Gartner ADDI conference presentations focus on enterprise SOA and cloud services governance
Los Angeles, CA – December 7th, 2010 – SOA and Cloud Services governance are more important than ever to enterprise IT organizations. During the Gartner Application Architecture, Development and Integration Summit (http://www.gartner.com/us/addi) in Los Angeles, November 15-17, 2010, more than half of the presentations focused on the importance of governance in helping to ensure the success of enterprise IT initiatives.
Information Technology and Information Systems are increasingly driving real business value as they enable new business opportunities as well as becoming crucial differentiators. IT organizations are leveraging service-orientation and cloud computing to cost-effectively become as agile as they need to be to compete in the modern markets and economies. With presentation titles including “What’s Wrong With Your SOA Governance?”, “Water Rides the SOA Wave”, and “Maturing SOA Governance in Complex Organizations”, more than 60 of the conferences 120 presentations, the senior executives attending the conference focused on the what, why, and how of governance as a key enabler for their cloud and SOA initiatives.
“The governance-centric content of the Gartner ADDI summit clearly reflects the realities and interests of senior IT and business executives in today’s highly competitive marketplace,” said Roberto Medrano, executive vice president of SOA Software. “Agility, reuse and cost-efficiency are not just industry buzzwords, they are critical success factors for all enterprises, but without effective SOA and Cloud Services Governance they are nothing more than an expensive pipe-dream.”
