  • What: Progress's Dan Foody, vice president of Actional products, will cut through all of the confusion surrounding SOA governance to learn the ins-and-outs of the two key aspects of SOA runtime governance, visibility and policy enforcement, and the key challenges and strategies for addressing them.
  • Why: Studies show that Service Orientated Architecture (SOA) is used in more than 50% of new mission-critical applications and business processes and by 2010 this level will increase to 80%. With this rate of proliferation throughout the enterprise and the underlying importance of service reliability to these applications, businesses are now including Web service and SOA management and governance as top priorities.
