Today, we jointly announced a curriculum at GeorgeTown university around SOA! This is in response to the needed skills that will be required from the market as SOA continues to be deployed.
Executives from Marriott International, The US Department of Interior and the Air Force today joined Paul Burnet, one of my lead soa marketeers, Professor Blake and Judith Hurwitz. Customers attending the event next week include the World Bank, Fannie Mae, Navy Federal Credit Union, FBI, IRS, and the Department of Homeland Security. In addition to these customers, other influences from the National Science Foundation, Educause, American Society for Engineering Education and the National Institute of Standards & Technology.
Here is the agenda! Very cool!
ABSTRACT“Applying SOA to Real World Problems”
Imagine a world where organizations and individuals can realize their capabilities, products, knowledge, even talents into services that can be accessible from the Internet. In the electronic commerce domain, it is easy to imagine when we consider product ordering and purchasing (e.g. Amazon or E-bay). Other examples transcend business, military, and even space travel. The purpose of this event is to introduce this emerging area of service-oriented computing and to illuminate the benefits of this methodology to organizations and consumers.
