Session 2
Light Weight SOA Governance - A Case Study

Session Details
The IS&T division of ABC Company was facing high maintenance costs due to the proliferation of in-house applications built over a period of time. In addition, the company had to address redundancies and heterogeneity of technical landscape. The fragile point-to-point integration architecture decreased the responsiveness of IT to new business needs. To address these challenges, the company began an SOA exercise. Experts from the SOA Center of Excellence, Infosys, demonstrate, with the help of a case study, how the company adopted SOA governance and addressed issues during adoption.

Session 3
Inter-organizational Architectural Framework Leveraging Web Services and AJAX

Session Details
This paper discusses a prototype for managing complex inter-organizational interconnections with partners using web services and leveraging AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML), to conduct a responsive web services behavior. The architectural approach focuses on the benefits of web services at the back-end, and at the same time increases end-user usability at the front-end.
