BEA Systems Scheduled to Host Federal Executive Forum on Service-Oriented Architecture Strategy and Government Implementations

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BEA Systems, Inc. , a world leader in infrastructure software, today announced it will host, in association with Intel Corporation, a Federal Executive Forum for government technology managers featuring best practices in service-oriented architecture (SOA) strategy and implementation. The forum is scheduled to take place on Thursday, May 12, 2005, at the Ronald Reagan International Trade Center in Washington, D.C.

Leading technologists from federal agencies including the Office of Management and Budget, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the U.S. Air Force, along with executives from BEA, are slated to share real-world best practices and examples of how SOA can help benefit government technology infrastructures. The half-day event is scheduled to include keynotes from Colonel Vincent R. Snyder of the U.S. Air Force and Richard Burk of the Office of Management and Budget, as well as breakout sessions and networking opportunities.

According to Bruce Graham, vice president of World Wide Consulting Services, BEA Systems, and a speaker at the Federal Executive Forum, "A successful SOA strategy, which can result in cost savings and a flexible application infrastructure, hinges on reliable information from leading technologists and early adopters that have already begun to reap the benefits. This forum can give federal technology managers the relevant information they can use to address the unique needs of their own government enterprises."

Specifically, attendees of the BEA Federal Executive Forum can:

-- Hear high-level views of SOA strategy and learn how it applies to the government market.

-- Discuss real-world implementations of SOA in the federal government.

-- Learn from experts how they can use SOA to help re-use current technology investments and implement a transitional architecture which can produce measurable value.

-- See an SOA demonstration outlining time-to-value and SOA readiness assessment factors.

-- Get a broad range of industry perspectives on SOA implementations in government: What has worked? What are the remaining challenges? What are the best practices and how can they be utilized?
