Aligning IT systems to business needs and improving service levels within the constraints of tight budgets has for long been the topmost challenge for CIOs and IT decision makers. Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) provides a proven strategy to clearly address both of these objectives. Creating more agile information systems and making better use of existing infrastructure are two leading factors that are boosting SOA adoption across large, medium, and small Indian industries from the BFSI, Retail, Telecom, Manufacturing, Pharma, Energy, Government and Services verticals in India. If you are an IT decision maker belonging to any of these verticals, SOA India 2007 (IISc, Bangalore, Nov 21-23 2007) presents a unique opportunity to gather cutting-edge business and technical insights on SOA and other related areas such as BPM, BPEL, Enterprise 2.0, SaaS, MDM, Open Source, and more.
At SOA India 2007, acclaimed SOA analysts, visionaries, and industry speakers from across the world will show you how to keep pace with change and elevate your IT infrastructure to meet competition and scale effectively. The organisers are giving away 100 FREE tickets worth INR 5000 each to the first 100 qualified delegates belonging to the CxO/IT Decision Maker/Senior IT Management profile, so hurry to grab this opportunity to learn about all things SOA. You can send your complete details, including your designation, e-mail ID, and postal address directly to Anirban Karmakar at firstname.lastname@example.org to enrol in this promotion that is open until 12 October 2007.
