"SOA Guy vs Web 2.0 Guy" Live AJAX Demo on SYS-CON.TV

The convergence of SOA and Web 2.0 architecture

SOA is well established now - executives have bought into SOA and it is fast becoming the enterprise architecture, but it's not user-centric. Web 2.0 is also going strong with MySpace, YouTube, and Friendster, as well as AJAX, RIA, mashups, and Web-oriented architecture, but how does it relate to IT? In this session, Coach Wei and Bob Buffone discuss the convergence of SOA and Web 2.0 architecture into Enterprise Web 2.0 and how to build collaborative-based applications that are more effective.
