Winnipeg, Manitoba - April 12, 2005 - Online Business Systems, an international provider of business and technology consulting and enterprise integration solutions, is hosting a half-day Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) forum on April 13. Guest speakers Ronald Schmelzer and Jason Bloomberg, internationally recognized ZapThink analysts, will bring insight on architectural and organizational changes brought about by the movement to XML, Web Services, and Service Orientation.
Bloomberg and Schmelzer will present an overview of Service-Oriented Architecture and provide a roadmap for standards-based, loosely coupled distributed computing. “As companies move to adopt a Service-Oriented Architecture, their application development process will change,” said Bloomberg. “It's crucial for developers, business users of information technology, and the consultants that serve them to understand the changing nature of applications and the process for creating and managing them in the context of SOA.”
“Online Business Systems is dedicated to helping our customers understand how to use XML, Web Services, and SOA to meet their business needs," said Tim Siemens, Chief Technology Officer for Online Business Systems. "As thought leaders in the integration arena, we are pleased to have the opportunity to host this informative forum with senior ZapThink analysts and enable a greater understanding of the benefits of SOA.”
Business and technical breakout sessions, examining specific case studies and an in-depth technical review of SOA, will follow the presentation.
