Speaker Bio: Benjamin Rudolph leads SWsoft's global communication, awareness and public outreach efforts. He joined SWsoft in 2005 as Parallels' first US-based employee, where he was responsible for launching the company's portfolio of desktop virtualization solutions. Prior to SWsoft, he managed corporate communications for Jinfonet, a leading provider of Business Intelligence (BI) solutions, and for Aptagen, a biotech company focused on custom gene and protein design.
Service-oriented architectures (SOAs) have evolved over the past few years out of the original vision of loosely coupled web services replacing constrained, stovepiped applications throughout enterprise IT. Every major enterprise technology vendor today has developed its own SOA strategy, supported by innumerable mid-size companies and start-ups offering specific SOA aspects or entire solutions. This explosive growth in SOA technology is in response to a global demand--IDC estimates that spending on SOA services alone will grow from $8.6 billion to more than $33 billion by 2010.

SOA World Conference & Expo 2007 brings together the best minds in the business to San Francisco for a two-day conference that offers comprehensive coverage of SOA and what it means to enterprise IT today.

Attend SOA World Conference & Expo 2007 West and learn from more than 100 speakers about how SOA is transforming business--and the way IT and business managers think about their businesses, processes, and technology.
