09:00 - 10:30 Welcome and Invited Talk

· Keynote Speaker is Donald F. Ferguson, IBM Fellow, IBM Software Group.

Linking Business Architecture with Information Technology Architecture.

Abstract: Service Oriented Architectures are one of the major trends in enterprise architectures. Enterprises realize SOA through a set of Web service standards, which include SOAP, WSDL and WS-Policy. These standards focus on formally documenting services' external interfaces, which enables reuse, replacement and rapid assembly of composite applications. An additional set of standards is emerging that focuses more on "how" to build services, and on integrating seemly disparate Web service standards. This presentation will explain the role and benefits of the Service Component Architecture. Much of SCA is well-documented, but there is a vision that products are beginning to realize that is less well understood. This presentation will explain the role of SCA in simplify SOA solution development, and enabling Business Driven Development. BDD links IT solutions with business goals. Finally, component models of the business itself are emerging, and we explain the relationship of business component models with SCA. We will end with a summary of research challenges and future directions.
