OK, we do a lot of Webcasts, and I don’t plug most of them here, but I’ll call attention to this one. Dan and I have an MSDN Webcast called “Scaling SOA in Financial Services with Grid Computing for .NET” on June 12 at 10:00 AM Pacific time — mark your calendar now. Here’s the MSDN description:
Enterprise architects in financial services are looking to service-oriented architectures (SOA) to address many real-world problems – brittle systems with tight interdependencies, data stuck in single-purpose silos, and applications that don’t scale to meet growing demand, to name a few. But implementing an SOA can also expose new scalability issues. New high-performance computing (HPC) offerings from Microsoft and its partners are ideally suited for scaling out compute-intensive components of an SOA. Using real-world examples from financial services companies, this presentation will describe how to grid-enable compute-intensive analytic services for use in an SOA.
You can sign up for the event here. (True, somehow all references to Digipede, John Powers, and Dan Ciruli are omitted from this description, but it’s us nevertheless.) Hope to see you there!
