in the way of the user's experience but enhance it are increasingly becoming tied to value creation, profitability and staying-power in the marketplace.

IT professionals of every stripe will come away with an enhanced understanding of what it takes to effectively evaluate, design and build online experiences that are compelling, usable, and profitable. Our organizing principle is that attending delegates should leave the Conference with abundant resources, ideas and examples they can apply immediately to leveraging the technologies they see on display and hear under discussion.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
