Cloud-based Enterprise Architecture

We know service-oriented architectures can deliver huge agility benefits for developing new functionality through repeated service reuse. However, if our shared services become highly used, they may be subjected to massively increased loads from runtime events that we, as service owners, cannot predict. With the significant return on investment gained with the deployment of public and private clouds, virtualization technology is now making it possible to combine SOA infrastructures with monitoring and APM tools to elastically scale out service deployments in response to real-time load increases.

This session will take a technical deep dive into a service-oriented architecture engineered specifically for elasticity. The following questions will be explored:

  • How can I monitor the load on my Services?
  • How can I fire up additional compute capacity as a service becomes loaded?
  • How do I architect my SOA deployment to utilise the power and flexibility of a private or public cloud?
  • How do I deploy UDDI to ensure clients can fully utilise new capacity?
  • How can I see what is happening on my ESB infrastructure?
    This talk is aimed at for architects and developers who have moved beyond "playing" with SOA in the cloud, and are looking to deploy SOA into a cloud-based production environment.


More than 80 international subject matter experts will be speaking at the Symposium. Below are confirmed keynotes and speakers so far. Over 50% of the agenda has not yet been finalized. Many more speakers to come. View the partial program calendars on the Conference Agenda page.
