Delivering the #1 i-technology educational
and networking opportunity of the year!

The 10th International SOA Web Services Edge Conference, colocated with the First Annual Enterprise Open Source Conference, will take place on June 5-6, 2006 at the historical Roosevelt Hotel in New York City. SOA Web Services Edge and Enterprise Open Source Conference together deliver the #1 i-technology educational and networking opportunity of the year.

This year, more than 100 distinguished conference faculty members will present 96 cutting-edge SOA, Web Services and Enterprise Open Source topics in educational classes, panels, and keynotes in six simultaneous tracks for two information-packed days, plus a bonus track, a "Real-World AJAX" two-day seminar, a $1,295 value!

The conference program does not merely present a comprehensive view of all the development and management aspects of integrating a SOA strategy and an Open Source philosophy into your enterprise, its organizing principle is that delegates will go away from the intense two-day program replete with why-to and how-to knowledge delivered first-hand by industry experts.

According to analyst firm Gartner Group, by 2008 more than 60 percent of enterprises will use SOA as the guiding principle when creating mission-critical applications and processes. "Businesses that ignore the potential of SOA will find themselves outpaced by rivals who improve their agility and transform themselves into new kinds of enterprises," says Gartner analyst Yafim Natis.

Meanwhile, the Open Source revolution has spread into traditional areas of enterprise IT, with all major vendors and a global group of Open Source entrepreneurs developing the technology and delivering the solutions that are changing the way the world does business and the way governments serve their citizens.

Keynotes & "Power Panels"

The conference Keynotes promise to be major events for the i-technology industry and for the City of New York. The opening SOA Keynote on Monday, June 5, will feature Bill Coleman, founder and CEO of Cassatt, while Open Source visionary entrepreneur JBoss CEO Dr. Marc Fleury will deliver the Enterprise Open Source keynote on Tuesday, June 6, 2006, at 8 AM.

On Monday, June 5 at 5:40 PM, Joel Spolsky, author of Joel on Software, and founder of Fog Creek Software will speak on Making Truly Great, "Blue-Chip" Software Products.

The keynotes are complemented by two "Power Panels" in which leading industry executives and technologists - in a fast-moving format moderated by SYS-CON Group Publisher & Editorial Director Jeremy Geelan - will dissect fundamental issues. The high-powered participants will inform, stimulate, and inspire with their personal and professional passion for technology. They'll show with examples how it will continue to transform and empower business and profitability in 2006 and beyond as the world's economic climate finally changes, resulting in higher levels of technology spending. But above all they will engage with attendees. This is your Conference and the moderator will ensure that questions from the floor will be given the highest possible priority!
