Panel Discussion
SOA 2.0
The limit case of current business trends for de-centralization is a virtual enterprise where there is no centralized legal entity, but a fabric of cooperating partners. SOA can provide a means to support the operation and deliver the products of such an enterprise, if we can resolve issues relating to contract, responsibility, identity, and security. At the same time, we have the emergence of Web 2.0, a second generation of Internet-based services - such as social networking sites, wikis, communication tools, and folksonomies - that emphasize online collaboration and sharing among users. Will we see a convergence of SOA and Web 2.0 technologies, leading to a second-generation SOA to support the virtual enterprise? This session will address that question, assisted by a panel of experts.
