Seven SOA Experts Co-Author Practical ''How-To'' Book, ''An Implementor's Guide to SOA: Getting it Right''

Paul Butterworth Hemant Ramachandra
Chief Technology Officer Managing Director, Business Systems Integration

The book provides practical advice to those planning an SOA implementation as well as those in the midst of implementing one. Readers will learn how to avoid the most common pitfalls of SOA implementations including designing for reuse and error handling, understanding registry governance over services lifecycle, evaluating different ESBs and their impact on the SOA infrastructure, managing effective run-time governance, positively influencing the organizational impacts of multiple technology teams creating different modules/components that must work together, training internal SOA teams for optimal effectiveness, and setting and measuring progress during every stage of the SOA implementation.

So the dumpster is on fire. Again. The site's down. Your boss's face is an ever-deepening purple. And you begin debating whether you should join the #incident channel or call an ambulance to deal with his impending stroke. Yes, we know this is a developer's fault. There's plenty of time for blame later. Postmortems have a macabre name because they were once intended to be Viking-like funerals for someone's job. But we're civilized now. Sort of. So we call them post-incident reviews. Fires are never going to stop. We're human. We miss bugs. Or we fat finger a command - deleting dozens of servers and bringing down S3 in US-EAST-1 for hours - effectively halting the internet. These things happen.
Hackers took three days to identify and exploit a known vulnerability in Equifax’s web applications. I will share new data that reveals why three days (at most) is the new normal for DevSecOps teams to move new business /security requirements from design into production. This session aims to enlighten DevOps teams, security and development professionals by sharing results from the 4th annual State of the Software Supply Chain Report -- a blend of public and proprietary data with expert research and analysis.Attendees can join this session to better understand how DevSecOps teams are applying lessons from W. Edwards Deming (circa 1982), Malcolm Goldrath (circa 1984) and Gene Kim (circa 2013) to improve their ability to respond to new business requirements and cyber risks.

The digital transformation is real! To adapt, IT professionals need to transform their own skillset to become more multi-dimensional by gaining both depth and breadth of a wide variety of knowledge and competencies. Historically, while IT has been built on a foundation of specialty (or "I" shaped) silos, the DevOps principle of "shifting left" is opening up opportunities for developers, operational staff, security and others to grow their skills portfolio, advance their careers and become "T"-shaped.
