As companies try to extract value from service-oriented architectures, service orchestration -- the ability to compose new business services by building on existing ones -- will emerge as the major barrier to success. One reason for this is that tackling service orchestration using traditional programming & design techniques does not solve the problem of complexity.
The presentation by Steve Benfield will include: - Goal-directed orchestration and what it can mean for your SOA initiatives; - How modeling processes using goals, plans, and rules allow businesspeople & IT departments to speak the same language; - How to dramatically reduce the effort needed to model, understand, and implement complex processes; - How Goal-Oriented Orchestration helped cut the development of a 7,000 concurrent user global customer service application by more than 60%.
"We are pleased to have Steve Benfield as our guest speaker. An industry leader, he has working knowledge of various technologies related to J2EE, AJAX, RAD Tools, web services and SOA," said Robert Morris, SVP of Marketing and Strategy, GT Software. "We welcome area IT managers for what promises to be an evening of discussion and partnership."
"Goal-Oriented Orchestration relies on a set of goals, plans, and rules to design complex processes. It is the ultimate in loosely-coupled process modeling. Originally proven to reduce the complexity of the operation of NASA's space shuttle Discovery, we've found that it can dramatically reduce the time it takes to model, design, and implement complex IT systems," said Benfield.
Michael Kuhbock, Founder of the Integration Consortium, said, "The IC is committed to providing opportunities for our members to exchange information and learn from one another. We applaud the Atlanta Chapter for their leadership."
