OASIS Symposium 2008 - composability within SOA

This will be great event for learning how SOA supports composability.

For the event home page :
" This exciting two-day event will explore the advantages of applying Service-Oriented Architecture techniques for assembling and tuning applications developed on different platforms and managed by different owners. You'll learn how others are addressing challenges, share your own viewpoints, compare notes, make connections, and explore why open standards are critical to success.

This year's event opens with keynote addresses from Peter Carbone, Vice President—Service Oriented Architecture at Nortel and Douglas Shoupp, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP; and will close with an interactive panel where industry vendors and practitioners come together to discuss SOA within vertical industries. "

I am presenting "lightweight" composability using Mashup.

There are two different types of enterprise IT projects in Web 2.0 and SOA : systematic , long term projects which gives conservative reliability, whereas opportunistic, short term projects (or “situational applications”) using "lightweight" compositin of services are for competitive agility. Mashups fit into the later one.

Please attend the presentation with lotz of questions. I promise to make it as interactive as possible.

OnDemand Integration – Integration-as-Service

SaaS based applications continue to grow at a staggering rate. According to software market analysts, SaaS represented approximately 5% of business software revenue in 2005 and, by 2011, 25% of new business software will be delivered as SaaS and will grow at a 21% % annual growth rate (CAGR) during the next four years.

As the acceptance and popularity of SaaS applications has continued to rise dramatically, traditional enterprise integration software has become the Achilles heel of the SaaS industry. Additionally, the wide variety of SaaS vendors specializing in different areas has resulted in companies attempting to stitch together information from a number of different places. Traditional integration software products are inconsistent with the values of SaaS in terms of cost, complexity and time to implement. SOA and XML driven application integrations are very well suited for this purpose. But demand will continue to grow for easy to use, manageable, highly scalable on-demand integration.

I will present how this trend relates to enterprise mashup in Ajax World 2008 West.
