Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a hot technology today in the corporate world. Do you want to know why it is important for you to learn more about SOA? NJCCPS will host a free SOA Seminar on Saturday, February 23, 2008 at Sheraton Hotel, 199 Smith Road, Parsippany, NJ 07054, 1 PM - 6 PM. Three IBM guest speakers will present SOA and its related technologies Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) and Business Process Management (BPM).

Dr. Ko-Yang Wang, IBM Distinguished Engineer since 2000, will explain why it is important to the enterprises, and to business / IT professionals to learn more about SOA. Dr. Wang will also discuss values and pitfalls in adopting SOA and present current best practices.

In order to implement an SOA, both application and infrastructure must support the SOA principles. The Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) can help you achieve the goal of SOA. Ms. Jenny Chow, an IBM Senior Consulting Certified IT Integration Solution Architect., will explain four key ESB elements (Route, Convert protocols, Mediation, and Handle event) and why ESB is the first necessary step for your SOA journey. Jenny will also introduce current ESB offerings from IBM that you can take advantage for your business integration.

BPM and SOA are now mission-critical areas of focus for most organizations. BPM enabled by SOA adds another level of business efficiency, allowing organizations to create reusable business processes so that they do not have to rewrite code every time a new process needs to be implemented. Ms. Emily Hong, a Senior WebSphere Technical Sales Specialist at IBM, will explain how BPM linked with SOA can accelerate the pace of business change and increase return on investment.

In addition to the above technical presentation, Mr. Forrest Peng, a Technical Recruiting Specialist from Premium Technology, Inc. will present a topic on ¡°Selecting the Right Recruiter¡± that would benefit anyone who may be interested in career movement, currently or in the future.
