I’m excited to be chairing the upcoming Gartner Application Architecture, Development, and Integration Summit 8-10 December 2008 in Las Vegas, NV at Caesars Palace. The themes are SOA & Modernization: Beyond Business & IT Alignment.
This is our flagship SOA event and we are taking a little different tack than usual. In response to attendee feedback we have three SOA tracks aligned by maturity (beginning, intermediate, and advanced) with two more tracks (5 total) on IT modernization and the future of application development. I believe attendees will love the new format.
I’m also very excited about our main keynote speaker Malcolm Gladwell. I am a big fan of his books “The Tipping Point” and “Blink” and highly recommend both of them.
Please check it out. I’d love your comments on the summit and, of course, I hope to see you there.
