Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) March 2, 2007
ZapThink, LLC, and the Linthicum Group, LLC, have combined forces to offer the first seminar aimed at those looking for practical advice and real-world examples of SOA within government. This one-day event, entitled: "Practical SOA for the Federal Government" will be held April 26th, 2007, in the Washington, DC area. Created to pack as much value into one day as possible, this event aims to provide the expertise of David Linthicum, ZapThink analyst Ronald Schmelzer, and expertise from industry veterans to provide the most up-to-date, organizationally relevant, and complete guidance on SOA in just one day.
"I'm exciting about doing this event with ZapThink," says David Linthicum, CEO of the Linthicum Group. "ZapThink is widely known for understanding SOA, and both Jason Bloomberg and Ronald Schmelzer are able to provide a clear vision and real experiences in SOA. This event gives attendees access to the 'dream team' for SOA, addressing a very important problem…how SOA works within the government, how to address governing notions such as FEA, and a step by step approach to get it right the fist time."
In this seminar the best of the best in the world of SOA take you through concepts, business issues, approaches, and technology to make SOA work within your organizations. We don't focus on the hype and the folks who have products to push, but on the "brass tacks" of making SOA work tomorrow for your agency. Together, ZapThink analyst Ronald Schmelzer and notable IT expert and master architect David Linthicum provide this information considering the special needs of government agencies and contractors, and focus on how you can make SOA a reality by looking beyond the hype, addressing your requirements, and selecting the right technology the very first time.
"This seminar fills a clear gap in SOA understanding and just makes sense," explains Ronald Schmelzer, Senior Analyst at ZapThink. "We see SOA adoption growing rapidly within the federal government, but the government has unique needs not met by other business-focused conferences. Along with David Linthicum, we are looking to address those needs, and demonstrate how to make SOA work for all government agencies. This event focuses on the SOA real-world and not theory."
