Web Services: Clarity through the Cloud

Todd Gill, President, Ossia Systems

Web services have emerged as one of the most powerful technologies for integrating applications in existence. From desktop applications, to complex web applications, to PDA applications - web services are the standard for application integration. As this technology has matured, an ever-growing number of companies (and individuals, whether they know it or not) are using this technology every day. This discussion will explain how this extremely useful technology can help you:

  • Securely integrate your existing applications and systems - even if they run on different platforms, in different locations, and on different networks
  • Outsource specific pieces of application functionality to 3rd party vendors
  • Offset risk by using 3rd party web services to handle sensitive transactions or to store sensitive data (or create additional revenue streams by handling these transactions for others)
  • Extend the life of your existing code libraries, reducing the frequency of costly re-writes
  • Use all of the above to effectively build and manage your company's application portfolio

12:30pm - 1:30pm Luncheon

  • Why some initiatives fail while others are surprisingly successful
  • How the business can inadvertently set IT up for failure
  • Understanding your organization in terms of process, roles and metrics
  • How to measure success in a way that makes the most sense to the business
