Building Business Flexibility with SOA on System i
Al Grega, IBM

January 16, 2007 FASUG Meeting

Over a decade ago TCP/IP changed the way we connect hardware together, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is doing the same thing for software. SOA is not a product that you buy, rather it is a new way to look at your business and how to better adapt to the rapid changes you face every day. The technology behind SOA is not new, it is all based on mature industry standards. This session will examine the distinct entry points for SOA on the IBM System i. We'll talk about how you can leverage SOA standards for Reusing your existing applications, Connecting these assets more efficiently, how to interface with the people inside and outside your organization and how to apply these standards with business process management.
