Web 2.0 and SOA Friend or Foe?

Bob Buffone's RIA Session at AJAXWorld, March 18-20, in New York City

Service oriented architecture (SOA) is finally being adopted at various enterprise environments after years of conceptualization and testing. However, the rapid rise of Web 2.0 puts SOA enterprise architecture into question:

This session will explore:

  • Do Web 2.0 and SOA play together?
  • What are the best ways to leverage SOA investment in a Web 2.0 world?
  • What is the best way to build and deploy Web 2.0 solutions based on SOA?
  • What do Web 2.0 technologies like Rich Internet Applications and AJAX mean to SOA?
  • What is a “mash-up?” Do “mash-ups” compete against SOA?

Drawing upon the speaker’s years of experience in pioneering Web 2.0 and several thousand of enterprise engagements, this session presents an enterprise Web 2.0 reference architecture that integrates SOA and Web 2.0 technologies. The session will show how different vendors/products form a Web2.0 and SOA ecosystem
