SAP To Present "ESA Adoption With SOA" Webinar

SAP customers interested in pursuing SOA are faced with numerous options as they consider their architecture strategy

Scott Campbell, author of "Mastering Enterprise SOA with SAP NetWeaver" will present a webinar.

SAP customers interested in pursuing SOA are faced with numerous options as they consider their "TO BE" IT architecture strategy. SAP's Enterprise Services Architecture (ESA) roadmap is an excellent blueprint for how SOA technologies can be combined with business applications to derive and align business goals with IT investments. Our presentation will cover some of the topics and questions vital to a successful plan:

- Planning for ESA Adoption
- Vendor Neutral SOA-Centric Approach Best Practices
- Considerations for a Hybrid Approach
- SOA Roadmap and Implementation for SAP

This presentation will provide pragmatic recommendations and best practices for balancing SOA and ESA.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: IT Executives, Enterprise Architects, Business Line Manager and Project Managers who are determining and developing ESA adoption.

Attend this webinar and become eligible to receive a free copy of the recently released book "Mastering Enterprise SOA with SAP NetWeaver" published by Wiley and authored by Scott Campbell and Vamsi Mohun. If your interests are for a one-to-one discussion with the authors please contact us directly to schedule.

SOA and Web Services technologies will be explored during the upcoming SOA Web Services Edge Conference & Expo which will take place on June 25 - 26, 2007 in New York City. Last year's event was sponsored by the world’s leading SOA technology providers and these presentation are now available at  the SYS-CON.TV website.
