Managing the Transition to Net-centricity with Open Source SOA Road Maps

Robert J. Williams to speak on SOA governance at GovIT Expo

SOA & WOA Magazine on Ulitzer

An Open Source SOA Roadmap is a SOA governance stone that kills two items - spaghetti enterprise architectures and endless middleware license fees. Robert J. Williams Jr, Chief Enterprise Architect at Maxworks, will demonstrate how in a breakout session to be given at SYS-CON's 1st Annual Government IT Conference & Expo (GovITExpo).

About 1st Annual Government IT Conference & Expo
Government IT Conference & Expo (GovITExpo.com), which is being held October 6, 2009 in Washington, DC, builds on the success of SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Expo, the fastest-growing conference anywhere in the world devoted to the delivery of massively scalable IT as a service using Internet technologies. Agency CIOs and CTOs need the flexibility to choose the best tools to accomplish their mission regardless of platform. Cloud computing, virtualization, SOA, security and compliance are among the major themes of the technical program.

October 6 Keynote from the Deputy CIO of the CIA
The Opening Keynote at the 1st GovIT Expo is being given by Jill Tummler Singer, Deputy Chief Information Officer at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). It is titled "Enterprise Cloud Computing - The Infrastructure's Ultimate Revenge."

With GovITExpo we widen and broaden our reach to embrace those who are bringing technology into the Federal domain. This high-energy event is a must-attend for senior technologists involved in Government IT at every level including CIOs, CTOs, directors of infrastructure, VPs of technology, IT directors and managers, network and storage managers, network engineers, enterprise architects, and communications and networking specialists.

There are breakout sessions on the security issues that are unique to the Cloud, such as the crucial distinction between Private and Public clouds. Expert speakers from government and the software industry alike will be looking at issues such as the requirements for how companies can handle government information and how information can be most successfully shared by multiple clouds.

Doing more with less is the new reality for most IT departments, and the Government is no exception. So the cost-effectiveness of technologies such as Virtualization are also foremost on the agenda, which you can view by clicking on the middle link below:
