Dan and I will be at another one-day conference in New York on Monday, February 11 — this one is Web Services / SOA on Wall Street, at the Roosevelt Hotel. We’ll be in booth 211.
I’ll be interested to see what the crowd is like. While the broader IT world remains somewhat divided on how widely applicable service-oriented architectures really are, we’ve seen many of our financial services clients moving quite rapidly toward SOA.
We’ve been helping these clients build scalable services using grids based on the Digipede Network. And, as Rob and Dan said so well in their now-classic Dr. Dobb’s article on grid computing and SOA, ” You can’t build a scalable SOA on top of services that don’t scale.”
We’ll have some nifty demos (as always), and some new customer stories (ditto), and some controversial opinions to contribute to the conversation (no surprise there, either). If you’ll be there, contact me and we’ll find a way to meet up.
