EDOC 2008 Conference Program
EDOC 2008 Industry Track Sessions
The EDOC 2008 industry tracks will focus on the business view
of enterprise computing and will cover enterprise computing
topics with high industry impact.
Large scale adoption of enterprise computing technologies is still lagging behind the
especially in public administrations and small to medium sized enterprises.
We will discuss adoption and business model strategies enabling organizations to implement
leading edge solutions and infrastructures.
Every track will include expert
presentations, workshops or application labs for demonstrating
enabling technologies, business concepts and scenarios. Leading edge researchers and
industry representatives will present keynote speeches covering hot topics
and important business issues in the software and services areas.
As initial suggestions, the organizers propose industry tracks covering or related to
the following thematic areas--
- Business Process Management (BPM) Standardization Pathways
- While BPMN and WS-BPEL are increasingly accepted across multiple BPM tools and
and platform vendors, additional specifications addressing human task issues (e.g., BPEL4PEOPLE)
or relating to non-functional properties and semantics are being developed. How will they affect next
generation BPM products and services?
The focus of this track will be to bring together industry experiences and expectations
for BPM tools based on existing and emerging standards.
- SOA Registries
While UDDI-based service registries are increasingly becoming adopted for company internal
service infrastructures, many expectations of global service discovery for open interoperable
services have not been fulfilled. --
The purpose of this track is to discuss industry experiences and expectations regarding service
registry and discovery in practice and the implications for extended registry standards.
- Service Engineering -- From models to flexible business applications
In many research projects, the paradigm of web services is being extended to a more
general notion of services for different platforms, with more complex business models and
more comprehensive use cases including dynamic service compositions.
New model based development methods and tools enable fast development
and update cycles. --
The purpose of this track is to discuss industry experiences and expectations w.r.t. to service engineering
focusing on new software development models and enabling flexibility in business applications.
- Software as a service (SaaS)
The vision of a service based infrastructure with services being "mashed-up"
across service "clouds" is often seen as the future of information technologies. In practice,
however, many inhibitors, e.g. privacy concerns or legal issues
related to digital rights management,limit the business
impact of the SaaS approach. --
The purpose of this track is to discuss industry experiences and expectations w.r.t.
software service related business models (like QoS tiered services etc) for
telecommunications and software industries.
- Enterprise Component Frameworks
- Enterprise components (e.g., EJB 3.x and related) are essential
architecture elements for large scale high performance distributed enterprise applications. Despite
the growing ease of use of the component frameworks for developers there is still a lack of
adoption of them in deployed enterprise applications. -- In this industry workshop, essentials for using enterprise components and
best practices for design and deployment are discussed based on real world business examples. The track includes a focus on new
model driven and aspect based modeling techniques.
- Enterprise computing is increasingly facing challenges implied by
integrated application infrastructures
covering end user desktop management
and including service or application provisioning. Virtualization software is becoming wide spread
in data centers supporting large enterprise IT infrastructures.
-- This industry workshop will look at design, migration and management issues w.r.t. virtualization infrastructures in
enterprises and public organizations.
- IT Services Governance and Life Cycle Management
As integrated services are more and more prevailing in the enterprise application architectures, issues
relating to service management and applications analytics are becoming increasingly important to SW vendors and customer
enterprises. -- In this track, we discuss industry experiences and expectations regarding service management and governance
issues across the entire application life cycle.
