On Day Two of the meeting, featured speaker Amit Sinha, VP of Portfolio Marketing, SAP will present "The Business Case for Service Oriented Architecture - Business Network Transformation."

The two-day meeting will also feature an update on the US Army Adoption Project as well as meetings of the various strategy groups.

The SOA Consortium mission, strategies and tactics center on the following premises:

  • Service-oriented architecture adoption is a key enabler for the 21st century enterprise
  • Achieving the benefits of service-oriented architecture requires significant changes for both IT and business executives
  • Service-oriented architecture is a business agility story, not just an IT integration story
  • Enterprise SOA practitioners would greatly benefit from a vibrant practitioner community to drive local, business-driven, SOA success, and to spur broader enterprise, and industry-wide, SOA adoption.

The SOA Consortium meeting is December 12-13, 2007 in Burlingame, Calif., at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport hotel. Organizations interested in joining the SOA Consortium and attending the meeting should visit the website, for more information.
