Media Alert: Gartner Announces SOA & Application Development and Integration Summit 2009

SOA Health Check: In Tough Times, Reconsider Everything, Evolve, Enable Change

(PresseBox) (Surrey, ) What: Gartner SOA & Application Development and Integration Summit 2009, When: 24-25 June, Where: Royal Lancaster Hotel, London, UK

Details: IT departments are asking themselves: "Is there real value in service-oriented architecture (SOA) or is it just hype? What can it do for me right now?"

The Gartner SOA & Application Development and Integration Summit 2009 answers these critical questions by discussing how SOA and related technologies - including application development and integration, data integration, platform middleware, business activity monitoring (BAM), Web 2.0 and cloud - can help organisations efficiently tackle the challenges ahead and emerge from the downturn ahead of the competition.

At the Summit, 19 leading Gartner analysts will advise delegates striving to increase operational efficiency and reduce costs through SOA. In addition, they will help delegates derive value from architectural approaches such as events processing, business process management (BPM), composite applications, master data management (MDM), extreme transaction processing (XTP) and multi-enterprise B2B to take advantage of the opportunities tough times come with.

Over two days, the Summit features 38 Gartner sessions and nine end-user case studies in four tracks:

- The Business and the Governance of SOA
- Application integration and SOA Technology
- Operational Efficiency Through SOA
- Enabling Growth Through Multi-Enterprise SOA
