The Group discussed open source trends in systems management. Panel participants discussed both the benefits and precautions to take when investigating open source management software. Nora Denzel recently retired from Hewlett Packard as the senior vice president and general manager of...
The success of open source software has been placing pressure on the business models of proprietary software vendors. In response, many software vendors have shifted from a paid-for license model to an open source business model. This presentation will explore the emerging trend of pro...
Today's identity management systems help organizations gain control over identity information in the enterprise, however, these systems are silos - and despite industry standards, there is very little interoperability. The Bandit project provides open-source identity services that redu...
While enterprise open source vendors continue to debate the definition of 'open,' customers are listening. Not because they care as much about what open source business model a particular vendor uses but because our debates give them reason to be confused and to consider the FUD that i...

The original goal of the service-oriented architecture (SOA) concept was to build flexible, loosely coupled systems. That meant removing or lessening the runtime dependencies between components or endpoints. One of the best, if overused, examples of loosely coupled systems is the way t...
The momentum behind service-oriented systems is intense and the hype machine is in full swing. Consequently, it is tempting to believe that if you slap a SOAP/REST/JSON/etc., wrapper around all your enterprise systems, you will be able to cash in on the service-oriented ROI. The fact i...
SOA is becoming the prevailing choice for IT enterprises and the success of this transition to an SOA is based on quality of the SOA governance solution. This session will highlight why SOA governance is crucial for the successful transition to SOA. It will also discuss how to build po...
