Session Overview
Service-oriented architecture promises an architectural strategy to ensure that the IT infrastructure that supports the business is agile, flexible and cost-effective. British Energy embraced this architectural strategy for a large internal business change program and realized that the strategy for execution is not just about enterprise service buses, service repositories and registries, WSDL, BPM and BAM.

Jeremy Lock and Sohel Aziz will talk about the impact of SOA on an IT organization's people, processes and technology. They will discuss some of the key challenges in SOA adoption and what companies need to look out for while dealing with "SOA from the trenches".
