SOA Consortium Releases New Podcast From Kshemendra Paul, Chief Architect, Office of Management & Budget (OMB) on ''The Prac

The SOA Consortium™ today announced that a podcast and slide deck of the presentation by Kshemendra Paul, Chief Architect, Office of Management & Budget (OMB) on “The Practical Guide to Federal Service Oriented Architecture (PGFSOA)” recorded at the SOA Consortium meeting in Washington, D.C. in March is now available. To access the podcast, visit http://www.soa-consortium.org/podcast-dc-kp-pr.

Kshemendra Paul presented an overview on the Practical Guide to Federal Service Oriented Architecture (PGFSOA) to a packed SOA Consortium meeting in March. He began with an overview on why SOA is important to the Federal government, key issues and success criteria. He briefly touched on two areas where standards are making an impact, including the Federal Transition Framework and the Records Management standards, both collaborations between the OMG and various government agencies.

Kshemendra mostly talks about the PGFSOA and the challenges, opportunities and benefits of Federal SOA. He discusses the benefits including the ability to share solutions, services, best practices and acquisition power across organizations and says that SOA is the key from moving from a vertical to a horizontal viewpoint. During his overview on Federal enterprise architecture, he stresses the need to view the use of IT from a business perspective and to expand the concept of reuse beyond components to entire architectures and solutions. He also talks about the need for bottom-up change and the goal of building a community, which is part of the rationale behind the PGFSOA wiki. Kshemendra concludes his presentation with a tour of the PGFSOA wiki.

To hear all of the insights Kshemendra presented, download the 34-minute podcast and accompanying slide presentation at http://www.soa-consortium.org/podcast-dc-kp-pr.

The next SOA Consortium meeting is in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada on June 25-26, 2008.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
