JAOO Symposium for Managers

[Danish description]

EOS invites Managers to JAOO Symposium in Cannes. Software Process Improvement (SPI) and Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) are two new important trends in software development. Attend the JAOO Symposium in Cannes and make sure that your company gets pole position!

How ready are your company for developing software? With the rise of "agile" programming, the traditional discipline has been challenged. Does the disciplined approach of CMMI (Capability Maturity Model) conflict with the agility needed when developing network-based systems? Is it possible to combine both SPI directions to achieve the best solution? In the tension between discipline and agility it is discussed whether the old or the new paradigm will last; we'll be hearing from both sides!

SOA is the new standard way to build big distributing systems. The contemporary software development will have great influence on how the future systems should be build; how are services to be integrated across systems, how do we consider all platforms and what flexibility and elasticity does a service-oriented architecture demand? Amongst other things we take a look on how the SAP platform has developed from being monolithic to being a multitude of possibilites for services.

Monday May 24: JAOO Symposium for Managers starting with one day of Software Process Improvement (SPI).

Software Process Improvement

With the rise of 'agile' and lightweight programming methods such as eXtreme Programming this symposium takes a look at where the new paradigms stand in relation to more traditional models as exemplified by CMMI, the latest revision of the Capability Maturity Model. Does the disciplined approach of CMMI conflict with the agility needed when developing network-based systems of of interlocking services, and can agile development methodologies scale to projects with several hundred or even thousand developers? Is it possible to combine both SPI directions for a best-of-both-worlds synthesis? We'll be hearing from experts from both sides of the divide, if indeed there is one!

Tuesday May 25: JAOO Symposium for Managers continued with a day on service-orienteret architecture (SOA).

SOA - Service-Oriented Architectures

This symposium is about the movement of the ubiquitous SAP platform towards a service-oriented model where the previous 'closed world' of the monolithic application server is opened up with a multitude of externally accessible services based on object-oriented open standards. The talks will look at the requirements for flexibility and resiliency imposed by a services oriented architecture, and how enterprise application platforms can be adapted to a new open structure.
