As I mentioned earlier, I went to the ITLC Conference this week to speak on SOA. The official session title was “Driving Transportation Efficiencies with SOA”. The format was two 30 minute presentations, followed by a Q&A period. My co-conspirator was none other than Maja Tibbling, Principal Enterprise Architect for Con-Way Transportation.
As you may recall, Con-Way was a winner in the 2008 SOA Consortium Case Study Contest. Con-Way has a great business transformation story, powered by SOA and Event Processing.
After Maja delivered the SOA in Transportation presentation, I gave a new 30-minute talk on “6 Secrets to Successful SOA”. The secrets all pertain to standing up and managing a successful, sustainable program. The discovery of these secrets was through my work with the SOA Consortium and Elemental Links (workshops, consulting).
I’ve posted the presentation to slideshare. Take a look. And yes, you can use the slides, with attribution to me.
